All those who attend, staff, vend at, and present at PantheaCon  acknowledge their acceptance of our policy on Diversity and Consent found HERE

We thank and acknowledge Hexenfest for our use of this policy statement.

UPDATE (9.17.19) We want people to know how we are applying our Diversity policy in both our desire to be Diverse and how we are choosing the presenters who use our community platform. May the Gods protect our Craft and our Community.

An expanded programming team is reviewing new and past presenters for their self-described bios, online presence, and body of work. We are also looking at and for endorsements of presenters from well-regarded community members with strong stances on social justice, LGBTQ rights/issues, and cultural appropriateness. In addition, we have another team who are Programming Advisors for Diversity. We will be sending them a preview of the tentative list of events to be sure we have not missed anything. These teams are in place to avoid bigoted or cultural  appropriation workshops. We welcome and will be accepting diversity events. [A more full description of our process and policy should be available when I get over this cold. GT]

Doubletree Hotel Rooms:  Room rates are $146 a night. Late in the fall one or two blocks of rooms will open for these rooms in high demand. They typically are all snapped up in 5 minutes.

Parking for the event is $13 a day. Parking can be scarce, especially at the height of the con. Please consider taking public transit.

 Overflow hotels – See the internet and the Hotel and Lodging part of the website for these hotels. Our main overflow hotel is the Fairfield Inn San Jose Airport. (They have free parking and free breakfast with nearby inexpensive restaurants.) It is only a few blocks away from the Doubletree.
