Important Announcement Regarding Badges

MAGFest 2017 is going to sell out, and we cannot guarantee that badges will be available for sale at the door. The only way to guarantee yourself a badge is to purchase one during pre-registration, which will close January 4th, 2017 at 11:59pm Eastern Time. After that, badges may still be available online and at the door if we have not yet already sold out. Since we will be selling out of full weekend four-day badges, we will no longer be selling one-day badges. This offers a few advantages to our attendees:

  • Smoother badge pickup process at-door
  • No confusion of at-door availability for single-day vs full weekend passes (This issue arose last year when we sold out of Saturday passes)
  • Lower full-weekend badge cost for those who arrive later (if badges are still available)

If we do not exhaust our badge supply before the event starts, we will provide a discounted rate to later arrivals who purchase a badge. Pricing is as follows:

Day of purchase Badge price
Thursday, January 5th $85
Friday, January 6th $75
Saturday, January 7th $55
Sunday, January 8th $20

Children between 6 and 12 receive badges at half price, and those 5 and under receive free admission. All children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult 18 or older with a paid badge.

We welcome any questions that you may have, which can be directed to our Registration department at Please understand that our registration staff are all volunteers but we will make every effort to answer questions as quickly as possible.
