the creation entertainment difference

Unlike so many other genre conventions, Creation Entertainment has a strict company policy not to "oversell" our conventions. In other words, every patron, no matter what bracket of ticket they purchase, will have a seat in the main auditorium where the major guests appear and events take place. Nothing upsets us more than hearing about other conventions that sell tickets to patrons and then those very same patrons have to wait on additional lines inside the facility to get into (or sometimes not!) the main theatre. An important Creation Entertainment difference we want you to know about!

The Creation difference extends to our 40 years experience in running fan conventions. In the last few years we've seen promoter after promoter fail taking hard earned ticket money down with them. Inexperienced promoters, often first-timers, use celebrity images and names to get ticket money which they use to hopefully pay their expenses. When that fails they've already gone through "your" ticket money and they collapse leaving no recourse for ticket holders. They say "buyer beware" but this has happened in Twilight, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, and Firefly fandom (to name just a few) and we really feel for those great fans who have lost their ticket money and upset travel plans.

**All Convention tickets have a $7.75 shipping/handling fee charged per ticket ordered. This applies to all online orders.

***Attention Attendees: Do not purchase Creation Tickets from scalpers or anyone trying to offer tickets as you arrive at our convention locations. Each ticket is checked for authenticity at the door with a scanner and we cannot let you in if your ticket is counterfeit (which has happened recently). Each ticket once scanned makes any and all copies of that same one of a kind scan void and we can only let the first person in with it. Please ony buy your tickets only from Creation in advance or at the door, we seen too many nice folks lose their hard earned money this way and be turned away. Thanks, we appreciate your support!

WANNA VOLUNTEER AT THIS CONVENTION? GREAT! IT IS MUCH APPRECIATED!
Please email our volunteer coordinator:
and let us know which convention you would like to volunteer.
PLEASE NOTE: You must be 21 years old or over to volunteer.

We really appreciate your help in publicizing this event on-line. Grab our banners to put on your site!

ALL GUESTS are contracted to appear and all convention contracts specify that appearances are tentative and subject to change as film and television work demands take precedence as can a personal conflict. Our events will take place whether a specific guest cancels or not (we always try to book replacements) and therefore we cannot issue admission ticket or ticket package refunds if a particular guest does not fulfill their appearance contract. Of course we will always refund separately purchased photo ops and autograph tickets for a guest if they cancel.

PHOTO TAKING POLICY AT THIS CONVENTION
We know that taking photos makes the convention even more fun and we thought it would be a good idea to share our photo taking policies for you before you arrive at the convention so you can prepare. In the auditorium, photo taking is encouraged, but only from your seat. It is unfair to run up to the stage and block the view of others who have paid for reserved seats in front of you. Even if there are empty seats, patrons must sit in the seats they paid for to be fair to everyone. Due to fire marshal regulations everyone must be seated during performances. Please also be courteous to your neighbors when taking pictures. Photo taking is not allowed during autographing sessions nor during the photo ops. Only those people who have autograph tickets may come up to get autographs. At the Gold Exclusive Parties: photo taking is encouraged when the guests arrive (but only from your seats). After a sufficient time for all to get their photos we ask that your cameras be placed down so the celebrities can enjoy their time at the two food functions. Thank you for understanding the need to have these few rules so everyone is safe and has fun.

The vast majority of our guest celebrities take questions from the audience during their on-stage time. Therefore it is incumbent upon those that ask questions to make them ones that allow our mutual shared time with the celebrities to be enjoyable, interesting and entertaining for all (including the guest). Asking for hugs, telling stars we love them (we all do, that's why we're here), giving gifts, getting into long personal stories, or worse, is not acceptable for this format and, in fact, is quite self-centered when you are in essence "representing" all of fandom to a celebrity. Join us in trying to make this convention the best entertainment for everyone!

In the event of convention cancellations or date changes Creation Entertainment is not responsible for patrons' costs involving travel or hotel accommodations or any other non convention ticket expenses.

Advance ticket sales are generally turned off early to mid-week of the week of the events. Tickets, if they are not sold out, are sold at the convention of course.

Creation celebrates our many years of Convention Memories

Issac Asimov
Here's a pic of the legendary sci-fi author/genius Isaac Asimov, a frequent visitor to our early conventions and quite a character as well! It is amazing that we got to work with him after reading so many of his books.

Young Hercules Ryan Gosling
From the "you never know" category, here in the middle is "Young Hercules" at our Official Hercules/Xena Convention (pictured with his co-stars from that short lived series). He's better known by his real name today: Ryan Gosling, an incredible actor doing wonderful work in feature films.

