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 Form

Unattended minors 18 and under must have our Parental Consent form filled out by their legal guardians to be allowed to attend Youmacon.

Where to pick up Badges:

Badges can be picked up at Registration inside the Huntington Place – 2nd Floor – Wayne Hall D

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. Saturday badges are available online.  Friday and Sunday may only be purchased at-the-door.

  • Youmacon Cloth bag
  • Your choice of Ticket for Cosplay Formal or Maid Cafe
  • Special VIP Lanyard
  • Priority Access to Designated Special Events
  • Priority Access to Autograph Sessions with Guests
  • Early Access to Marketplace (Dealer’s Hall)

At-the-door Registration

The at the door registration prices will be as follows:

  • Three Day: $75
  • Friday $40
  • Saturday: $50
  • Sunday: $30

For those of you new to Youmacon we would like to inform you it is best to arrive early for the convention. Though we are always working on making registration as quick and painless as possible; lines do get long. Please take this into consideration when planning your arrival time. PLEASE SIGN YOUR BADGE! Signing a badge makes it easier to locate in the event that a badge is lost or misplaced. Be advised that Youmacon does NOT offer badge replacements.

At the door registration: We accept Cash and Card

Credit Sales

  • Credit sales will be available for all badge types over the course of the event.
  • Credit sales are subjected to additional fees.
  • Credit sales and cash sales share the same line for registration.

*Lines will be cut off prior to closing in order to maintain department hours. Line cut off is dependent on the amount of traffic near the time of closing. Attendees may continue to stand in line if they choose, until the closing time, as more will be allowed to enter if the line, before the cut off, is handled before closing time.

All Sales Are Final

Youmacon does not offer refunds for badges. Any replacement badges will need to be purchased at full price.
