ToshoCON will be held 4-9 pm on Friday, September 15, 2023 and 3-9 pm on Saturday, September 16, 2023, at the County Library’s Viridian Event Center (8020 S 1825 W, West Jordan).

ToshoCON is intended for teens ages 12-19. Adults unaccompanied by a teen may be asked to leave to maintain a safe space for teens.

ToshoCON activities are geared toward ages 12–19. Due to unprecedented attendance in 2021, new capacity guidelines were implemented in 2022 to accommodate interested teens attending and ensure building fire code compliance.

For this reason we ask that caring parents and families drop off attending teens and pick them up when they are done. Alternatively, you may opt to spend all or part of the day at the West Jordan branch on the other side of the building. However, we always leave these decisions in the hands of caring parents and family.

Please be assured that a safe convention environment is maintained through peace bonding upon entry and all rooms and conventions spaces are monitored by library staff.

We have a limited number of “alumni” opportunities for past ToshoCON patrons who are now over 19 years old. All volunteers must submit an application, pass a background check and follow the County Library’s volunteer guidelines. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us here.

There will be food truck vendors in addition to teen vendors who will sell food. However, no additional snacks will be provided at ToshoCON. Attendees are welcome to bring snacks and water bottles. There will also be designated drop-off points for food deliveries via DoorDash, Grubhub etc.

Tickets are not required to attend ToshoCON. We do ask that you RSVP so we know you are coming. RSVP’s open July 1, 2023.

The County Library is committed to providing equal access and opportunity, and we strive to create inclusive atmospheres, programs, and spaces for the diverse needs of the community. Salt Lake County’s ADA policy is available online.

Quiet spaces and courtesy phones are available in the library.

ToshoCON has a zero bullying tolerance.

No. ToshoCON has a zero bullying tolerance.

Bullying is defined as unwanted, aggressive behavior that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. (Source: This includes verbal bullying—teasing, name-calling or taunting; social bullying—leaving someone out on purpose; and physical bullying—hitting, kicking, punching, spitting, tripping, or making rude hand gestures.

You are welcome to stay the whole time for panels, crafts, mingling, vendors etc. However, you can come and go as you please. It’s also a good idea if you leave to let someone at the Con know where you are going and who you are with for safety reasons.

No. You are welcome to come in whatever clothing you are comfortable in. All attendees are required to adhere to public general clothing guidelines.

Naked is not allowed; any illusion to nudity is strictly prohibited.

All attendees must have at least 60% of both sides of their upper body covered.

Dramatically plunging necklines, ‘underboob’, ‘sideboob’, and bare chests are NOT allowed.

All attendees must wear, at minimum, shorts or a skirt that completely covers the behind (no cheeks hanging out).

With regards to see-through clothing, attendees must still wear the minimum requirement of coverage underneath. If we can see through your clothes to your body parts, it is considered nudity.

Gender bending/crossplay is allowed, however open chest binding is not allowed.

Shoes, boots, or slippers are required (socks are not considered foot covering).

Due to privacy concerns, we do not record or stream ToshoCON.

We’ll check all cosplays upon entry to ensure props are easily recognized as props and not weapons. Real weapons (knives, swords, etc.) are best left at home.

Most of ToshoCON is held indoors, though some portions may be held outside. Inclement weather won’t impact the event. Should adverse weather occur, we will abide by local authority recommendations to ensure safety for all attendees.
