Charity – Charity Fastpass

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, 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.
  • Access to priority access lines at Registration and Autographs throughout their individual hours of operation.
  • 30 minute priority admittance to the Exhibit Hall (Dealers & Artist Alley). Each day when the Exhibit Hall opens, all Charity FastPass holders will enjoy a half hour of private access to browse and shop at their leisure before the room is opened to the public.
  • Priority admittance to Concerts, the J-Fashion Show, the Cosplay Contest, and the Masquerade Ball.

    When seating/entry is allowed for any of the above events, FastPass holders will be given priority entry inside to select their seats. Once FastPass holders have been granted entry, staff will begin to admit general attendees, but continue to give FastPass holders priority admittance where applicable.

    Regardless of the possession of a FastPass, if attendees do not follow the rules set for events, such as not being in dress code for the Masquerade, they will not be allowed inside.

    To fully benefit from these perks, we recommend you check into the FastPass line at least 30 minutes before the event begins.

The Charity FastPass is available for purchase when you pre-register for A-Kon or when you purchase your membership onsite. Quantities are limited so don’t miss out! Be sure to get your Charity FastPass as soon as you can!
