Registration for badges to PAX West 2017 is now open, the show’s organizers announced today.

As usual, ticketing is handled through a virtual queue on ShowClix. Once you open the page, it will automatically refresh until it determines you’re next in line to buy PAX passes.

PAX West 2017 will once again be a four-day show, running all Labor Day weekend long from Friday, Sept. 1, through Monday, Sept. 4. As is now the custom, three-day badges are not available; interested parties can only purchase single-day passes for one or more of the four days of the convention. PAX’s organizers have raised ticket prices slightly: A one-day badge goes for $48 this year, instead of the $45 that they cost for PAX West 2016.

As of this writing, badges are available for all four days, but they usually sell out very quickly, especially for desirable days like Friday and Saturday. Hotels for the weekend are available through OnPeak.

Update: Ticket purchases are limited to four sets of badges per household. In addition, PAX West-branded merchandise is also being sold alongside the tickets this year. A set of three dice and a throw blanket are each available for $38, while a scarf is on sale for $28.

Update 2 (3:50 p.m.): Saturday badges are gone, and Friday and Sunday passes are “running low” as of 3:49 p.m. EDT, according to the official PAX Twitter account.
