All attendees must follow the Kumoricon Lite Code of Conduct, which is similar to (but not identical to) the Kumoricon 2018 Code of Conduct.

Register at the door

Registration is available at the door. (Pre-registration is closed as of July 22.)

Do I need to bring ID to Kumoricon Lite?

Yes, everyone must bring government-issued photo ID, even if you are registering at the door. ID must be valid (not expired).

Examples of acceptable forms of identification:

  • State-issued driver license
  • State-issued driver permit
  • State-issued identification card
  • Military ID
  • Passport

For attendees age 13 to 17 only, if one of the above forms of ID is not available, then school ID from the current or previous school year is acceptable. If school ID is not available, then the attendee's parent or legal guardian must be present during check-in.

If acceptable ID is not presented, you will not be able to enter Kumoricon Lite.

Is parent permission required to attend Kumoricon Lite?

Do parents need to attend Kumoricon Lite with their children?

Yes, but only for attendees under age 13. For these attendees, parents or legal guardians must remain with their children at all times, and the parent or guardian must be a paid attendee as well.

How does parent permission work?
  1. Download the parent permission and release form – blank version for handwriting, or fillable version for typing your information.
  2. The parent or legal guardian signs the form.
  3. The attendee brings it with them to the event when registering or checking in. If the attendee is age 13 or over, the parent does not need to attend.

The permission form must be brought in person.

How do I join staff for Kumoricon Lite?

Please contact your coordinator, manager, or director with your regular Kumoricon position, or the position you are interested in at Open Positions, to inquire about open positions at Kumoricon Lite. If you aren't sure, you can also email us at and we will help you with the staff registration process. When contacting, please specify that your interest is for Kumoricon Lite.

Positions include: Registration Staff, Load-In/Load-Out Staff, Main Events Staff, Gaming Staff, Yojimbo Staff, and Maids/Butlers.

We are especially looking for Video Gaming Staff.
