However, we do offer PUP badges for those who wish to get a convention badge for their 12 & under child for a minimal $5 fee. We also offer PUP/Sponsor and PUP/Supersponsor badges. Purchase of these badges is not required.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What sort of ID do I need? For all attendees aged 18 years and older we require 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 if you are unsure or need assistance in determining alternate forms of acceptable ID.

Can I upgrade my membership after I've paid for it? 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.

I have paid for my membership but cannot attend. Can I get a refund? Requests for refunds must be received before the close of pre-registration. For more information please visit our refund policy page.
