Is there an Entry Fee?
Nope! Chromacon is completely free for public entry!
Tickets for Chroma Connect, our industry focused creative symposium taking place alongside Chromacon will be available separately.
Who should attend this event? Is there an age restriction? Will there be nudity, sexual themes, or violence depicted in the works exhibited?
Everyone’s welcome! However, children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver.
We have a strong stance against censorship of artworks at Chromacon, due to this – we can not guarantee a lack of adult subject matters being exhibited. We highly recommend parents accompany attendees below 17 years of age.
If you have any further questions regarding this matter, please feel free to contact us.
Are photos allowed at Chromacon?
Of course! However, photos of a specific individual or artwork should be taken with permission from the the subject/ exhibitor.
Common courtesy aside, this is especially important if you are planning on taking photos of artworks, due to copyright reasons it is imperative that you ask for the creator’s permission first.
Is this a cosplay convention?
We recognise that cosplayers are closely linked with comic and pop-culture conventions. However, Chromacon is first and foremost, an arts festival that focuses on the exhibitors and the showcase of independent work.
You are welcome to dress up for the event, however – please refrain from gathering in large groups or performing with/without props in any way inside the venue due to space limitations and safety concerns.
Will there be food/ drinks available in the venue? Can I bring my own into the event?
No food or drinks are allowed inside the festival venues without express permission from Chromacon staff as per venue policy, if you have bought or purchased such items from elsewhere please enjoy them outside the venue.
Catering options are available at the Box Cafe, Aotea Centre as well as surrounding restaurants.
