Bring the following with you:

  • Valid photo ID (i.e. Drivers License, School ID, Work ID, Passport, Military ID, etc.)
  • You are responsible for your Electronic Confirmation. It can be only used once. If it is used by someone else, we are NOT responsible for it and you will have to purchase another badge.
    • If you’re under the age of 12, you must be accompanied by an adult who also has a badge for Taiyou Con during the duration of the convention.
