It's an opportunity you can't pass up!

We know you all just dig having our amazing house band SAMURAI FISH on stage the whole weekend, introducing guests and playing interstitial music between events. And as a bonus, we have the awesome musician/singer CHASE COLEMAN, also known as werewolf Oliver in The Originals, singing with the band. They are ready to rock this farewell tour with us!


Karaoke Concert


Have a bewitching moment on stage and sing your favorite songs with some of the stars of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals as YOUR backup singers! It’s hosted by Micah Parker and Chase Coleman. Admission is FREE! The theme for 2019 is “Saved By the Karaoke” – so come as you’re your favorite 90’s character or make one of your own! Dressing up is not mandatory.

Since this is FREE EVENT, you do not keep your same seats you had during the day, but there will be seats in the back if you prefer to sit.

Please note: For those who choose to wait for upfront spots for this event, we do not allow “holding” spots on the wait line for more than one other person. Thanks!

Yes/No Trivia


Our Saturday night LIVE concert has always been a giant hit with the TVD/Originals fans! The concert is complimentary for GOLD, SILVER and COPPER WEEKEND PATRONS. And for all others, tickets are only $35!

The concert features house band SAMURAI FISH, MERCY MODE starring CHASE COLEMAN and MICAH PARKER, plus a special appearance by MICHAEL TREVINO! All guest participants are tentative until show time. 

Note: As mentioned in this description, this event is complimentary for Gold, Silver and Copper Weekend Patrons but as it is a concert the first rows will be removed for standing so held seats during the day do not apply to this event. There will be room to sit however for those that prefer to, in the back and the show is still quite visible and enjoyable.

The SATURDAY NIGHT CONCERT ticket does not include admission to the convention, and you do not need a convention ticket to attend the concert.

Here’s another way to show off your creative talents by entering our famous Cosplay Contest! Held on SATURDAY, you can come dressed as any The Vampire Diaries or The Originals character and compete for the audience's applause to win great prizes! Who wouldn't want a nifty Gift Certificate good for Creation merchandise and the adoration of the audience?

Our vendor area is small compared to a massive Comic-Con type event that covers many properties. Our conventions provide a more personal experience, and that extends into the vendor area, to give the fans (and celebrities) a more rewarding show.

Giving Gifts to Celebrities

We know that many fans like to give gifts to our celebrity guests and we feel this is a lovely gesture. However, it's impossible to accommodate the large amounts of gifts and we do not have an adequate system to accept them at the many different venues. Please refrain from bringing gifts to the convention.

Instead, we are offering the following addresses for fans to send gifts to the celebrities:

Attn: Ian Somerhalder or Paul Wesley
c/o ICM Partners.
10250 Constellation Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90067


Autographs


Having the chance to get in-person autographs from the stars of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals is incredibly rare, and we've worked hard to bring it to you for this farewell tour!

The stars will sign almost any item you bring from home (items that are deemed inappropriate by Creation may not be presented at the autograph table) or you can buy an item at the convention. There will be tons of great photographs of the stars in character as well as other collectibles available at the convention that are perfect for signing.

Have more than one thing you want signed? Purchase multiple tickets and get all of your autographs at once!

Autograph tickets DO NOT include admission to the convention. You must have an admission ticket for the convention on the day of your autograph session to redeem autograph tickets. Also, please note that personal photography is NOT ALLOWED at any autograph or photo op session.

Schedule


Fan Guru

Creation Entertainment is going green by joining forces with Fan Guru (formerly Cosmunity)! Make sure to download the Fan Guru app and you will be able to customize your own schedule for any con weekend you are attending. Fan Guru will have the schedule uploaded on their app after the schedule is posted onto Creation’s website.

Download the app now!




The show schedule is finalized the week of the convention to accommodate flight itineraries and filming schedules of our celebrities. Convention activities usually start around 10:00 a.m. but may begin earlier depending on schedules. Stage programming also usually ends around 6:00 p.m. or 7:00 p.m. and some 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 one day PRIOR TO THE CONVENTION on either WEDNESDAY (for our three-day conventions) or THURSDAY (for our two-day conventions).

Our best advice is to plan for these time variabilities and check the schedule as soon as it is available.




Please note: Most often we do pre-registration the night before the convention (Thursday). It is not a necessity, just a convenience, and it gets full convention-goers (those all three days) their credentials, printed schedules, options to get any autograph and photo op tickets still available, and, of course, first crack at souvenirs. We finalize pre-registration and other scheduling when we get closer to the event and know both the guests itineraries and the hotel’s other bookings. Convention activities usually start at approximately 10:00 in the morning. Sometimes autographing runs into the early to mid-evening, so please plan accordingly. The final schedule is always posted by the Wednesday prior to the convention. While we’d like to present it before that time, it is impossible due to the flight itineraries and shooting schedules of our celebrity guests.



All guests and scheduling are tentative and subject to change.

ALL TICKETS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE AND NON-EXCHANGEABLE.


WOW, it is hard to believe that we have been producing conventions for our fellow fans for 47 incredible years, and what a ride it has been. Thanks to our fellow fans, we’ve loved bringing the stars direct to their audiences!

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.

Creation Entertainment has the right to refuse service to anyone who interferes with the safety and well-being of other patrons, staff, actors, Creation Entertainment and the establishment itself. This includes, but is not limited to, harassment of any kind both in advance and/or at a particular event, illegal activity, unreasonable rowdiness, patrons lacking adequate hygiene and inconsideration to others. Refusal of service shall never be based on race or color, National origin or citizenship status, religion or creed, sex, age, disability, pregnancy or genetic information, Veteran or Military status, marital status, sexual orientation or gender identity, medical condition, political affiliations or activities, or status as a victim of domestic violence, assault or stalking.

 

What you should know...

Customer Support E-Mail: 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: we do not allow alcohol to be present in our function rooms including the main theatre. This includes daily panel events and any night events. We kindly ask, for the evening event(s), you do not bring bags unless necessary. 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 and we will do bag checks. We regret that we've had to take this measure, but we must protect our audience and celebrities and we’ve been advised that this is a necessity. We retain the right not to allow entrance into any of the events to anyone who shows up appearing intoxicated. 

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.

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. 

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. WE’VE NOTICED A PICKUP IN BOGUS TICKETS and well-meaning fans being ripped off by those that have just resold copied tickets. 

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 try to learn 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.

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 can not 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 marshall 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.

Extra Info

In the unlikely event of a cancellation of the convention, or a date change, Creation will not be held responsible for any financial loss associated with the purchase air tickets or hotel rooms that are not canceled (virtually all hotels offer a 24 or 48-hour cancelation policy, so there should be no jeopardy associated with sleeping room reservations). We highly recommend you purchase travel insurance for any non-refundable items like airline tickets. Also in the unlikely event, due to weather, transit issues or last minute illness or other reason given by a 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 hand full 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.

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!

Please do not bring latex balloons of any sort to any of our events, as we have attendees with latex allergies and additionally bursting balloons can be hazardous to people at short range.

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.

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.

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.

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 hand full 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.
