AVCon 2024 is running several cosplay competitions! Applications are now open for our AVCon Cosplay Competition, which you can check out here! We are also running a Kids Cosplay Competition for cosplayers aged under 15 with more details coming soon! For those who just want to showcase their cosplay and grab a few pictures without the competition, you can sign up for our Cosplay Parade, which runs on Saturday and Sunday – more information is available here!


You can pre-purchase tickets to AVCon 2024 online at our Eventbrite, and you can also purchase tickets at the door at AVCon 2024. Eventbrite Australia is the only authorised online ticket outlet for purchasing AVCon 2024 tickets (booking fees may apply). Online sales will remain open during the Festival.

You can also buy limited edition physical day and weekend tickets at select retail outlets throughout South Australia! This option offers the perks of supporting local stores, waiving the booking fees, and getting an awesome keepsake for your AVCon collection! Learn more here!

After you pre-purchase your ticket, the next step is to get your physical pass and lanyard. Physical passes can be picked up during the pre-registration pick-up period on Friday and all day Saturday and Sunday. You can also redeem your friends’ passes as well as long as you have the receipt with the QR code. Pass pick-up location information will be avaliable closer to the date. Once you’re in the venue, please display your pass at all times, as our Invaders and the security will check up regularly.

Ticket purchases will be avaliable at the door on all days of the Festival. Ticketing booth and pre-registration pickup opening and closing times will be available closer to the date. However, we recommend avoiding disappointment by purchasing online before the event, as tickets are limited.

AVCon honours companion cards! Companion card tickets must be accompanied by an injunction with a paid ticket. Companion card holders must show their card on the day to validate their free ticket. Please contact us through our Contact Us web page or by emailing ticketing@avcon.org.au to secure your free ticket. 

Video Games

Our console tournaments and sign-up information will be available closer to the date. If you have a suggestion for a console tournament, please contact us through our Contact Us web page or by emailing games@avcon.org.au.


We’re always looking for passionate volunteers to help with different parts of the Festival. You can check out our Get Involved page here for the latest opportunities.

Yep! AVCon is entirely and utterly volunteer-operated, and our only payment is in friendship! Since 2002, AVCon has been a passion project of dedicated geeks with a flair for creativity, organisation and business.
