By the time one figures in transportation costs, registration, lodging, and the money that will be spent on meals and other things, no multi-day hotel-based transgender conference is cheap. We strive to keep our rates low while providing the best experience possible, but we understand attending Fantasia Fair is expensive. It’s an entire week long and  chock-full of events, activities, and meals. Our price per day is competitive with other transgender conferences,, and of course our attendees get far more meals and first-rate food. Still, for many, coming to the Fair will require careful budgeting.

We offer discounts for early registration, and our refund policy is generous. Attendees can register for the entire seven days or for the first half or second half of the week. We offer discounts for partners, and we offer as many scholarships as possible for people who would otherwise not be able to attend.

Cancellation Policy

If you cancel prior to May 1st, there is absolutely no penalty. Until June 30th, there is only a $50 penalty, and even after that our penalties are as low as we can make them without costing other Fair attendees money. There are no refunds after September 15th. There’s a reason for this–in mid-September we must pay for meals, based upon the number of attendees. Once orders are placed, we are committed. We must pay for your meals whether you come or not.

If you are unable to make it to the Fair but have already paid for your registration, you have the option of applying 100% of your payment toward the next year’s Fair.

Refund Amount
Prior to May 1 Full Refund
May 1 through June 30 Full Less $50
July 1 through August 31 75% Refund
Sept. 1 through Sept.15 50% Refund
