This year, as in years past, FreeCon 14 will be held on the Florida State University campus, in the Oglesby Student Union. General parking will be in the Woodward garage, which is very easy to find once you pull in off Tennessee St. For your GPS, our physical address is 75 N. Woodward Ave. for the Oglesby Student Union. You will have to cross Woodward from the garage by foot to reach Registration. Upon arrival at the convention, attendees will check in at the front of the Main Events Room (Moore Auditorium), towards the back of the Studen Union. You will receive a map of FreeCon's other spaces there.
If you would like to be a panelist this year, you can fill out an application by scrolling to the top of this page, and finding 'Panel Registration' under the 'Registration' tab. If you would like to be part of FreeCon's Dealer's Room (Artist or Vendor), you can scroll to the top of this page and under the 'Registration' tab there will be a link to the Artist and Vendor Registration forms.
Vendor and Artist move-in starts at 6pm-10pm Friday. This means that only the vendors and artists can enter the room at this time in order for them to set up. The Dealer's Room will be open to the public from 11am-8pm on Saturday, and 11am-5pm on Sunday. This area also has some free seating where you can come and relax while your friends shop or if you need a rest.
Our IndieGoGo campaign is officially up and running!
Every year FreeCon runs an Indiegogo campaign, to raise as many funds as we can to supplement the quality of the convention. And it will run from December 16-January 30. Additionally, there are some reward tiers with cool swag for helping us out. This goes into printing, t-shirts, and media guests for you, the attendee, to enjoy. Please consider donating, or at least sharing the link with your friends. It should be up this year around the winter holidays, so look out!
If you'd like to help out by volunteering your time and manpower, we'd also love to hear from you! Under the 'Registration' tab at the top of this website, you will find 'Volunteer Registration', which will let us know your availability. We do offer volunteer hours if you're a student, and t-shirts!
*This page will be updated as soon as we secure any offical hotel partnerships and finalize room block specifics. Please check back in a few weeks!*
General parking will be in the Woodward garage, which is very easy to find once you pull in off Tennessee St. You will have to cross Woodward from the garage by foot to reach Registration. Upon arrival, attendees will check you in at the front of the Main Events Room (Moore Auditorium), towards the back of the Studen Union. There will be separate lines for those who pre-registered, so consider going to 'Pre-Registration' under the Registration tab before the con to cut the line! You will be registered otherwise on the spot, and you'll receive a map of FreeCon's other spaces. You will also be checked here for inappropriate props or cosplays. If you have an inappropriate cosplay (see 'Cosplay Restrictions?'), you will be asked to change or wash before admission, and inappropriate props will simply be checked and kept for you to pick up when you leave.
