If you take the shuttle you will be dropped off in the Palms Place Lobby, take the elevators up to the 6th Floor and you will find the pool. If you are coming from the Palms Hotel, take the SkyBridge to Palms Place, then take the elevators to the 6th floor and your set.

The pool party is located off-site from Defcon.  There will be a free shuttle running every 10 minutes between the Rio and Palms Place.

You must be 21 or older to attend!

Shuttle Information

There will be a continuously running shuttle between the Rio and Palms Place to get you to the party.  The shuttle will do pickup’s outside of the convention area, look for the Queercon Logo.  Shuttles will run every 10 minutes from 8:45pm until 1:45am.


In years past we have always tried to find a location within the Defcon area to host our party.  But over the years Queercon has grown and our parties have become too big to fit within the convention space at the Rio.  We decided to move the party off-site this year so that we could continue to throw the best party possible.  We know this is a change to what we have done in the past, we have always tried to keep our party within the Defcon area, but we just are not able to any more.
Vegas is a very difficult location and over the past few years regulations have gotten tighter around underage drinking and gaming.  In planning the party this year we tried to keep the party open to all ages, but hotel regulations for the size of party we are throwing just would not allow us to do it, so, unfortunately this year we are having to make the pool party a 21+ event.
While Queercon is the LGBT party of Defcon we are open to everyone.  So straight friends you are welcome too.
Yes,  we will have plenty of fully stocked bars. So come grab a drink
Yes! The pool will be open, so dont forget your swim suit.
