In addition, you will be able to purchase memberships at a special student rate and for Saturday night only at the door. The student rates, available at-the-door rates only, will be $47 (full convention membership), $12 (Friday only), $28 (Saturday only), $13 (Sunday only).

Finally, if you're only interested in dropping by to see the Filk Concert and the Play on Saturday night, you can buy a membership at-the-door after 5pm on Saturday for just $20.

Kids Memberships

The cost of DragonsLair is included in the con membership, so all children (ages 7-12) who use these services must be convention members. However, children under 10 who stay with their parents at all times are considered "kids-in-tow" who need not have memberships. ("Kids-in-tow" do not receive any convention materials.)

We are not able to offer babybsitting through the convention.

Getting Your Badge at Boskone

Registration will be open Friday (starting 3PM) through Sunday (noon) in the second floor pre-function area. To reach the Registration area, take a left past the City Bar as you enter the lobby through the main doors then take the up escalator to the second floor.

To reach the elevator, go straight past the City Bar and into a nook where the elevator is on your left.

Everyone—committee, staff, program participants, artists, dealers—must register there, to get name badges and convention materials. We will make it as painless an experience as we can! Remember to bring government-issued photographic identification, such as a driver's license or passport, to Registration. Signs will be posted about after-hours Registration for people who arrive late.

Transferring Memberships

Boskone does not refund memberships. However, you may transfer your membership to someone else. All membership transfers must be done in writing. Your transferee will be able to register much more quickly at the convention if you write to us in advance (to the PO Box) to let us know of the transfer and have your transferee bring a copy of your transfer letter to Registration. Please note life memberships are not transferable.

Buying Memberships at the Door

Not sure if you're coming to Boskone? Only coming for a day? Of course you can buy memberships at-the-door.

This year, we'll have a special rate for anyone buying at at-the-door membership who has a current student ID.
