Proceeds from one of Denver’s Largest Consumer Events Benefit Pop Culture Classroom, a Denver Non-profit Focused on Education, Literacy
More than 100,000 guests are expected at the Colorado Convention Center for Denver Comic Con, June 15-17. This annual tradition of larger than life, family-friendly fun and fandom is unmatched by any event in the Mile High City. Whether attendees are interested in the 200+ celebrity guests, artists and authors, the comics and collectibles, or the more than 600 hours of panels and programming across three days, Denver Comic Con seeks to ensure a top-notch guest experience. For first-timers and veterans alike, the Denver Comic Con team has put together a handy list of information about what’s new this year and tips to help guests prepare for their epic DCC 2018 adventure.
To promote a quicker and more streamlined entry process, Denver Comic Con has implemented Flash Seats, an ID-based digital ticketing system that allows guests to enter the event with an ID, the credit card used to purchase tickets or with the Flash Seats mobile app, which also allows guests to sell, buy, and transfer tickets.

Even with the new, more efficient ticketing system, guests should plan for lines, particularly for some of the more popular events, sessions and guests. Entry lines will be longest when the Con opens at 10 a.m. each day, with the longest lines of the weekend expected on Saturday.
Early badge pick-up will be available Thursday, Jun. 14 at the Colorado Convention Center from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. at the entrance near 13th St. & Welton St.
Denver Comic Con’s top priority is the welfare and safety of guests. With that in mind, DCC staff works closely with the Denver Police Department and security contractors throughout the year on a variety of measures to enhance guest safety at the event, including training, bag checks and prop checks throughout the weekend.
Please note that the 2018 cosplay guidelines have been updated, and NO prop firearms will be permitted. Guests seeking the optimal fan experience are encouraged to carry in a little as possible with them. Minimizing outside items will expedite security checks and maximize efficiency at points of entry.
