While many fans have already gotten their hands on tickets, those who have yet to get their passes still have a chance to do so.

Tickets range in price

With RuPaul’s DragCon being one of the most highly anticipated conventions of the year, attending the event will cost you a little bit of money.

Ticket prices range from $40 for a single day pass to $300 for VIP.

The single-day tickets are currently still available for purchase on Eventbrite and these allow fans to experience a day full of “art, pop culture, and drag” without having to commit to an entire weekend.

The weekend tickets are priced at $70 plus fees, which is a great price for fans who aren’t able to get their DragCon fix in just one day.

For those superfans out there, you still have a chance to get your hands on the Miss Congeniality VIP tickets. Though these are priced at $200 plus fees, they allow you to receive the ultimate VIP treatment.

In addition to receiving early entrance to the event on all three days, the Miss Congeniality VIP ticket also gives fans the perk of witnessing surprise performances, having priority in lines to meeting Queens and other celebrities, as well as 10% off all World of Wonder merch.

While the Miss Congeniality VIP tickets are still available for purchase, the VIP Experience tickets are unfortunately sold out.

No matter which ticket you plan on purchasing, just attending RuPaul’s DragCon is an experience in itself.

From meeting your favorite Drag Queens to connecting with fellow superfans, these tickets are definitely worth the money.

While spending $40-$300 on a convention ticket is not a big deal to most, attending RuPaul’s DragCon will definitely cost you a pretty penny.

If you plan on meeting your favorite Queens at their designated booths, you will have to buy their merch in order to take a photo with them.

While you can pay as little as $10 for merch, once you spend an entire day meeting queen after queen, you’ve already spent a good amount of money.

In addition to that, fans will also have to budget in the cost of food, a hotel room (if you don’t live close to the city), and transportation.

Attendees could expect to spend well into the $1,000 range at RuPaul’s DragCon, especially if they are attending all three days.

While it does sound like an expensive weekend, the experience you’ll have triumphs any amount of money.

Fans who attend RuPaul’s DragCon always have the time of their lives and if you are still on the fence about buying a ticket, just know that this is an event you wouldn’t want to miss out on.
