All Service Animals are allowed. If you dog is not a service animal please be aware that Tell-Tale Steampunk Festival reserves the right to ask that you remove your dog from the festival area at any time.
We have a zero tolerance harassment policy. If anyone is found harassing another con goer, exhibitor, guest, or volunteer they will be instantly ejected from the convention and no refund will be given. If you feel you are being harassed, witness someone else being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact an a staff member immediately. Staff has the ability to contact local law enforcement, and can provide escort, or otherwise assist those feeling they have experienced harassment to ensure they feel safe for the duration of the convention. Also, and we can not stress this enough, COSPLAY IS NOT CONSENT!
Yes. We insist that your costume not have any parts or accessories that can readily cause harm to you, or any of your fellow con goers. No real weaponry (live firearms, metal blades or metal weapons of any kind, crossbows, etc.) may be carried. No AirSoft, Pellet, paint, or BB guns, basically no replica guns with moving parts. Nothing that can fire a projectile of any kind (Nerf weapons are the exception). Realistic guns MUST have an orange blaze on the tip, and must not be made of metal. Use common sense. If you have any worry that a part of your costume might cause a problem or get you removed from the convention, arrested, or injured, please leave it at home. We understand you are trying to create the most realistic and fantastic cosplay, and we want that for you too, however we must error on the side of safety and legality. Note that any convention staff member can ask you to take any item to your vehicle at any time if they feel that item may be a danger. All decisions on this by convention staff are final.
Well… yeah, sort of. Some people may not want their picture taken, and some artists/vendors may not want pictures taken of their work or products, so be sure to ask first. Please be sure not to block aisles when taking photos.