Karl Urban, Kevin Smith and Danielle Cormack
Back in the heyday of Xena popularity we had the pleasure of meeting some of New Zealand's top talents as they often guested on the series which was filmed in that beautiful country. Left to right: Karl Urban who went onto major stardom as Star Trek's new Dr. McCoy, Kevin Smith, one of our all-time favorite guests, on the verge of international fame when he was killed in a tragic accident, and Danielle Cormack who continues to perform in New Zealand.

Robert Englund
For over two decades we had the pleasure of presenting the country's leading horror fan conventions, Fangoria's Weekend of Horrors with the popular magazine and illustrious editor Tony Timpone. These shows were a breeding ground for up and coming genre talent and that makes us proud. Here, one of the icons of the field, Robert Englund, on stage.

Bruce Lee Action Figure
During one crazy phase we started manufacturing action figures and selling them in Toys R Us amongst other national retailers. Bruce Lee was probably are most realistic looking figure, but we also had success with Saturday Night Live figures and Drew and Mimi from The Drew Carey Show.

Farscape Convention
It had one of the most loyal and passionate fan movements behind it and a gloriously talented cast of performers working with amazing and intelligent scripts. We were delighted to be associated with this incredible and still missed series and it was always a special pleasure to work with star Ben Browder.

Early Creation Convention
We were ahead of the times back in the 80's with conventions mixing all sorts of fan favorites together. Usually all the different fandoms got along and it is nice to see that Dr. Who is more popular than ever. We were licensees back in the day and worked with many of the earlier Doctors, including, of course, the larger than life Tom Baker.

Official Star Trek Convention San Francisco
Here is a scene from a recent Official Star Trek Convention in San Francisco with Brent Spiner on stage speaking to a sold out crowd.

DeForest Kelly
There was never any guest nicer than the amazing DeForest Kelley who graced our stages many, many times always putting on a warm and entertaining presentation for his legions of dedicated fans. He was just as cool as you would want him to be!

Nimoy and Quinto
The only time this ever happened: Three Mr. Spocks on stage, a really special moment

Spock Bust
It all started with a Mr. Spock head: our entry into the world of Star Trek merchandising began full time when we purchased 1,000 of these 35 years ago or so. We still have a few left!

Star Trek 45th Anniversary
Every five year anniversary marks a special time to remember for Star Trek fans and our conventions take on an air of a family reunion of long-time fans and the stars we all admire. Sadly we also mark the loss of some of those talents who appeared with us regularly at our events. They are missed.

TV Land Store
One of our most fun to run conventions was The Official TV LAND Convention. Here is the convention store we set up offering goodies to fellow TV fanatics!

Larry Hagman
This is pretty cool: Sam Rubin interviewed legendary Larry Hagman at our TV Land Convention, sadly a one-time only gathering, but did we ever enjoy meeting so many of our all-time favorite TV stars!

Tim Conway
Another wonderful moment from the TV Land Convention: here's the hilarious Tim Conway regaling the audience with anecdotes about his career that has spanned decades.

TV Land
Dick Martin, George Schlatter and Alan Sues at the TV Land Convention

Creation's Amazing Panel
Here's an amazing panel we did in LA at the famed Biltmore Hotel: Forry Ackerman, Ray Bradbury, Ray Harryhausen and John Landis!

Jack King Kirby
Comic book and entertainment fans owe much to the legendary JACK KIRBY, the revered talent who co-created the Marvel mythology and made many early appearances with us, among his most devoted followers. Although his passing never allowed Jack to see the amazing success of his characters in film we do know that his appearances at conventions always brought down the house!

John Noble
It is always great when we can personally thank a performer for an absolutely beautifully done job and that was just the treat when John Noble appeared in Feb of 2013 wrapping up his epic FRINGE series, one of our all-time favorite shows!

Alfre Woodard
The beautiful and talented Alfre Woodard graced her stages to reminisce about her appearance in Star Trek as Lily in the movie Star Trek: First Contact, but of course she is best known for being an Academy Award and Grammy nominated actress as well as having an incredible 17 Emmy nominations (winning four).

William Shatner, Sir Patrick Stewart and Leonard Nimoy
Our Vegas Star Trek Convention is ALWAYS full of surprises! Sir Patrick Stewart joins William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy in this once in a lifetime moment! We're glad we were there!

Wally Schirra and Alan Bean
In 2006, space pioneers, astronauts Wally Schirra and Alan Bean, guested at Grand Slam: it was an honor!
Photo Credit: David Livingston

Kirsten, Robert and Taylor
Three of the most popular actors on the planet graced our stages along with their The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn director: Bill Condon, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner helped us make history at an official fan gathering done in conjunction with the press junket and in association with Summit Entertainment.

Creation 1971
Our first convention program in 1971, ticket prices were $1.50 a day and our special guest was legendary comic artist superstar Jim Steranko!

