Disclaimers for registration tiers

* Note for Sponsor, Supersponsor, and Ultrasponsor: A portion of this membership constitutesa donation to Anthrocon which, by law, is not tax-deductible and is not refundable if your registration is canceled. For more information, please see our refund policy.

** Note for Advance Hotel Reservations: The higher demand hotels (such as the Westin, Courtyard and the Drury) will have a number of rooms set aside for the general reservation opening. This is done to ensure that no hotel sells out completely before the general opening and to give all attendees a chance to reserve a room in the higher demand hotels. You may see a hotel sell out during the advanced reservation period but once again have rooms available during general reservations. For more information about available hotels, see our hotels page.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • A COVID-19 policy is in effect for Anthrocon 2023, which is mandatory for all Anthrocon attendees to abide by. For the full policy, please visit the 2023 COVID-19 Policy page.

  • For all attendees aged 18 years and older, we require a government-issued photo ID so that we can make sure nobody other than you is trying to pick up your badge or register in your name. Anthrocon accepts the following as a single-form ID: USA or Canada Driver's License, USA or Canada State ID, USA Military ID, or a Passport.

    For minor attendees aged 13-17 years old, we prefer to have a government-issued photo ID as well. However, we do understand that not every minor (especially the younger ones) will have an ID. If you do not have any of the above, we still need something with your photo on it that will confirm your identity and your date of birth.Contact the Registration department at [emailprotected] [emailprotected]if you are unsure or need assistance in determining alternate forms of acceptable ID.

  • There are multiple options for both adults and minors to get a state-issued photo ID. Please ensure that you have a valid form of ID to get your registration badge before the convention; if you need help, consult your state or province’s government services to see what options are available.

  • Absolutely! All you need to do is click on the link that was emailed to you with your registration confirmation. It will take you to your registration summary, and you need only click "Sponsor" or "Supersponsor" at the top and then "Update My Info" at the bottom.

  • If a person is unable to stand in line, for whatever reason, you are welcome to move to the front of the line. If you are unsure or uncomfortable about just doing that, you are welcome to find a staff member and we will escort you to the front of the line.

  • We understand that circumstances may arise that prevent you from attending our convention. Requests for refunds must be received before the close of pre-registration. Requests for rollovers must be received before the Monday prior to the convention. For more information please visit ourrefund policy page.

  • If your child is between the ages of 13 to 17, they do not require accompaniment within the convention space as long as they have a valid Minor badge (which requires the completion of a Minor Consent form). If you wish to accompany them, you will need to purchase a registration badge for yourself.

    Please note that children 12 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times, whether they purchase a PUP badge or not. Pup badges include the price for the child only. Membership for the parent/guardian will need to be purchased separately.
