FANDOMCON reserves the right to reject any costume at any time and for any reason. For the avoidance of doubt, the absence of clothing or a costume is not itself a costume and nudity is not allowed at any FANDOMCON Event. All costumed attendees are required to have opaque fabric of some type covering the appropriate areas of the body; opaque bodysuits that simulate nudity are not allowed. Anyone wearing a costume that is too revealing in the sole judgment of FANDOMCON will be asked to leave the event.
No costume required! All are welcome! Many of our attendees enjoy wearing costumes and spend a lot of time, effort, and money creating their costumes (“cosplay”). However, it is not a requirement to wear a costume to attend FANDOMCON. Many families coming with kids may find that the younger ones really like to come in costume, but everyone should do what works for them. If you get to the show and feel inspired to take on an alter-ego, you’ll find lots of exhibitors selling wigs, hats, props, and fun accessories.
Get ready for the Cosplay Red Carpet. No registration, no competition, no stress. This is your chance to show off your amazing cosplay to fans and photographers and get your free Cosplay Red Carpet photo from a professional photographer. Check the schedule closer to the show for details.
Cosplayers, assemble. Find everything you love about cosplay, including the Cosplay Red Carpet, Cosplay photo ops, Cosplay Meetup, Cosplay Contest and Contest Divisions, and so much more.

FANDOMCON is a fully accessible event and we welcome people of All abilities. You can read more about our ADA Accommodations here

All minors under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent and/or legal guardian.
We love and adore pets, but please leave them at home.
The Convention Center does not allow outside food or drink. No outside orders (doordash, ubereats, etc. etc.) are allowed to the Convention Center.

We have a duty to make sure that everyone who attends our show is safe and happy, so please review the prop and weapons policy to avoid disappointment.

Let’s have fun and be safe.

We do our best to avoid cancellations, we promise! However, if they do occur, as they have at other shows in the past, we will fully refund any autograph and photo op tickets for that celebrity. We do not refund admission tickets when guests cancel.

We hear all the time, “I was only coming for this one guest.”

We’re not a one guest event, same as other shows and if you are really only coming for one guest, please understand in advance that your guest may cancel and that there is no refund on admission.

We support the guests’ ability to take film gigs and further their careers beyond fan events.

We also strive to replace guests when they cancel with relevant alternatives, to the best of our ability and their availability.

Absolutely – You can purchase a ticket for as many people as you’d like! However, if the person you purchased a ticket for is over the age of 16, you must transfer the ticket to them prior to arriving at the event.

Gather your wizards, descendants, padawans, and little superheroes! Children aged Six (6) and under go free to FandomCon when accompanied at all times by an adult ticket holder – so you can bring the whole family along to enjoy the show, explore all areas and make some memories together. Children six and under require their own ticket, and all attendees over the age of six require a standard ticket.

*Every kid attending still needs a ticket and all kids tickets must be purchased with an adult ticket.

*Up to 2 children per every adult

Any tickets purchased for the 2024 event are subject to normal, non-refundable ticket provisions unless the event is postponed or rescheduled. In the event FandomCon 2024 is rescheduled, all tickets will automatically roll-over to the revised dates, unless specified differently at the time of sale.
