A: At an event like Banzaicon it’s important to eat and drink to keep one's energy up. With our busy schedule it’s easy to forget, but thankfully our cafe has a tempting selection of food, drinks and snacks to keep you both happy and energized without spending too much money.

If you want to cosplay at Banzaicon, but don’t want to travel in your costume, we have wardrobes available with lots of space, privacy and (limited) mirrors. There are men’s, women’s and gender neutral wardrobes. Do NOT use any bathrooms, and especially NOT the handicap toilet to change.

Banzaicon encourages all participants to NOT carry anything that can be confused with weapons visible outside the convention. Weapons meaning firearms, bows, blades, polearms and clubs. Please transport them by packing them in bags or sacks. This is to ensure the general public will not be alarmed.
