Is FreeCon In-Person or Online this year?
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, FreeCon will be held across multiple online platforms this year. Discord will be the main platform: it requires an account, and a link will be posted on our social media and website closer to the convention. Other events will take place on YouTube and Twitch. These platforms do not require accounts to participate.
What do I do when I arrive at FreeCon?
FreeCon’s Discord server will be free to join closer to the convention. However, you will not have full access to the server until the day of the convention. Those who Pre-Register will gain access to the server 2 hours early, at 4:00 PM on Friday, March 12. Those who have not pre-registered will gain full access to the server at 6:00 PM. We ask that you read our server rules and agree to follow them. We also have a variety of roles for you to select from.
To participate in events held on Twitch and YouTube, simply follow the links that will be made available on our Full Schedule here on the website.
