Code of Conduct

VikingsCon Code of Conduct​

At VikingsCon, the safety of all of our attendees and special guests is always our first priority. VikingsCon is a private event, and as such, we reserve the right to remove any person from the event. Because we are committed to providing a safe and positive environment, any person who mistreats or harasses another person will be removed immediately and not allowed to return to the event. We ask that you abide by common sense rules to guide your behavior: If someone does not want to interact with you, don’t interact with them. If you do not have permission to touch someone, don’t touch them. We rely on your good judgement and respect for others and their property to create a fun and memorable event, and would hate for you to miss it, so please take a moment to familiarize yourself with these rules so that doesn’t happen!


VikingsCon Terms of Service

All VikingsCon attendees and special guests are required to adhere to this Code of Conduct. The VikingsCon badge is required for admittance to any VikingsCon function. VikingsCon reserves the right to revoke, without refund, this badge for noncompliance with these terms, for disorderly conduct including, but not limited to, any behavior that is illegal, unsafe, disruptive, discriminatory, or causes excessive discomfort to another person, or for sale or attempted sale of a badge. Further, VikingsCon reserves the right to permanently exclude any person who does not comply with the Code of Conduct from future events.

 

VikingsCon attendees and special guests are required to adhere to the instructions of all VikingsCon staff and agents, all security staff and agents, the staff of the Charles County Fairgrounds, and any and all law enforcement personnel.

VikingsCon attendees and special guests agree to observe and comply with any and all policies, rules, and regulations of the Charles County Fairgrounds, all laws, statutes, ordinances, rules, and regulations of the Government of the United States, the state of Maryland, the county of Charles and the city of La Plata.


Liability

​You assume any and all risks occurring before, during, or after VikingsCon. You release VikingsCon and the Charles County Fairgrounds and their agents, licensees, assignees, and their respective affiliates and representatives from any related claims.


Prohibitions
​Alcohol, illegal drugs, weapons, and items that can be mistaken for weapons are expressly prohibited, even if they are part of a costume.

Access

All VikingsCon functions have limited capacities as determined by the Fire Marshal. Although your badge is required for admittance to all functions, it does not guarantee you access to any function if it has reached its capacity. All autograph and photo booth sessions are of a limited nature, and your badge does not guarantee access to all of them.

 

If You Need Immediate Help
​If you feel like your safety or the safety of another person is at risk, then please don’t hesitate to notify a VikingsCon staff member or security officer.
