How much are tickets?
Will I be able to meet Stan Lee?
Stan will be with us at the show all four days. Photo ops are on sale now, and a full “experience” package is now available HERE
What about the parties?
There’s a party on both Thursday and Friday night – as long as you have a badge for that day, you can get in to that night’s party.
As for Nerd Year’s Eve itself, there are four parties scheduled: a live music Main Event, a DJ-driven Main Event (both ages 18+, which require the purchase of a GA NYE Party Pass), a VIP party (21+, which requires the purchase of the VIP NYE Party Pass), and a “family-friendly” party (all ages, all badges welcome). Details on the various parties and their entertainment will be available in the coming weeks.
I want to be a vendor / I would like an Artist’s Alley Table.
Great! Applications are now open for all vendors here – EXHIBITORS & VENDORS
. Additionally, any artists applying for Artist Alley tables, need to read the following statement:
Artist Alley Tables will be available for purchase to professional working artists. To qualify for an artist table you must either be presently employed by a legitimate publisher, or have worked for a major publisher and can provide samples of published work, or be producing your own creator-owned projects. Tables with unpublished artists that are simply selling unlicensed fan art prints will not be allowed. If any small press artist who has purchased a table at a Geek Expos event is caught selling unlicensed prints of copyrighted characters without permission, the show reserves the right to remove that artist from the event without a refund. Artist tables will be sold and approved on a case by case basis, and all attending artists may be required to provide references.
Will you be adding more guests?
Absolutely. Watch the skies.
We’ll have three programming rooms devoted to COMMUNITY-CREATED CONTENT.
From the minute you set foot into Marvelous Nerd Year’s Eve, you have a wealth of choices at your beck and call. We’ll have three programming rooms devoted to NOTHING but community-created content, with everything from cosplay and fanfic to singalongs and debates. (Submit your ideas for content here – CONTENT SUBMISSIONS
.) There’s also MNYE U, our learning tracks where you can take courses on how to be a better writer (with instructors like HUGO and NEBULA Award-winning writer David Gerrold) or effects artist (with instruction from the likes of FACE/OFF finalist Heather Henry) and more.
It is extra for my child?
Children under the age of 2 years are free. There are child passes for Children 2 – 12 years of age.
Entry to any special event will be the event’s normal price.
Do I have to purchase a VIP to get an autograph or Photo Op?
No. Autographs and “selfies” with the celebrities are for sale at the celebrity’s booth with cash.
The VIP includes a professional picture taken by Wolf Photo and an autograph.

I bought a weekend pass, and now I see there are packages, can I upgrade my pass?

What is Sector 37?
MNYE’s Sector 37 is an entire floor devoted solely to VIP badge holders, as a way to relax and recharge during a long weekend. Those with Sector 37 access can unwind in the Sector 37 Lounge with complimentary sodas and waters through the weekend, attend exclusive meet-and-greets and panels, and rub elbows with some of the celebrity guests in attendance. The Sector 37 Lounge will have a bar where adult beverages will be available for purchase. Restricted to 21 and older.
To participate in the world record attempt, what does a costume consist of?
A full costume. 1/2 costumes (Just shirts or pants), will not work per Guinness guidelines.
For example: Spider-Man needs to be full body suit, with boots. (Gloves expected, but not specified)
If the Guinness world record is met, will the participants get certificates?
If we hit the goal, we will have it as an option to purchase a certificate from Guinness.
