A-Kon Charity - Charity Fastpass
Here are some quick links to help you navigate to the information you are looking for.
If you are looking to get the most out of the convention and donate to a great cause, the Charity FastPass is the option for you. In exchange for your donation of $30, you will get a special FastPass badge with custom artwork, as well as, a special FastPass lane to check in at registration and early access to some of our biggest events.
Here's a quick list of what you get when you purchase the Charity FastPass:
- A limited issue Charity FastPass badge with custom artwork by Finni Chang
- Access to the shorter line at Registration.
When you arrive, go to the special Charity FastPass line at Registration and you will be able to get your admission badge, pre-reg packet, and charity FastPass all at the same time. Be sure to bring a valid photo ID!
- 15 minute early line admittance for Autographs.
To use this perk, you must arrive and line up in the separate line for FastPass attendees 15 minutes before the session starts. The FastPass line will then close to new arrivals, and the FastPass holders will get their autographs before everyone else.
- Priority admittance to the Masquerade Ball.
There will be a separate admission line for FastPass holders to get priority dress check and entry into the room at all points throughout the event. The Masquerade FastPass line will be there all evening, so if you leave the room and come back, you will be able to get in without standing in the big line. If the room hits capacity, then the FastPass holders will get priority to be let in as people leave. Regardless of the possession of a FastPass, if you don’t meet the Masquerade dress code, you will not be allowed inside.
- Artist Alley 30 minute early admittance.
FastPass holders will be permitted to enter Artist’s Alley at 9:30am each day. Artist Alley opens for general attendees at 10:00am.
- Dealer’s Room 30 minute early admittance.
FastPass holders will be permitted to enter the Dealer’s Room at 10:00am each day. Dealers will be opened for general attendees at 10:30am.
- Priority admittance to the events listed below. at these events there will be a separate admission line for FastPass holders that will get priority entry into the room during the entire event. FastPass Holders will always be allowed inside first to find their spots, and once that line has been cleared, staff will begin letting others in regardless of it has been 30 minutes or not.