Creation 1971
We even had time to publish 6 issues of a popular comic art fanzine called Infinity when we were teenagers. Back in the days before the internet, printed fanzines and conventions helped keep fandom connected.

celebrating star trek 40th anniversary
When we ran The Official STAR WARS Convention we brought in Gene Roddenberry as a surprise and this moment in time was a true highlight. Gene was a great mentor of ours and he is always in our thoughts, especially when we gather for our Official STAR TREK Conventions.

celebrating star trek 40th anniversary
LOST was one of the great TV series of all-time and we were proud to be an official licensee for the show. Here three of the stars, Ian Somerhalder, Evangeline Lilly and Naveen Andrews, grace our stages in a Creation Convention appearance.

celebrating star trek 40th anniversary
Two of our most popular celebrity guests from the Stargate franchise making their only Creation appearance together on stage: Michael Shanks and Amanda Tapping! We love following their careers post Stargate and look forward to enjoying their work for years to come!

celebrating star trek 40th anniversary
How's this for cool? Arnold as THE Terminator at our Official T-2 Convention, an awesome occasion!

celebrating star trek 40th anniversary
A VERY special moment in Creation History

BILL SHATNER & LEONARD NIMOY toasting the 40th Anniversary of Star Trek on the exact day, 4 decades later, that the original series began its TV run! Taken in Chicago at Creation's Salute to Star Trek's 40th! Thanks, Bill and Leonard for being such a big part of Creation Entertainment! Who would have thought that as kids that watched classic Trek, that one day we'd be working with these show biz legends!


History is made again at Creation when LEONARD NIMOY passes the ceremonial "#1 Vulcan" tee-shirt to the new Mr. Spock ZACHARY QUINTO. It all happened in front of the audience at Grand Slam XVI. Creation Conventions: it is ALL about making wonderful memories like this!

Jack Nicholson
Superstar Legend Jack Nicholson made the "Creation" scene, a definite ultra-cool moment in our 40 plus year history!

Patrick Macnee
Growing up watching THE AVENGERS was a particular joy so when Patrick Macnee joined the Creation line-up of stars it was a joyous occasion for us and his many fans!

Star Trek Captains
It's never happened before or after but it was another of our proudest moments: having four STAR TREK Captains share the stage. Let's hope we can pull it off again some day and add a few more?

Star Trek Captains
Long-time Creation friend (and early fan attendee turned superstar producer) DEAN DEVLIN brought along friends Hank Azaria and Harry Shearer to one of our shows. Dean is currently behind one of TV's greatest shows LEVERAGE!

Star Trek Captains
The impeccable Ricardo Montalban created Star Trek's most popular villian as Khan but in person he truly was one of a kind and his two appearances for us were definitely amongst the most memorable! He is sorely missed by all Trekkers and was indeed a Hollywood classic himself!

Star Trek Captains
Gracious and supportive to us as ever William Shatner made sure first time Creation guest star Joan Collins (in her only convention appearance) was comfortable on stage, reunited decades after their ultra-popular classic Trek appearance together!

Star Trek Captains
As promised, a seat for all! Here's a scene of the amazing theatre we used for years for our Las Vegas Star Trek Convention. At Creation shows: no waiting and worrying about seeing the stars!

Star Trek Captains
Pretty Cool we'd say to have welcomed the ultra talented Elijah Wood as Creation promoted several Official LORD OF THE RINGS events.

Kierin and Elijah
Amazing photo of Kierin Ferris and Elijah Wood from our Lord of the Rings events

Here's some shots of Leonard Nimoy's last convention appearance (courtesy of Paul Harvath), taken at our Chicago 2011 Official STAR TREK Convention. Thank You Leonard for your three decade association with Creation: we've loved every minute of presenting you to your adoring fans (of which we number ourselves!):

In general, questions for our celebrities are taken from the audience at microphones in the front of the audience area. Yelling of questions from the audience is disruptive and rude to everyone present, and may result in being asked to leave the theatre and convention. We ask that everyone respect their fellow attendees.

Customer support email: ANY problem you have please write to us at: customer.service@creationent.com and we'll look into it and get right back to you. Thanks!

Regarding the issue of alcoholic beverages at the convention: Due to the severity of infractions that have occurred recently, we have been advised that we can no longer allow alcohol to be present in our function rooms including the main theatre. This includes daily panel events, the karaoke party and the Saturday night concert. We kindly ask, for the evening events (karaoke, Saturday night concert), you do not bring bags. Water stations will be available in the room and, for those that have special medical needs, you can discreetly discuss those with security before entering. We regret that we've had to take this measure, but we must protect our audience and celebrities. We retain the right not to allow entrance into any of the events to anyone who shows up appearing intoxicated. We will call hotel security or, as a last resort, the police, if necessary, to protect our audience. Updates to this section on alcohol can occur at any time and if so will be noted on the schedule of events given out to each patron when they arrive at the convention on the front page.

