FAQs

Is this show really all weekend? Do we stay overnight?
The show does have hours.

Friday night is commonly from 7:30pm-10:00pm.
Saturday and Sunday, doors open at 10:00am, classes and scenes (with scheduled breaks and lunch in between) through 4:00pm.
After doors close, you are left to your devices as to your lodgings for the evening. Many do stay at the hotel along with other convention goers. But there is no obligation, many also go home for the evening.
MileHiCon commonly offers a discounted rate for the hotel for that weekend. Please visit www.milehicon.org for more hotel information.
Saturday evening does also include the Dark Wizards Ball. This generally runs from 9:00pm – Midnight

Is the Dark Wizard’s Ball ‘in character’?
No, this is for pure fun. There is no storyline that occurs during the Ball. Often the cast wears strikingly different costumes to help with the separation, such as Starfleet uniforms or Batman characters.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
Our policy is that any attendee younger than 12 has a parent or guardian. As we recognize the ticket prices can be steep, especially in regards to having a parent present, we do offer Chaperone passes for $15 for the weekend.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Our show runs concurrently with MileHiCon, parking is available at the hotel and surrounding areas. If you are not staying at the hotel, parking has been difficult at times in the past.

Do I have to wear wizarding robes/be in costume/bring a wand/etc?
It is not required to be in costume of any sort. Many patrons choose to wear costumes or cosplay for our show, as it helps them feel more immersive. However we have plenty who wear jeans and a t-shirt. There is no obligation. We do suggest to keep your comfort in mind and to remember it is a family show when choosing your outfits.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Please reach out to Brian Dowling: headmaster@avistrum.org
