Animazement is held annually in May on Memorial Day Weekend. You can find our general hours here.
Animazement is held in the Raleigh Convention Center (RCC) in Downtown Raleigh, NC.
There are lots of parking options in Downtown Raleigh, though few of these options are free. You can read up on it on our general info page.
If you want to come to Animazement, the first step is registration. Take advantage of special discounted pre-registration rates during our online pre-registration period, or purchase your badge at the door! Everything you need to know about pricing and how to register for Animazement, including an extensive Registration FAQ, is available at the link below.
The Registration FAQ answers common questions about how to buy a badge, where to pick it up, and how to apply for group discounts or financial assistance.
The main convention runs from Friday through Sunday. However, if you purchase a Full Weekend badge, it will also get you into Thursday Night Pre-con.
Pre-con begins at 6pm on Thursday night and goes through midnight. Find out more about what you can do at pre-con here.
A week or two before the convention, you can find our detailed schedule of events posted on our front page!
If you still have a question after reading our policies, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be more than happy to answer any questions!
Our AZ Bee volunteers can work as many or as few hours as they like, and are an integral part of what makes Animazement happen! You can find more information here:
Please keep in mind that all costume props must meet the conditions of Animazement’s Props and Weapons policy. Also, please remember that all costume props must be carried and handled responsibly in the convention (that means, no horseplay).
Both of these policies can be found here:
We will NOT check IDs at the panel room door.
The wristband table is open daily in the main lobby from 9:00am until 11:00pm. Some 18+ events begin as late as 1:00am, so make sure to get your wristband before the table closes.
Some events, like our late night dance, do have a bag size restriction. Any event with a bag restriction will be indicated in your program guide.
