GalaxyCon After Dark consists of Late Night programming like Burlesque, The Rocky Horror Picture Show Shadow Cast, Afterparties, Karaoke, Drag Revue's along with the After Dark Market which is vendors open 9pm-1:30am in front of the exhibition hall.
The full schedule of events is usually finalized about two weeks before the convention. We begin by placing the celebrities, then the fan panelists, and finally the Photo Ops. We usually have guest cancellations in the last month of a show, and this causes us to have to redo a lot of stuff, especially because we try to replace those guests too. We strive to keep the geek genres from overlapping sessions, and so we put a lot of time and energy into the schedule. For example, we wouldn’t put a Star Trek fan panel on at the same time William Shatner is on stage.
We do our best to avoid cancellations, however if they do occur we will fully refund any autograph and photo op tickets for that celebrity. We do not refund admission tickets when guests cancel. We hear all the time, “I was only coming for this one guest.”
We’re not a one guest festival, and if you are really only coming for one guest, please understand in advance that your guest may cancel and that there is no refund on admission. We support the guests’ ability to take film gigs and further their careers beyond fan festivals.
We also strive to replace guests when they cancel with relevant alternatives.
We have arranged for special discounts at nearby hotels. You can find this information on the city event pages.
There is currently no specific bag policy. Please remember that bags may be searched at anytime by Security, Police, and/or Staff. Refusal to comply will result in ejection from the venue with no refund or credit.
No photos are allowed in the celebrity autograph or photo op area unless you have purchased a photo through a celebrity handler
All of our markets feature accessible buildings equipped with elevators and ramps. If you have trouble standing for long periods of time, you may share a doctor’s note to get a free fast pass button to get through the festival more easily. These buttons are available at the accessibility desk in pre-registration.
Photo Ops provides fans with the chance to take a photo with their favorite celebrity in a fast-paced environment designed to accommodate as many fans as possible. For more information about Photo Ops, visit our FAQ Page.
