Panels should reflect an aspect of the fandoms we represent. GalaxyCon Louisville will not approve panels if we feel the material is not appropriate for our convention. 4.

We do not allow “Truth or Dare” type panels or "Ask a Character" events due to the nature of the questions. 5. Please be flexible on availability.
