A Note about Memberships

We don’t sell “admissions”, “tickets” or “badges”. We are a nonprofit, 100% volunteer run, members only organization. Our event is members only. When you purchase your membership you become part of the Asia-Northwest Cultural Education Association, and join us in supporting our State and Federal 501c3 nonprofit mission to educate and celebrate Asian culture through popular media and arts! Attending the event is a primary benefit of becoming a member, however, it’s not all.

In addition to attending Sakura-Con, your membership comes with other benefits and an ongoing invitation to be involved in our mission. Other benefits examples include automatic inclusion in our Members Only mailing list, Members Newsletters, discounts we negotiate year round for members, giveaways, discounted special events, and more as we can secure them. You are also assured that at Sakura-Con, as members, you will not be charged for programming such as concerts, theaters or even guest autographs! Finally, General Members can nominate in our elections, if they so desire. In this way, Sakura-Con is truly always “by fans and for fans” along with our nonprofit mission.

Please read the rest of this FAQ, our Member Policies, and, if you are a minor or bringing minors to the convention, our Minors’ Policy.

If you have any further questions, or would like more information or clarification on anything, please email Registration and we would be happy to assist you!

We look forward to seeing you at the convention!