ADA rules on service animals  This event welcomes service animals as per the ADA rules.  Service animals perform valuable work or tasks and are trained to provide help directly related to a person's disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA and therefore are not permitted at our event.

All guests are announced when contracted, and all convention contracts include clauses allowing actors to cancel if they get film and/or television work. In the rare case of a guest cancellation we always try to do our best to replace performers. We cannot, however, refund tickets for a convention admission based on a guest cancellation, beyond of course specific autograph and/or photo op tickets which are not included in packages.

For those attending our conventions and making travel plans: please know that the majority of guests that appear on stage do so usually in the later part of the day (although that is sometimes different for actors working on a current series). Sometimes autographing runs into the evening or later when guests appear late in the day. Because we have to wait for guests to give us their flight information we cannot tell you in advance when these autograph sessions will occur until the convention schedule is posted at this website a few days before the event. For those out-of-towners that want to guarantee autographs of stars appearing on Sunday, we do suggest staying over or planning a later leaving time. More recently both Jensen and Jared's autographs have occurred starting around 6:30pm Sunday though there is no guarantee of that for this particular show.

PLEASE BE CAREFUL! We do suggest buying tickets only from the original source: through this website. Because all tickets are scanned for use at the convention we can ONLY allow the first person in using each singular ticket. Autograph and photo op tickets are also scanned for one-time use.

Flashes occur from phone and cameras often during stage presentations. If you are sensitive to such lighting please be advised to take the necessary precautions. For our attendees please keep flash photography to a minimum and familiarize yourself on how to get the best pictures in different lighting situations. Generally flash is not the best way to take photos at the convention. We will attempt to have a more detailed note page of getting the best pictures at conventions available soon.

Make sure to get on our SUPERNATURAL e-mail newsletter list

Master of Ceremonies

Master of Ceremonies YOUR SPECIAL MASTER OF CEREMONIES FOR THE CONVENTION: RICHARD SPEIGHT Jr.

What can we say about a gentleman we are deeply indebted to for amping up the entertainment level at our conventions? Richard's work on stage as MC is exceptionally entertaining and his quick wit manages to bring out the very best of our guests without overshadowing them. Our definition of a "perfect host," and Richard makes this tough job truly look easy.

Our hats are off to him as we gladly continue a relationship we truly treasure. Richard, of course, has had a long career outside of Supernatural including work on Yes, Dear, Jag, Jericho, Justified, Band of Brothers, and The Appomattox, amongst others. Naturally Richard will be with us all three days of the convention.

Richard, as of the time of this writing, had his first episode of directing SUPERNATURAL receive excellent reviews and ratings.

R2M

R2M

Did you know when we started The Creation Entertainment Official SUPERNATURAL Conventions, these great performers didn't even know each other!   Like so many fans, they became best friends, and we're thrilled to see their careers all doing great and leading to new endeavors.  Richard, Matt and Rob are the anchor core of our 2017 tour: don't miss their theatrical presentation on stage together (we guarantee laughs!), their photo ops and autographs.


 

Karaoke Party

Starring Karaoke Kings Richard Speight, Jr. And Matt Cohen With Special Appearance By The Amazing Rob Benedict!

The Karaoke Kings

“The Karaoke Kings” have announced their overall 2017 theme, above is the logo and you can come as any old-time circus character you like. Richard is of course dressing as THE RINGMASTER and who better than Matt Cohen to portray THE STRONGMAN. There has never been a fandom party quite as unique and as much fun as Richard Speight Jr. and Matt Cohen’s The Karaoke Kings Party featuring Rob Benedict! On occasion there is a a varying roster of co-hosts joining Richard, we usually don't know who until before the show as Matt has a long-running job on General Hospital and sometimes cannot get to a city until too late Friday night or until Saturday morning. In any case we ALWAYS deliver a GREAT TIME TO ALL AT THESE EVENTS.

Dressing up is not mandatory, just for fun, but you can come as you are. Chairs are removed from the front of the theatre for those that wish to stand close to the action but there are seats in the rear for those that just want to chill and watch. Our DJ is available on Friday (see schedule of events for time) to meet fans that want to sing and help them with their song selections. While this is not a guarantee you will be selected, it is the only way to get in the running!

Our KARAOKE KINGS are large and in charge of our famous Free Karaoke Parties and are joined by special celebrity guest back-up singers, usually, but not always, our Friday guests. We really never know who Richard and Matt will bring to the party!

be present in our function rooms including the main theatre. This includes daily panel events, the karaoke party and the Saturday night concert. We kindly ask, for the evening events (karaoke, Saturday night concert), you do not bring bags. Water stations will be available in the room and, for those that have special medical needs, you can discreetly discuss those with security before entering. We regret that we've had to take this measure, but we must protect our audience and celebrities. We retain the right not to allow entrance into any of the events to anyone who shows up appearing intoxicated. We will call hotel security or, as a last resort, the police, if necessary, to protect our audience.

