  • Kid-in-tow or adult-in-tow memberships are free. The "in-tow" person must be with a registered adult at all times. An example of adult-in-tow would be the person assisting a con-goer who is in a wheelchair (or vice versa).
  • Arisia's Kid's program, known as Fast Track, is designed as a con-within-a-con for kids in the 6-12 age range. We offer a wide variety of program items, including crafts, costuming, magic shows, science, song, discussions, demonstrations, storytelling, and games. For more information, make suggestions for program items or volunteer to help, contact us at FastTrack.
  • Childcare is for kids between 2 and 6 years old. We provide the childcare so you can enjoy the convention.
  • Full membership is for everyone not listed above.
  • Information about discounts.

Other registration information:

  • Or attend Arisia free! If you work 12 hours at the convention, you will earn a free membership to next year's convention. Setup on Thursday evening and tear-down on Sunday evening and Monday count as double, so you can earn a membership without missing any of the con. For more information, contact us. You may not transfer an earned membership.
  • We do not issue refunds, but you can transfer your membership to another person, or you can roll over your membership to the following year, if the Con Chair okays the rollover.
  • Need to transfer your membership? Can't make it to Arisia, but don't want your membership to go to waste? You can sell or transfer your membership to someone else. The seller (that's you) just needs to send email to Registration saying who you're transferring it to - give all the information you would for a normal registration (name, mailing address, email address, badge name) and we'll do the transfer.
