Registration for 2020 coming soon!

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 How to Register and 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 and you will not receive a receipt from ANCEA/Sakura-Con. Your PayPal receipt, money order receipt or canceled check is your proof of purchase.

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

Don’t Register Until you can PayPal or Print

Please do not start your membership registration until you are either ready to pay immediately via PayPal, or to print your membership registration for mailing with your payment. If you do not pay immediately through PayPal or print off your registration (or save as a PDF to print later), you will have to start the process over.

How do I know if I registered?

If you think you have already registered, please check the Membership Confirmation Page before trying to re-register. If you still think you are registered and the tool is not finding your registration, please email Registration and we will verify if you are registered or not.

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.

Check the Membership Policies

Memberships are subject to acceptance and adherence to ANCEA/Sakura-Con Policies.

All Registered Members Agree to Electronic Notification

Military and their dependents are eligible for $5 off a membership but will be asked to provide military ID upon badge pickup at the convention.

Memberships are subject to acceptance and adherence to ANCEA/Sakura-Con Policies.