A Concert Event! CREATION ENTERTAINMENT PROUDLY PRESENTS
Louden Swain’s


Concert
Louden Swain crossing the street

The hype you've heard is undeniably true: it is indeed the finest night of live entertainment in fan convention history and we at Creation Entertainment are indeed proud to have seen our long-held dream of a full rock concert starring our favorite series stars bring down the house throughout our North American tour, time after time.

Now at the pinnacle of its creative power, this very special night of live entertainment, takes place on the Saturday Night of Creation Entertainment's Official SUPERNATURAL CONVENTION slated for NEW ORLEANS, a center of musical history itself, and we can't wait!

The anchor of the night is, of course, the hot rocking band, LOUDEN SWAIN, starring Billy Moran, Mike Borja, Stephen Norton and lead singer and a "God" to all of us Supernatural fans, Rob Benedict. Rob's song writing and singing along with the band's exquisite playing has the power to bring audiences to tears and simultaneous cheers, a uniquely powerful combination.

Gold, Silver and Copper Patrons keep the same seats they had during the day, and with general seating open to others for only $85, we can confidently say this night is one of the finest bargains in live musical entertainment we've ever witnessed.

STARRING LIVE IN NEW ORLEANS will be ROB BENEDICT and LOUDEN SWAIN, MARK SHEPPARD, MATT COHEN, RICHARD SPEIGHT Jr. and many more still to come. All guests listed are tentative.

If you don't have a ticket yet for New Orlean's SATURDAY NIGHT SPECIAL there is simply no excuse because this is going to be the best ever! THE "SATURDAY NIGHT SPECIAL" CONCERT TICKET IS NOT A DAYTIME CONVENTION TICKET. IT IS A TICKET TO THE "SATURDAY NIGHT SPECIAL" CONCERT ONLY. You do not need a daytime convention ticket in order to attend the nighttime show. Just the nighttime show ticket.

In years past Louden Swain has stayed after the Saturday Night Special concert to sell and sign CDs and merchandise. In 2017, they will be signing any Louden Swain merchandise (other than photos) on both Saturday and Sunday during the day on a complimentary basis for any bought on site item (at a time set aside on the schedule you will get upon arriving). They will no longer be doing the night time signing.

Louden Swain

ANNOUNCING OUR 2017 HOUSE BAND: ON STAGE ALL THREE DAYS!

LOUDEN SWAIN has become an anchor for all of the Creation Entertainment Salute to SUPERNATURAL CONVENTIONS! They have become a mainstay attraction on stage throughout the days, and we can’t imagine a convention being as much fun for all (including the celebrity guests) without them.

They have added so much to the fun of our SUPERNATURAL Conventions; it’s helped take these fan gatherings boldly into a place that takes these affairs into the “vacation” vs. convention territory: it really is three days of non-stop live entertainment! Here are some pictures of the band hard at work in 2013, including Jensen joining in for a brief part of "The Boys Are Back in Town" and in 2014 both Jared and Jensen participated with the band in a version of a Vanilla Ice Rap! More recently (in Vegas 2015) Jensen has actually come to the concert and performed full songs; it tore the house down, so you never know fully what to expect! His performance in 2016 of "Whipping Post" was extraordinary. The audience went crazy! WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING LOUDEN SWAIN AS THE HOUSE BAND AT THE NEW ORLEANS SUPERNATURAL OFFICIAL CONVENTION. DON'T MISS IT!

Just to give you a taste of what COULD happen because we have a house band, here's a great picture of wonderful singer JENSEN ACKLES joining Supernatural's own ROB BENEDICT at a past gathering.

Rob Benedict

The four-piece Los Angeles indie group Louden Swain makes music best described as a combo platter of classic, alternative and hard rock, sounds that have won over legions of fans. Because they go over so big with our audiences and stars, we knew they had to return in cities around North America with them and so it is! Let their music touch your heart throughout the weekend’s activities and especially reserve SATURDAY NIGHT for LOUDEN SWAIN and their special guest performers at our Saturday Night Special Musical Concert: you won't be disappointed!

Fronted by lead singer and actor Rob Benedict (known to Supernatural fans as Chuck Shurley and Carver Edlund), Louden Swain also includes bassist Mike Borja, lead guitarist Billy Moran and drummer Stephen Norton.

Each new album has arrived brimming with gumption and sparky intellect, leading to a lot of early buzz: “The LA pop rock band has a polished sound reminiscent of Marvelous 3,” says Kayley Thomas of Pop Matters, “one that crackles and sparks with wit, humor, and a powerful mix of intellectual and musical playfulness and maturity. Bursting with energy and whimsy.”

