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?

If you think you have already registered, please go here and enter your email address: https://www.joinit.org/o/anceasakura-con/members#. If you think you have registered but are having issues logging in, or if you were registered by someone else, please contact Registration@sakuracon.org and we are happy to help!

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 and Transfer 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

Check the Membership Policies

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

All Registered Members Agree to Electronic Notification

This means you agree to check the website for member-related news and we will use your provided email to send member related updates (you may unsubscribe if you prefer to check the website only).

Membership Rates

Registered Members are entitled to attend all three days of Sakura-Con. Sakura-Con has no plans to issue any pro-rated day memberships for 2023.

Children age 6-12 receive a 50% membership rate discount with their family; children age 5 and under receive a complimentary membership with their family.

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.
