We have a new registration system this year and we've heard there's some confusion about whether the registration purchase went through or not, and noticed a LOT of incomplete registrations. If you have received your registration confirmation email, you should be good, and your purchase has been processed. However, if you HAVE NOT received a confirmation email, please check if your designated payment method has been charged. If it has not been charged (or if it has been charged and you've received no confirmation), please reach out ASAP to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ( that's registration(at)frolicon(dot)com ) to ask us to check. While we can't complete your order for you, we can make sure it completed.

If you're currently going through the order process here's some advice:

- Keep hitting next until you get a QR code. The first "receipt" after entering billing information is actually an invoice preview, and your card HAS NOT been charged yet. You will be charged after entering payment information on the PayPal portal. Your PayPal receipt will note that you made a payment to Herding Cats, as per usual.

- Check for your confirmation email - it will have everything you need to confirm your order processed.

- A QR code is a square, Rorschach test-esque picture that you can save to your phone or just leave saved in your email until the convention next year.

- If you're not sure whether you've registered or not, please reach out to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will check for you. We know this is a brand new system for Frolicon and for its attendees and we want to be certain that registration is as painless as possible for Frolicon 2020.

Confirmation and Update Emails - Confirmation of your registration will be emailed shortly after your online registration is completed. Please check and make sure your all the information you provided is correct. If you made an error or need to change something on your form don’t stress. We’ll send out info on how you can edit your form sometime in the near future.

If you need to change your legal name on the form however…you’ll need to let us know by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Watch the website for lots of info, tips, and updates throughout the year. Trust us…you don’t want to miss all the juicy goods!

Picking up your badge – When you arrive at the hotel look for the signs directing you to registration. You’ll need your beautiful self and a state issued ID. That’s it! Easy Peasy.

IDs - We can't stress this enough. ALL IDs ARE CHECKED. NO EXCEPTIONS!!! Frolicon is a 21 and older event and we are very, very strict about this rule. If you live in Iceland and leave your passport at home (somehow) you will not able to pick up your badge. Please don't ask, we hate turning away people simply because they forgot their ID. Of course getting into Frolicon is probably the least of your worries if you forget your passport in Iceland…but you get the point. No ID. No Entry.


2020 Pre-registrations are non-refundable and non-transferable.  

We really really REALLY hope you'll be able to join us for what is sure to be a very special Frolicon in December 2020. But if you can't we completely understand. Here are a few options for you and some information you may need to know:

- Can't make Frolicon 2020: Winter Edition in December? Transfer your Pre-Reg to Frolicon 2021 and we'll see you in May! Use the following form to submit your transfer request from now until August 31st.

- If neither of those dates work for you we'll happily Refund your pre-reg (with a big frowny face though...cuz we'll miss you). Use the following form to submit your refund request from now until August 31st.


What info goes on my badge?

  • Your Badge Name: This can be anything you want
  • Your Badge Number: This is a number with no meaning except to the convention.
  • If you are a volunteer or guest of Frolicon the badge will include your department, such as "Registration" or "Performer". It could include your title such as "Director". If you are attending as a representative of a company, an exhibitor in the Dealers Room for example, the badge will show the name of your company.
  • That’s it... there will be no other information on the badge, not your city or state, not your birthday or age and never, ever your real name. The other information we request when you register is to be able to show we checked your ID to prove your age.