Benedict’s connections to the acting world – he has appeared on TV’s Masters of Sex, Felicity, Alias and Supernatural and films like Waiting – then led to the tune “Help You” being placed in the 2010 Jenna Fischer movie A Little Help, in which he co-starred. A successful tour of Europe through England, Germany and Austria also brought Louden Swain to new audiences.

They’ve been making music for 15 years, and boast an impressive catalogue of music including A Brand New Hurt, Eskimo, and 2014’s Sky Alive, now available in vinyl!! Get your copy at the convention.

Here are some pictures of our recent SATURDAY NIGHT SPECIAL held in Vancouver: what a night! We're looking forward to more great nights of live entertainment on Creation Entertainment's Salute to Supernatural Tour: don't miss the fun!

THE SUPERNATURAL FAN MUSIC VIDEO CONTEST

Everyone loves catching the fan-produced music videos we proudly run throughout the convention. It is always fun to share some hot music coupled with fave scenes from Supernatural and we must say how very talented the "fan" editors have become over the year. If you are a talented video editor now is your chance to show off your creativity and vie for prizes at Creation Entertainment's Supernatural Official Convention Tour 2017.

Entries cannot be returned, and person submitting entry is granting Creation the right to play this entry in perpetuity at Creation events worldwide and/or online at the Creation website(s). Creation does not sell music videos so your entry will never be sold as a commercial product, just presented at our events/online.

Winners will receive a $100 gift certificate good for Creation merchandise (Creation merchandise only, excludes convention, autograph and photo op tickets). Winners will be announced and certificates awarded on site. Please tell us which specific convention the music video is for and send in your video using order confirmation or signature required in order to know if it has arrived.

THE SALUTE TO SUPERNATURAL VENDORS AREA

Look out because we have tons of cool official SUPERNATURAL licensed products to offer attendees! There will be official photographs shot from studio source, great T-shirts and apparel, jewelry, mugs and glassware, banners and posters, books and magazines, autographed items, and more! This is THE place to be for Supernatural collectors!

PLEASE NOTE: Because we are a merchandise licensee of Warner Bros. Television for Supernatural only licensed by the studio Supernatural products are permitted for sale at the convention. Other vendors of other genre merchandise are invited to attend as well. For our attendees we wanted you to know that the vendors area is small. Because of this fact, we didn't want anyone to come expecting a huge dealers room.

We are so proud to be associated with Richard Speight Jr. and Rob Benedict, both of which have added so much to Creation Entertainment’s Official Supernatural Convention Tour. They have helped us realize our dream of making these events far more than any other fan convention, truly they have been instrumental in giving our audience three days and two nights of live, super-exciting, interactive and fun entertainment. Simply stated, these events are unlike any other experience out there and at a far more attractive price than similar live show business entertainment like concerts, Broadway shows, celebrity events, etc. One of the coolest things is that by pairing up Richard and Rob at the conventions they have become best friends, much the same way that so many of our attendees have over the years and probably one of the nicest things about the events.

Tickets

Please make sure to bring ALL of your printed out tickets to the convention as we cannot replace any tickets forgotten or lost. This holds true for all ticket buyers, domestic and outside of the United States, as we no longer have a will-call or hold ticket desk. Our convention sites generally have a business office where you can print out your tickets if you have left them home by mistake. Once you present your ticket(s) at registration, photo op areas, or autograph sessions they will be scanned for legitimacy and one-time use only. Thanks!

Please do not purchase tickets second hand.

There have been too many people who unfortunately are copying their scannable tickets and reselling them to unsuspecting patrons. We turn away any ticket that comes up SCANNED ALREADY and will let ONLY the first person in.

The only way to avoid this issue is NOT to buy tickets from anywhere but Creation’s website or at the convention itself at registration.

Please note: if you have autographs in a package you have purchased you are free to “gift” these to other people as long as they have some sort of admission ticket to the convention. Special exclusive events like J and J’s private Gold Session and free admission to the Saturday Night Special Concert for certain packages should not be resold as the lanyard card and wristband must match for complimentary entrance to these events.

Customer support email: ANY problem you have please write to us at:
and we'll look into it and get right back to you. Thanks!

 

NOTE: You may buy Photo Op and Autograph tickets before buying an Admission ticket, but you need an Admission ticket in order to use the Photo Op and Autograph tickets. Please buy an Admission ticket as soon as you can as we can never guarantee Admission tickets won't sell out before the show. Join our Free Email list to get updates on ticket availability.

ADMISSION TICKET PACKAGES DO NOT INCLUDE PHOTO OPS and these must be purchased separately below or at the convention (if not sold out). Thanks!

Autograph Tickets


In-person autographs with your favorite stars

 

Autograph and Photo Op Tickets do not include admission to the convention. You must have an admission ticket for the convention in order to redeem autograph and photo op tickets. Photography is not allowed during the autograph sessions.

