Pre-registration price schedule

Pre-registration is like will call at the theatre or stadium: there is a separate, (theoretically) faster line for claiming your badge. We do not mail or email badges. We may offer will-call on the Thursday before, and we will release details about that as we approach Ohayocon weekend. The pre-reg price for the Weekend Badge is set to this schedule:

Dates (2019-20) Price*
When available – Sept. 19, 2019 $45
Sept. 20 – Oct. 19, 2019 $50
Oct. 20 – Nov. 19, 2019 $55
Nov. 20, 2019 – Jan. 5, 2020 $60
Jan. 6-9, 2020 Unavailable
Jan. 10-12, 2020 $70 at the door, cash only

* Prices shown do not include a $2.50 per badge service fee. There is no fee for paying cash at the door. Why is there a fee?

Age and ID verification

Ohayocon is geared toward a 14+ audience with some late-night sprinklings of 18+ and 21+ restricted events. Attendees under 13 must be supervised by a parent or legal guardian at all times. Up to three children under 13 are admitted for free with a paid admission.

If you pre-register, the name you register to your badge must match your ID, though you can write any name (or no name at all) on the badge. This is to ensure you are the only person who can claim your badge. We will otherwise only use the name you registered to your badge while discussing your purchase with you. The policies regarding acceptable ID for verification of identity and age are available here.

Group discount

Groups of 10 or more are eligible for a $5-per-badge pre-order discount. This saves you double what you would pay in service fees. Simply pre-order all of your badges in the same transaction and the system will automatically apply the discount. If you have any questions, feel free to send us a message.

Refunds and transfers

Badges are non-refundable and only good for the show they’re purchased for. We will offer a refund if the issue is our fault. You may transfer your badge to another person until the last day of pre-registration by logging into your account dashboard on the registration site.
