Tired of fighting your way through registration?

Regardless of how much fun Dragon*Con is, nobody likes to stand in line. So last year we added vendors selling adult beverages to make the wait not so painful and quite possibly more enjoyable. But this year we have gone a step further and revamped our registration system.

At long last, picking up your badge will be a breeze! I know this is hard to believe but it is true. For those of you who have pre-registered click here for more info. For those who want to purchase your memberships on site click here.

 Don’t forget to bring your pre-registration postcard to the show!  

The Progress Report is now online!

Which workshop is right for you?

This year Dragon*Con has a wide variety of spectacular workshops designed to offer something for everyone! If you are stressed out Erin Gray can teach you how to relax with tai chi. If a ghost is keeping you up at night and the Ghost Busters are out of your price range, Benjamin Radford can show you how to investigate those pushy phantasms the scientific way. If that manuscript has been sitting on the shelf gathering dust because you are just not sure it is ready to publish then Jody Lynn Nye, A.C. Crispin, Michael Stackpole, or Aaron Alston may be able to help. If you want to learn an alternate form of fitness or perfect your budding belly dancing skills, Phoenicia can help. By the way folks, this one is FREE! Or if you can’t seem to clear your mind enough to decide which workshop is the one for you, then Virginia Hey can help you sort that out with meditation. No matter which workshop you choose you won’t be disappointed.

Check out our workshops to make your choice.

Please remember that there will be times that some of the convention hotels will be closed to the public. When this occurs you will need your badge to enter (We know you never go anywhere at Dragon*Con without it, but this is just a reminder.Smile!!!)