Here is the incredibly rare chance to get an in-person autograph from the sensational stars of SUPERNATURAL. These stars will sign any item you bring from home or buy at the convention. There will be tons of great photographs and other collectibles available at the convention that will be suitable for signing purposes. If you have autographs included in the ticket packages you have purchased and you want more than one autograph per celebrity, you can purchase them here and then get all your signatures from that celebrity at the same (first) time you are called up.

** Please note that we cannot accept "on cellphone" tickets for autograph and photo op sessions so you must print them out at home and bring them to the convention on paper, not your phone. Thank you! We can accept "on cellphone" tickets for admission however.

We are asking that our audience does not delay photo ops or autographs by telling our stars personal stories of how the series has helped them during these sessions. We are well aware of the importance of this issue, and the great work the series’ stars have done in this area but we feel it is not in the best interests of the conventions to overburden our celebrities with so many difficult and heart-wrenching stories focused at an event that is meant to be fun for them and the audience. We are asking, as some of the celebrities have, that your personal stories be posted to their Facebook pages where they can read them in moderation and at a time when they are not dealing with long lines of other folks. Thank you for your consideration in these matters which also includes not taking time at our question line for personal stories; please relate your questions to the series and the stars on stage. THANKS!

tickets

 

Note: Patrons must bring an item for celebrities to sign. You can bring something from home or purchase a photo or other collectible in the vendors room. Please feel free to purchase as many autograph tickets of a particular celebrity as you'd like.

Note: Guests appear ONE day of the convention, so therefore their autographing and/or photo ops take place that day, except in VERY rare occasions which will be noted. If you are not attending all days of the convention it is wise to wait until specific days of appearance are announced before purchasing autographs or photo ops. You must have an admission ticket to the convention to get autographs or photo ops.

 

Photo Op Tickets

The photo op is such a precious moment and the last thing we want to do is ruin that experience. The maximum numbers of each photo op sold has not changed. With the growth of the SPN family there are a few folks who are not following the rules that have always been present. If everyone follows the rules there is no reason to change the way the photo ops have been done for years at the SPN conventions and we will be doing them in that original way as we move forward. Please don’t be the exception that causes a change to the time-tested system that works well for everyone. Creation’s photos have long been the best and our goal is to continue that for all and as a reminder here are the rules as they stand.

If you’d like a pose, you can tell it to the guests, but please make sure you have your pose ready to go. Bring a picture that shows the pose if you think you may have a hard time explaining it. If you have props, please make sure they are easily held and ready to go.

Due to time constraints, here are some of the things we cannot allow: putting on clothing, blankets, ties etc…, floor poses, handcuffs, rose petals, confetti or anything that creates a mess that requires clean up. Please do not ask to be picked up in the photo. We obviously do not want anyone to get hurt.

Please know, that if you want a hug, go for a “hug shot.” Please do not ask for a hug before or after the photo is taken as it takes up someone else’s photo op time. In place of sharing personal stories, some of our celebrities have asked that you contribute your story to their Facebook pages where they can look at personal stories at an appropriate time, or you can choose to send items to the celebrity addresses on our website. It’s about respecting everyone’s convention experience including fellow fans, actors and staff. We only sell a certain number of photo ops at each show and want to make sure everyone gets the best photo op they possibly can. But we need your help in not slowing down the process.

We are asking that our audience does not delay photo ops or autographs by telling our stars personal stories of how the series has helped them during these sessions. We are well aware of the importance of this issue and the great work the series’ stars have done in this area, but we feel it is not in the best interests of the conventions to overburden our celebrities with so many difficult and heart-wrenching stories focused at an event that is meant to be fun for them and the audience.

The photo op experience is one that we know is a highlight of the weekend for many fans. With everyone following the above rules, we can offer the type of experience that everyone wants and we want to deliver. Thank you for co-operating in keeping it a fun celebration of the show and actors we love.

 

 



What’s it like to get a photo op? We talk to some nice attendees who just had the experience!

 

Photo Op tickets do not include admission to the convention. You must have an admission ticket for the convention to enter into the photo op areas. Due to security considerations and guest concerns we cannot facilitate the giving of gifts to guests at the photo op sessions. YOUR ONE PHOTO OP TICKET CAN INCLUDE UP TO TWO FANS, AND YOU ARE ALLOWED TO HAVE UP TO FOUR FANS IN A PHOTO, HOWEVER TO DO THAT YOU WOULD NEED TO PURCHASE TWO TICKETS (TWO FANS TIMES TWO TICKETS = FOUR FANS). Because of logistics and timing, and at the request of our guests and photographers, we cannot accommodate over FOUR fans in any one photo op.

