How much does it cost? How do I purchase a ticket?
Your CookieCon ticket costs $279. You may pay with Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express or Paypal through our secure web site at www.karenscookies.net. A link will be provided when that page is available on October 26, 2016. There will also be Pre-CookieCon classes available for additional fees.
Is it ok if we arrive late? What about having to leave early?
While we'd love to have you there for as much of the activity as possible, if you need to arrive late or leave early that's just fine. The format will be pretty loose and open, so this won't be a problem. If you'll get there later than Thursday, just find one of the event staff when you arrive so we can get you "checked in", and get you your name tag, bag, etc..
Will we need to bring decorating supplies? What about cookies to decorate and try some of the techniques being taught?
Supplies and cookies for decorating will be provided - so no need to worry about any of this. Having said that, if there is anything you'd like to bring to use yourself, show others, etc., this would be more than welcome. You will be responsible for keeping track of your stuff though.
Do we have to bring decorated cookies for the Sugar Show contest?
We would LOVE to see as many people bring cookies as possible to contribute to our Sugar Show - but if you simply don't want to, it's not required.
Will there be a shuttle available for hotel guests to take us from the Airport to the hotel, and then back to the airport?
Yes there will! You can also take the light rail. Learn more by clicking here.
If we want to save on the hotel, can we have roommates? How will that be arranged?
You are more than welcome to make whatever arrangements you'd like with roommates. We will not be handling this on our end, but rather we're simply leaving it up to the attendees. The CookieCon Facebook page will be great resources for making such arrangements. Learn more about room rates and multiple occupancies on our venue page.
Will there be vendors there?
Absolutely. Details on specific vendors are coming. Keep an eye on this web site. We will also be announcing them on the CookieCon Facebook page. If you are interested in being a CookieCon sponsor or vendor, please click here for more information.
Will I need to bring a coat or jacket?
Spring in Salt Lake City might be a bit cold - it's hard to tell. Yes, plan on bringing a jacket - especially if you plan on adventuring out much to see the city, find restaurants, etc..
Is this event limited to U.S. Residents?
Absolutely not. We'd love to see anyone come. As long as you love cookie art, we love you! We saw decorators from several different countries at our last event!
I am new to Cookie Decorating. Will everything at CookieCon just be over my head?
We try a hard to cater to decorators of all skill levels. Feedback from attendees has indicated that new and experienced decorators alike loved CookieCon and felt that they benefitted from it. We have even had people attend who have never decorated at all!
When will tickets be available to buy?
October 26, at 7:00pm Mountain Time (6:00pm West, 8:00pm Central, 9:00pm East). Tickets will be available for purchase through Karen's Cookies on. Click here to learn about buying a ticket!
