Weekend Attendee Registration: What you get…

Weekend Registration for CONfab Chicago includes all programming and activities over the entire convention. Activities start on Thursday evening, and programming runs from Friday morning until Sunday evening. You get access to everything on the schedule, including the Meet & Greet, Fandom Lounge, Panels, Group Discussions, Workshops, Vid Show, and all onsite Activities and Special Events, not to mention the chance to be with some of your best buds from the internet for an amazing time. It’s an awesome chance to meet new people, hang with old friends, and chat about your favorite shows/books/movies/music/sports/comics…etc. 

Single/2 Day Attendee Registration

Only available to attend for one or two days? We’ve got you covered! A limited amount of day passes are available (pricing will be announced at a later date). This ticket will give you access to all of the Panels, Group Discussions, and Workshops being offered that day, access to the Fandom Lounge, and any other onsite Activities and Special Events (such as the dance on Saturday) scheduled that afternoon/evening. Day passes can be purchased during the convention at the registration table.

Donate to CONfabulation

Can’t come to the con but want to support the convention anyway? Any amount helps! Running a convention is expensive; our staff are all unpaid volunteers, so 100% of every ticket sold and every donation goes towards convention costs as well as scholarship registrations so more people can enjoy our events. You can make a donation of any amount via PayPal, and please know we appreciate you so much.