Your photo will be taken by Creation's all knowing and super-powerful official staff photographers. They take the best pictures, make the stars comfortable and willing to pose more freely with fans, and generally are beloved by all. JUST CLICK TO OUR E-MAIL FEEDBACK SECTION TO READ ABOUT HOW GREAT CREATION PHOTO OPS ARE! Please read: PHOTO OP F.A.Q.

** Please note that we cannot accept "on cellphone" tickets for autograph and photo op sessions so you must print them out at home and bring them to the convention on paper, not your phone. Thank you! We can accept "on cellphone" tickets for admission however.

Please order photo ops early to avoid a sell-out, which always happens at every Supernatural Convention where Jensen and Jared appear!

Photo ops may be used for PERSONAL USE ONLY. Photo ops may not be used in whole or part, disseminated or distributed for profit or otherwise in any way.

Hotel

There are several host hotels within short walking distance of the Convention Center. We have blocks at all of these properties but New Orleans sells out especially on this weekend, which is the tentative weekend of Voodoo Festival (note already checked and it will not disrupt access to venue but is an amazing weekend to have fun!). Our room blocks will become active in the coming months and we are working on opening them up along with web links as soon as possible based on the hotels’ internal reservations systems. We’ll let you know when the hotels are ready to book rooms so you can get special lower than normal room rates, it's a bit early at the time of this writing (Dec. 13, 2015)

Supernatural Creation Stands Supernatural Creation Stands

Creation Entertainment is proud to announce the launch of its new online store in partnership with the actors we all love: Creationstands.com.

Inside you'll find great Supernatural merchandise - new T-shirts, posters and character calendars (like the Winchester Brothers) - much of which is designed by incredible fan artists!

Schedule

Shows start about 10 or 11 in the morning and run till about 6 or 7 at night. But they can start earlier and/or end later if necessary to accommodate an actor’s schedule for autographing and photo ops. The hour-by-hour schedule is posted late in the afternoon (California time) on the Wednesday before the convention.

 

ALL TICKETS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE AND NON-EXCHANGEABLE.

All guests and scheduling are tentative and subject to change.

We are not responsible for orders that are rejected during processing that may be due to customer errors (usually caused because the customer does not complete the entire ordering process to the very end), credit card failures (usually caused when there is not enough funds in an account or the credit card company rejects the charge for any number of reasons including out-of-state ordering or unfamiliar ordering to the customers’ general pattern), or system errors during transmission of the order.

Creation assumes no responsibility for typographical errors or inaccurate information provided by convention venues. All dates, venues and guests are considered tentative and subject to change. Check back frequently for updates. We are also not responsible for computer glitch problems which mistake prices or in the case of overload will turn down orders, both of which have happened once or twice in the decade or more than we’ve had our website running at this level.

NOTE: ALL TICKETS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE AND NON-EXCHANGEABLE. ABSOLUTELY NO AUDIO OR VIDEOTAPING ALLOWED AT ANY CONVENTION. Still photography is for personal use only - public dissemination and commercial use strictly prohibited.

HARASSMENT POLICY: Creation Entertainment is dedicated to providing a safe and harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of race, age, religion, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, or physical appearance. We firmly believe in the ideals of one of our mentors, Star Trek’s late and beloved creator Gene Roddenberry.
We do not tolerate harassment of any kind from anyone. Patrons violating these rules may be expelled from the convention (without a refund) at Creation's discretion and hotel security may well be called in to facilitate this response. If you have any issues with anyone, please ask to speak to Adam, Gary or Stephanie immediately. One or more of them is available at each of our conventions and they can be reached through registration or by the convention MC/host. Issues of this importance should not be handled by our volunteers, as great as they are.

By attending Creation events you agree to allow your image to be used on our website and in news documentaries or stories, either filmed by Creation Entertainment or other entities.

All ticket prices are subject to change, please order as early as possible.

In the unlikely event of a cancellation of the convention, or a date change, Creation Entertainment is not responsible for refunding airfare or any other costs other than the payments made directly to Creation Entertainment for ticketing. Also in the unlikely event, due to weather, transit issues or last-minute illness or other reason given by celebrity, an advertised guest does not make their appearance at the convention, Creation Entertainment is not responsible for any refunds other than separate specific to the guest autograph tickets or photo op tickets. In the extremely rare chance that a guest does not finish his or her autographs or photo ops (which has only happened in a handful of cases over 40-plus years, always due to something out of our control) Creation Entertainment will only be responsible for the refund of the separate autograph or photo op ticket.

In the extremely rare case (which has never happened before) that our computer systems accept more tickets than we have allotted for we would refund ticket money to the last several people (in order) who did manage to get a confirmation or ticket. As we've said it has never happened but we want to have a fair scenario in place it if does occur.

Flashes occur from phone and cameras often during stage presentations. If you are sensitive to such lighting please be advised to take the necessary cautions.
