Security in LA

This Article Is About DragCon LA 2019

Safety is and always has been a top priority at DragCon. At DragCon LA all attendees will need to go through security before entering the Los Angeles Convention South Hall. This includes a bag check and passing through a metal detector. We recommend that you pack light, and don’t wear any metal, in order for security to move quickly and efficiently. If you leave the Convention Center, you will be required to go through security before re-entering. 

All attendees must wear their DragCon wristband at all times during the weekend.
