Is there a theme?

Our theme is Witches Abroad. Not necessarily the book, but all things Witch adjacent.

Do you have to be a member to come to the convention?


Your membership is your ticket to the Convention and all the fun and frivolity that entails. Without membership you won't be able to get a membership badge and without a membership badge you will not be admitted to any of the Convention rooms.

What does membership include?

RavenQuoth, Inc. membership includes entry to all events and areas of the North American Discworld Convention unless otherwise stated, for example the Gala Banquet is a separately ticketed event. Your membership also gives you preferential rates on host hotel bookings.

How do I become a member?

Simply go to our Sign Up page to register as a member.

How do I pay for membership?

If you follow through the membership application you can pay by credit card. International members will find currency exchange rates will be sorted out by their card provider.

What are the different kinds of membership?

Adult Membership: Anyone ages 18* and above is eligible for adult membership. Full members of RavenQuoth are invited to attend all member events and conventions.

Youth Membership: Anyone aged 6-17* is eligible for a youth membership.

Child Membership: Anyone ages 0 through 5* is eligible for child membership. The price is one dollar.

Supporting Membership: Anyone, regardless of age, may be a supporting member. Supporting members provide financial support but are not invited to member events and conventions. A supporting member may, at any time during the membership term, upgrade their membership. The cost of a membership upgrade is the difference between the amount paid and the price of the upgrade membership at the time the supporting membership was purchased.
