  • Do not assume that a behavior you would find acceptable is therefore acceptable to another person.

Membership Policy

Badges and wristbands serve as proof of membership for the dates and/or times listed on them. Your membership grants you access to all non-specialty events and function spaces based on availability and convention policies. Specialty events (Yellow City Comic Con Ball, Maid Cafe, etc.) may require an additional fee. Badges and wristbands remain the property of Yellow City Comic Con LLC, and must be surrendered on request by an authorized representative of Yellow City Comic Con. Please remember that duplicating a membership badge is forgery- a felony in the state of Texas. If you are caught forging and/or selling forged badges, you will be banned from the convention, and given to the custody of the Amarillo City Police.

The Yellow City Comic Con venue spaces comprise the Amarillo Civic Center. Access to these spaces requires that proof of membership be displayed at all times. No proof of membership is required to go to registration.

Badge checks are performed for entrance to the following areas:

  • Civic Center main concourse and meeting halls
  • All events and panels
  • Video, Video Gaming, Gaming, and any other established event spaces

Persons without proof of membership found to be loitering in any controlled spaces will be required to buy a membership or asked to leave.
