Tallahassee Comic Con was created with the idea of making a convention where geeks, nerds, and fans of anything science fiction, fantasy, and pop culture can come together to celebrate our ongoing love for our fandoms. No one should feel excluded because their fandom isn't a major one, or because their fandom has gotten insulted, harassed, or tarnished.
We pride Tallahassee Comic Con on being a place where everybody is welcome and comfortable.
The following will not be tolerated by Tallahassee Comic Con:
Tallahassee Comic Con will have on site security officers. If you are subjected to or witness anything that violates our safe environment policy, please contact a security officer or volunteer immediately. You can also go to any of the Tallahassee Comic Con Information Booths or Ticket Booths where they will contact administration or security immediately.
If, at any time, you feel that your personal safety or the safety of others is in jeopardy, please contact 911. The non-emergency phone number for Consolidated Dispatch Agency is 850-606-5800.
