Minicon 41

Minicon 41 is almost here, we are no longer accepting pre-registrations. Thanks to everyone who got their registrations in early!

If you gave us your email address, you should've received a registration confirmation via email by now. Those who didn't provide email addresses will likely receive a confirmation postcard.

Not sure if you're registered? Want to see who else will be at Minicon 41? Check out the list of Minicon 41 members.

You can still purchase Minicon 41 memberships at the door at Minicon 41 for $55 for the weekend ($15 for children 6-12, children 6 and under get in free).

This year we will have some single day memberships available at Registration on Friday and Saturday. A membership for Friday will cost $25 and is good from whenver you register on Friday until 10 a.m. Saturday. A membership for Saturday will cost $35 and is good from whenever you purchase it on Saturday until 10 a.m. Sunday.

We can not guarantee that we will have day memberships at any future Minicons, so your best bet if you think you might want to attend some or all of Minicon 42 is to register for a full membership (best prices will be available at Minicon 41).

Registration Hours:
Thursday: 5 p.m. - 10 p.m.
Friday: Noon - 10 p.m.
Saturday: 9 a.m. - 8 p.m.

Registration Location:
On Thursday, Registration will be near the coat room on the 2nd floor outside of the ballroom. On Friday and Saturday, Registration will be in the atrium on the first floor in the short/north tower.

Those who purchased tickets for $10 for the Harlan Ellison event on Thursday can purchase Minicon 41 memberships for $45 on Thursday night (those who already have Minicon 41 memberships get in free to the Thursday event). Basically they can apply that $10 ticket price to the price of a Minicon membership.

You can contact the Registration department at

Beth Friedman is in charge of pre-con registration; Carol Kennedy is in charge of at-the-con registration.

[Neo note: Registration is where you pick up your badge and program book and other useful stuff and check in if you're pre-registered; this is also where you go if you need to purchase a membership or convert a supporting membership. If you'd like to volunteer to help at the convention, stop by the nearby Volunteers table.]
