Due to the cancellation of Sakura-Con 2020, we will be automatically transferring all Active Memberships to 2022.

If you pre-registered for Sakura-Con 2020, your registration has been transferred to 2022 and you will receive an email confirmation in the spring with updated Registration dates and badge pickup requirements/instructions. To view our Covid-19 protocols for 2022, please visit http://sakuracon.org/covid-19-safety/. To confirm your Active membership status for 2022, please visit: https://www.joinit.org/o/anceasakura-con

Important Membership Registration Details

Memberships not Tickets

We are a 501c3 nonprofit membership organization that is 100% volunteer run (even our board of directors do not get paid). That means to attend Sakura-Con, you must purchase a membership.

If you have additional questions, please see our FAQ page and our full Membership Policies.

Minors must Attend with an Adult

If you are attending the convention and under the age of 18, you are required to have an attending adult who is also a registered member.

We will not make exceptions to this rule. If your parent or legal guardian does not wish to attend, they must authorize another adult to be your attending adult. They can fill out and sign a Parental Permission Form designating another adult attendee as an at-con guardian which you can hand to us in Registration at the convention.

No Mailed Badges

We do not mail out membership credentials or badges. You receipt, money order receipt or canceled check is your proof of purchase. You will receive an email from JoinIt, our membership management system.

Badge pick up for members attending Sakura-Con will be at Sakura-Con during the event (see details below).

How do I know if I registered?

Valid Government Issued ID

Valid, government-issued photo identification is required for all adults, 18 and over when badges are picked up at Sakura-Con. There will be no exceptions. This does not include school IDs.

Refund Policy

Memberships cannot be transferred or sold. All membership purchases are non-refundable. If you have any questions about this policy, please contact registration@sakuracon.org
