A glimpse into what you can expect at StokerCon!

Our Updated Covid Policy

As previously published, the deadline for a full refund of a cancelled StokerCon 2022 registration is Monday, March 28, 2022. However, due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the new deadline to receive a full refund is April 15, 2022. After April 15th, cancellations will generally be non-refundable. Should someone need to cancel after the deadline for reasons beyond their control (injury, illness including positive COVID tests, death in the family), please contact the convention chairs at with an explanation and any relevant proof of inability at attend. Cases will be considered individually.

Regarding our COVID Policy, attendees will still be required to show proof of vaccination. The State of Colorado and the City of Denver no longer have mask mandates for either outdoor or indoor events. Due to these changes, StokerCon 2022 will not require masks during the convention. However, we strongly recommend wearing masks as a way to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

The HWA reserves the right to modify its COVID Policy without advanced notice.
