Fort Collins Comic Con
08_18_ComicCon_Square

Fort Collins Comic Con is TOMORROW!

Heads-up! If you haven't snagged your badge yet, it will be available on-site at Attendee Check-In at the Con!

Don't have your badge yet? There's still time!

ONLINE badge sales CLOSE at 9PM TONIGHT.

There WILL be badges available at the door!

As a reminder, you should tell your friends to snag their badges early as the price goes up at the door $5 for adult badges to $25. Kids badges are always $10 for geeks 6-12 years old and no cost for geeks 5-and-under (they still need a badge).

10 Things You Must Know

  1. Badges ARE available on-site: $25 for ages 13+, $10 for ages 6-12, and $0 for ages 5-and-under. Cash and Cards are accepted.
  2. Willow is one-way only EASTBOUND from College to Linden. There's a boatload of signage out to help you get to the Aztlan Center, and the City repainted the pedestrian walkway for us. Thank you, City of Fort Collins!
  3. If you can't park at the Aztlan Center, don't panic. Plan on having at least 2 backup parking options. The Dirt Lot at Odell is best reached by going from Willow -> Linden -> Buckingham. Closer options are the Elizabeth Hotel parking lot or the Civic Center Parking Lot on Laporte. Please do not park at the Discovery Museum, on the grass, etc... (you might get towed and that makes for a not-so-much-fun Con)
  4. Most of the fun stuff for young superheroes is happening from 9AM to 2PM.
  5. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. We will have some amazing food trucks on site:
    - Moontower Sliders (GF available)
    - Taco Stop (GF, DF, Vegan available) – Saturday Only
    - Kona Ice (GF, DF, Vegan)
    - Salty Dog
    - Totally ’80’s Pizza
    - Purple Cup Cafe
  6. Lost children will be brought to the INFO DESK at the FRONT ENTRANCE, guarded by Jedi Librarians. Parents: please take a few minutes when you arrive to write your name and phone number on the space provided on the back of your kid's badge.
  7. There are printed programs on-site to help you. Panel highlights are below as well as maps!
  8. Two games of Chipper's Lanes laser tag are included with every badge.
  9. An autograph and/or selfie with Robin Shelby is included with every badge.
  10. Show off your awesome cosplay skills at our Cosplay Catwalk or just sit back and watch! NO PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED! Held in Enterprise, Serenity, & Millennium Falcon Rooms on Saturday and Sunday
    • 5:40PM to 6:10PM Saturday with a post-event show by AgentDancers and A Vintage Future
    • 11:20AM to 11:50PM Sunday with a post-event show by Trash Cat

Attendee Tips and Tricks:

  • Remain kind, courteous, and most of all, have fun! Here are the official rules.
  • Weapons Check/Prop Weapons Policy: our cosplay policy has not changed (review it here). You MUST peacebond your prop weapons and receive a wristband before entering the Con (if you have prop weapons). Prop weapons must be inert, lightweight, dull, and incapable of harm. Weapons Check is adjacent to the front entrance to the Con.
  • Doors to the Con open at 9AM both days. The Con runs until 8PM both days.
  • Badges will be for sale at the door (the price of the 13+ badge goes up $5 to $25)
  • Parking will be kinda crazy. Plan on arriving early, being dropped off, or walking a little bit.
  • Lost children will be brought to the INFO DESK at the FRONT ENTRANCE, guarded by Jedi Librarians.
  • If you have children, it's a good idea to write your phone number on the bottom of their badge.
  • Will Call Badges and any badges not picked up from comic book stores will be available at Attendee Check-In at the front entrance to the Con. Lanyards are available at no cost (but please recycle them with us if you can!)
  • Volunteer Badges are BLUE, Staff Badges are PURPLE. If you need help, please seek us out. We are here to help you have a good con experience!
  • Vendor Hall Opens 10AM, Closes 6PM
  • Panels, Programming, and Games run from 9AM to 8PM.
  • Vendors, special events and Food Trucks are the only things you'll need money for. Everything else is included with your badge. The closest ATM is across the street and ran out quickly last year. Please plan to bring cash as needed as not all vendors have credit card capability.
  • WiFi and non-Verizon cell coverage are somewhat spotty within the venue.
  • Do not buy scalped tickets. Never purchase badges for more than face value: $20/25 for adults, $10 for 6-12, $0 for 5 and under.
  • Bring water, snacks, and wear sunscreen (we have a very limited supply meant for our volunteers who may burst into flame without it).
  • Code4 Security Services will be present. They report to the Con Staff and are there for everyone's safety. If you are a parent dropping your children off and do not have a badge yourself, they WILL actively stop you from entering the Con. Please ask someone at the check-in tables if you need us to make an announcement (yes, this has happened before).
