BronyCon &Up programming is reserved for attendees 21 years of age and older. &Up programming is to be held in convention space dubbed “Hall of Chaos” in the Hilton Inner Harbor. As in previous years, the Baltimore Convention Center will remain an all-ages space.
Programming will include a level of content typical of what may be encountered at a comedy club or your average neighborhood bar. All content provided for BronyCon &Up events must be free of nudity, excessive violence and gore, and pornographic material. All panelists involved in &Up events must also be 21 years of age and older.
In order to attend an &Up event, you must be wearing your BronyCon badge as well as provide a valid state or government issued photo ID with a birthdate. This means a state ID, driver’s license, passport, or military license. Non-US equivalents are also acceptable. You must keep your badge and ID on you at all times while attending &Up panels and must provide them if requested. You will need to have both items checked again if you exit and then re-enter the programming space. No one younger than 21 will be allowed entry, even if accompanied by a parent or guardian who is of age.
No outside food or drink will be allowed in the programming space, except for clear water bottles. Anyone found with outside beverages will be escorted out of the room. For the convenience of attendees, there will be a cash bar in the programming space. Any visibly intoxicated person will be turned away at the door or escorted out of the room.
All BronyCon staff who enter the room must also be 21 years of age or older, both those on shift and those off shift. If a BronyCon staff member who is under 21 must enter the space, they must have a valid emergency reason that cannot be completed by another nearby party.
