Pop Con YXE takes place May 3 & 4, 2025 at World Trade Center Saskatoon at Prairieland. 

Typically, we start announcing guests a few months before the actual date of the event. However, if there is absolutely something we just can’t keep secret, we will let you know sooner rather than later! 

There are two ways to get a little face time with the object of your admiration. 

1. Purchase an Autograph in the Media Guest Area. Autographs must be purchased through one of our Prairieland staff members located near the Media Guest Area. Autographs can be paid with cash, debit, or credit cards. Present your receipt to one of our Expo Volunteers near the Media guest you have purchased for.

Media Guests will provide an 8×10 glossy photo (included in the price) but you may bring your own items to get signed, if you wish, though that is at the Media Guest’s discretion. Typically, Autograph prices aren’t decided on by the Guest or Agent until they arrive at the show, but they are usually within $10-20 of their posted Photo Op price. Autographs can only be purchased on-site at Pop Con YXE.  

2. Purchase a Photo Op with the guest. Photo Ops are sold in advance as the guests are scheduled for their time. Photo Op prices are posted well in advance.  

Most vendors accept credit/debit, but it is a good idea to bring cash with you. In cases where vendors accept cash-only, there are ATMS on-site at Prairieland, located in the Main Foyer, if you need to withdraw some cash.

The photo op time slots are strictly for photos only. Autographs are not permitted in the photo op area. However, you can get your favourite guest’s autograph at their table during their designated autograph times. 

The autograph prices are set by each individual guest and are not posted ahead of time. 

They are not. Autograph and photo op fees are separate.

Absolutely! Families are more than welcome. In fact, children aged 10 & under are FREE as long as they are accompanied by an adult 18 years of age or older. A maximum of four children per adult. 

Of course! This wouldn’t be much of a community if you couldn’t. Use our Contact page or any of our social media channels to send us a message. 

Not at all. Cosplay is a fun, creative part of our event that many people take part in, but in no way is it necessary in order to experience everything that Pop Con YXE has to offer. 

You sure can. You can have up to four people in a photo, yourself included. 

Pop Con YXE is a fantastic place to meet new friends, be part of an ever-growing community and help geeks take over the world! You can find all the info about becoming a volunteer on the Volunteers page.

Wheelchairs are available for rent at the Information desk for $5 per hour. A cash refundable deposit of $40 is required. Call 306-931-7149 if you would like to reserve one in advance.
