What else can I do in the area?

Ticonderoga and the area nearby has a lot to recommend it!

Please look at the local area information heading on this website, especially at the “attractions and entertainment” and “restaurants and bars” sections.

Would you like to check out the downtown art gallery, or how about a tour of Fort Ticonderoga? The area is rich with history, especially from the French and Indian war, the Revolutionary War, and the War of 1812.

Did you know that the original USS Enterprise (which American Forces under Colonel Benedict Arnold “liberated” from the British in 1775) lies at the bottom of Lake Champlain near Fort Ticonderoga? She had a short but glorious history with the brand-new United States Navy.

Ticonderoga abounds with outdoor activities, including boating and other activities on Lake George and Lake Champlain, hiking trails to see the natural beauty of the Adirondacks, and more. Check out Ticonderoga for yourself .

Can I bring my pet (dog/cat/parrot/etc) with me?

Trekonderoga is a set tour event that embraces a wide range of sci-fi and pop culture. Although we have a focus on the nostalgic, you will see a variety of pop culture represented.

Pets are not allowed in the Trekonderoga venues. Registered working animals, e.g. for the blind or otherwise handicapped, PTSD dogs, and so on, however, are allowed as required by law.

Check our Accommodations Page (menu above) for a list of pet friendly locations.

Are cosplayers permitted/encouraged? If so, is there a “no touching” policy to safeguard cosplayers and, if so, how will it be enforced? Is there a changing area for cosplayers?

Cosplay costumes and hall costumes are permitted, however, cosplay and larp action on set and in all other indoor event spaces is forbidden. Cosplayers must not be noisy or disruptive. Cosplay weapons may not be drawn. Read the section on weapons below.

Sorry, there is no place for cosplayers to change on set nor is there a green room at the High School. The best place cosplayers could don the costume would be at their hotel or off premises.

Trekonderoga supports and enforces a “no touching” policy. Cosplayers are encouraged to report any unwanted behavior to security who will notify police if necessary. Anyone behaving inappropriately will be escorted off-site, and will not be permitted back in, with no refund, and will be banned from future events. Police will be called if illegal activity occurs. The Ticonderoga police, the Essex County Sheriff, and NY state Police are informed of and will respond to the event in Ticonderoga.
