IMPORTANT SCHEDULE INFORMATION***
One Hilton Court,
Parsippany, NJ 07054
See the stars of Orange Is the New Black, off the screen and in person for two days full of excitement, music and fun! Meet your favorite actors from this groundbreaking series and interact with them in ways you never thought possible.
Orange Is the New Black (OITNB) has meant so much to so many people because of the barriers it has been able to knock down, one after another, in every season. From its portrayal of relationships, to tackling issues that set the water cooler buzzing, this show is revolutionary. The writing is sharp, the acting is amazing, and the whole show has become one of the most engaging, and necessary, viewing experiences in the modern age of television.
As fans ourselves, we feel the same way, and have our own unique, powerful connections to the show that give us a reason to come back every season. We are proud to present Orange Is the New Con in Parsippany, NJ on October 6-7, 2018!
Join us in celebrating what makes this show special, and the impact it has on fans and society at large!

Unlike other genre conventions, Creation Entertainment has a strict policy to not "oversell" tickets. Every attendee, no matter what ticket they purchase, will have a seat in the main auditorium to see the major guests and join the main events! We believe in a more personal convention for fans, by fans, that leaves you with memories that last a lifetime!
THESE CONVENTIONS ARE INTENDED FOR ADULTS. ON STAGE APPEARANCES BY OUR GUESTS MAY INCLUDE OFF-COLOR OR INAPPROPRIATE HUMOR AND PROFANITY. CHILDREN ARE WELCOME IF ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT WHO IS AWARE OF THE POTENTIAL CONTENT.
The views and opinions expressed by any talent or participant at, or during the convention are those of the authors and/or the persons appearing on stage, and do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of Creation Entertainment, LLC or any of their affiliated parties.
The incredibly talented Lea DeLaria headlines our Saturday Night Comedy Show! Lea has had a long and very successful career as a stand-up comic and jazz musician before joining the cast of Orange Is the New Black, and will be bringing both of those amazing talents to the stage!
The comedy show is included in many of our amazing ticket packages.
Don't have a package ticket but still want to see the show? No problem! Tickets are only $50 and can be purchased on our site or at the convention. Buy your tickets today as these shows sell out quickly!
Do you have the creativity needed to turn a bland orange jumpsuit into a fabulous, head-turning piece inspired by, or railing against, prison fashion? Can you bring the glam better than anyone you know?
Then we want you for the first ever Cell Block Glam Fashion Show! Held on SATURDAY, come dressed in your best prison-chic, from glitter to glam and tattoos to tiaras, and compete for the audience's applause to win great prizes on the runway! Who wouldn't want a $250 Gift Certificate good for Creation merchandise and the adoration of the audience?
Note: Gift certificates are good for one year from date of issue towards Creation Merchandise only, and excludes convention, autograph, and photo-op tickets.
Our vendor area will feature merchandise inspired by the TV show that we know you'll like! You can expect to find photographs, t-shirts & apparel, jewelry, mugs & glassware, banners & posters, books & magazines, autographed items, and a lot more!
Our vendor area is small compared to a massive “comic con” that covers many properties, and that's how we like it. Our conventions provide a more personal experience, and that extends into the vendor area, to give the fans (and celebrities) a more rewarding show. You won't have to wade through seas of merch you aren't interested in just to find the gold because we bring only the best to our vendor area.
Put your encyclopedic Orange Is the New Black knowledge to work in our famous Yes/No Trivia Competition! Be the last fan standing on stage and you could win up to $1400 in Gift Certificates!
Below you'll find all the ways to attend the New Jersey Orange Is the New Con. We have multiple levels of packages and ticket options to fit any desire and every budget!
We begin selling tickets with our Gold Package and then open up more ticket options the closer we get to the convention. Each level is limited so act fast, and don't let a once in a lifetime opportunity slip through your fingers!

Gold gives you priority registration before any other guests! Get first dibs on exclusive merchandise and any remaining autograph or photo op tickets! Preregistration generally takes place the night before the convention starts and isn't a necessity, but can help make your weekend be as smooth as possible.

An exclusive Gold-only Sunday panel with guests that will be announced as we get closer to the show. Of course these guests will also appear on stage solo during the convention, so no patron will miss out on seeing any guest.

The show schedule is finalized the week of the convention due to flight itineraries and filming schedules of our celebrities. Convention activities usually start around 10:00 a.m., but will often earlier to accommodate one of the stars.
Stage programming ends around 6:00 p.m. or 7:00 p.m. and autograph sessions begin after stage programming is complete for the day. This can run until 10:00 p.m. so PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY!
Signings start later on Sundays, so we recommend that you plan to stay late or stay overnight. The final schedule is always posted on the WEDNESDAY PRIOR TO THE CONVENTION.
Our best advice is to plan for these time variables and check the schedule as soon as it is available. All guests and scheduling are tentative and subject to change.
