How to Pre-Register for WisCon

  • The first, and easiest, is to complete the online registration form. (which, when online registration is live, you will find at the top of the page). If you’re not already registered with WisCon, you’ll need to create your account before you register. Once you’ve completed the registration process, you can pay via PayPal or print out your registration receipt and mail it and your check to the address on the receipt.
  • If you prefer not to register online, you can download and print a copy of the registration form and pay via check. The registration form contains complete information, including the mailing address.  When the mail-in form is available, it will be linked at the top of this page.

At-Con Registration

Both full-weekend memberships and single-day memberships can be purchased at the door, along with tickets for the Sunday night Dessert Salon. We accept payment via cash, personal check, or credit/debit card.

Registration is capped at 1,000 members. We do not guarantee availability of at-the-door memberships. Memberships sent by mail may be returned if we have already reached our cap of 1000 members.
