Youmacon 2016 Registration Info

Planning on attending this year's Youmacon? Here's what you need to know about convention registration. Remember, attendees traveling from outside the United States are now required to bring a passport or enhanced drivers' license to enter the country.

Parental Consent

If you are under the age of 18 you'll need to print out our Parental Consent Form and have it filled out by the time you attend the con! This form can be found here.

Three Types of Badges:

A Three-Day Badge (weekend) will get you into all general events for the entirety of this year's convention. Three-day badges are available for purchase both online and at-the-door.

A One-Day Badge (Friday, Saturday, or Sunday) will get you into all general events for the day purchased. One-Day badges may only be purchased at-the-door.

A Platinum Badge has all of the benefits of a Three-Day, with these extra perks:

  • Priority positioning for the first 20 minutes in all autograph lines
  • Priority positioning for Main Events
  • A 2016 Youmacon T-Shirt
  • Admittance into either the Maid Cafe or Charity Ball
  • Entrance into one (1) video game tournament
  • The Dealers' Room will be open an hour early each day for Platinum Attendees

Platinum badges are limited to 500 for the event, and are only available for purchase online.
