Advanced ticket purchase is strictly required for admittance. Tickets must be purchased in advance by 3/6/09. Tickets are $10.00 and can only be purchased by calling the Best Western Coliseum Inn & Suites direct at 757-838-5011. The credit card used to purchase tickets must be presented the day of the event to pick up a ticket good for entry. There is a very limited number of these tickets available which are provided on a first come, first serve basis. Once we've reached our capacity, no additional tickets will be sold. Only those who've pre-purchased tickets will be allowed entry. If you anticipate attending with additional friends, please plan to purchase their tickets accordingly in advance. The credit card holder who places the original order must be present with their credit used to purchase their tickets to pick up any additional tickets purchased prior.

The Best Western Coliseum Inn & Suites encourages you to pick up your tickets on Friday, March 6th in order to promptly enter the event on Saturday. This will significantly reduce the amount of time you'll wait to enter the show, assuring you a better chance at purchasing limited edition works by your favorite artists.

As a courtesy to the hotel and artists displaying, no smoking or drinking will be allowed in line or once inside the convention ballroom. There will be designated smoking areas throughout the hotel as well as places to purchase alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

We encourage you to reduce your carbon footprint by walking or carpooling to the event. Due to a lack of spaces, the Best Western Coliseum Inn & Suites discourages the use of their parking lot to attend this event. Accordingly, please plan to park at the nearby Riverdale Shopping Center, adjacent to the hotel, and walk to the hotel.
