New Youth Content Coming To HavenCon 4
From the beginning HavenCon has always strived to be a safe space for all ages and we are working to continue improving each year. That’s why we are very excited to announce that for HavenCon 4 we are working with OutYouth to bring more youth specific content to the show.
For HavenCon 4, we are adding:
- A Youth Only space. This space will be for those 17 and under to go for youth exclusive content presented by the community and members of the OutYouth family. This designated room will be open during “normal” convention hours from 8am – 6pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
- A Youth Only Dance! For the first time, we are hosting a youth dance, this dance will be for our younger friends between the ages of 11-17. The dance is included with any youth pass for HavenCon 4, and for those that only want to attend the dance, you can do that too with a suggested donation to OutYouth of $5 at the door. Costumes are highly encouraged!
We will have security and chaperones available at all times during these events to ensure the safety and well being of our younger attendees, however guardians are welcome to sit in on the panels as well.
OutYouth will have representatives on site for a variety of needs, so if anyone is looking to speak to someone from OutYouth, they will be available.
All those under the age of 18 must have a guardian with them at the show, but they may attend the youth programming without one.
Youth may attend ANY general panel or event during the “normal hours” but, as always, HavenCon is 18+ after 6pm and those younger will not be allowed into panels and After Hours events. The Arcade will remain all ages for as long as it is open during HavenCon.
We are still accepting Panel Submissions and will have more content on our schedule site once things are finalized.
Youth single and 3-day passes are available on our Registration Site and we are very happy to announce that we will be donating $5 of each Youth Pass sold to OutYouth!
We at HavenCon believe that fostering healthy youth in today’s world is one of the best things we could do for our future, and we are proud to offer a safer space to help foster that idea.
