Parties

All parties will be in the Rye Wing of the hotel on either the 4th floor or the 1st floor. The Con Suite will be on the 4th floor in the Sunnyside Suite. The 2nd and 3rd floors, as well as all floors in the Westchester Wing are quiet floors.  All parties MUST be held only on the designated active (party) floors. Any parties in other areas will be closed down.

There are both Junior and Luxury Suites available for parties in the Westchester Wing, as well as connecting rooms. If you are interested in booking a Suite, please contact us at hotel@2016.lunacon.org for details and pricing.

Parties in a hotel room are considered the responsibility of the person who rented the room. Thus, a person throwing a party in his or her hotel room has the right to eject any person from his or her party if he or she deems that the person is behaving inappropriately. Party hosts are responsible for adhering to convention policies, hotel rules, and local, state, and federal laws.

Please note that alcoholic beverages may not be served at open parties. Open parties serving alcohol will be closed down.

All parties MUST register with the Convention, regardless of whether they are open or closed.
 
Parties posting flyers or other advertisements around the convention will be treated as open parties and subject to the alcohol restriction.

 

Party Planning Tips

Conventions are fantastic places to hold a geek-friendly party. A lot of the stress and effort of normal party planning (like getting people in the building in the first place, or having a nearby source of ice!) is handled magically by the convention or the hotel, so you can focus on the important details of making your room-based gathering fun, safe, and (if appropriate) well-targeted to your theme or club or con.

If you're interested in running a room party, Conrunner.net's page on How To Host A Convention Party may provide some insights to help you to get your soirée on track to give other members a really great time. Check back here as we find similarly helpful guides to add to this.

Keep in mind that not all suggestions are applicable to Lunacon, and we urge you to look up the rules of our Convention and hotel to avoid any party planning conflicts between your ideas and our reality (more than one convention has had its life cut off or severely threatened, for instance, by public parties openly serving alcoholic beverages or in some cases charging for drinks). Please use discretion, and if you have questions you can direct them to parties@2016.lunacon.org.
