    • All Gender restroom signPenguicon has attendees, guests, and staff of all kinds of gender presentations. We have worked with the hotel to have clearly marked all-gender restrooms available on the second floor, as well as typically designated men’s and women’s restrooms on the first. There are gender neutral designated restrooms at many other conventions and universities – their purpose is to make sure no one can be accosted for being in “the wrong place” when they simply need to go to the bathroom. If someone gives you a hard time and you think you’re in the right place, please talk to us at Ops.
    • Maker Market Secure Room hours: Friday – 4pm to 9pm | Saturday – 10am to 9pm | Sunday – 10am to 3pm. Hallway hours are determined by each vendor.
    • You will not be charged an additional fee to participate in any events at Penguicon. Unlike last year, our Geeky Burlesque Show cannot accept tips.  Our sponsored charity, Arts & Scraps, is accepting cash through the silent auction and directly at their table. We will contact the winners on Saturday night!

      Don’t forget to visit our convention-run bookstore, the Writers’ Block, in the front lobby past the check-in desk. You can purchase a book authored by one of our Guests of Honor or any participating author (over 30!) who is currently attending, and you can find out the Reading Room schedule. Except for the GoH books (which we purchase separately), all non-tax proceeds go directly to those community authors!

    • Please give us feedback, good or bad, on how we’re doing this year.  (Please contact Ops for problems you need resolved during the weekend).
