Tips & Tricks

Comicpalooza is a big show and there’s lots to do. If you’re new to it all, it may be overwhelming and we want to help ease any concerns. Try these helpful hacks and best practices below.

#1 Buy Before You Arrive
No one likes long lines. Purchase your pass before you come to the show, either online or via the app, and enjoy cost savings. If you wait until event weekend, you will have to pay door prices but you'll only have to stop by will call to pick up your pass. You can learn more about our different buying options on our Buyer's Guide.

#2 Follow Us on Social Media
Pick your platforms and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or YouTube. Facebook, our Facebook Event Page, and Twitter have the most up to date information for the public including cool announcements and industry news, while Instagram and YouTube are more about what you can see at Comicpalooza and what you can do, whether from previous years or happening in real-time event weekend.
