Attending with Children
Thinking about attending GeekGirlCon with children? We welcome attendees of all ages and provide programming and experiences that are family-friendly. Past attendees have identified GeekGirlCon’s inclusivity and family-friendly environment as some of the aspects that make us stand out from other conventions.
We call our attendees ages 0-12 “geeklets.” Children under the age of six attend for free, and passes for children ages six to twelve are $10 for the weekend. All children are required to have a pass while on WSCC premises and must be accompanied by adult.
Most of our programming is appropriate for all ages. Some panels have age designations, which are enforced at the door by our agents. As the con draws closer, we’ll be highlighting a selection of panels, workshops, and events that we think are especially suited to geeklets!

We want to make GeekGirlCon a super-cool experience filled with excitement, education, and fun for all. We strive to create an event that works for all our attendees. We think inclusively about the range of needs, employ best practices to continually review our spaces, improve as we are able, and learn from our mistakes.
