What is Viencon Summer Festival?
Viencon is a convention that focuses on cosplay, photography, and relaxation. It's an event that makes you feel as if you were on vacation!
Where and when will Viencon be held?
Viencon's location is at Centerparcs de Limburgse Peel in the Netherlands. It will be held from Friday August 28th 3:00PM until Sunday August 30th 6:00PM. While Viencon ends on Sunday, the activities and facilities of Center Parcs remain available for everyone until Monday 10:00AM!
When can we check in and when do we have to check out?
You can check in from Friday August 28th 3:00PM and you have to check out at Monday August 31st 10:00AM.
If we’ve booked a cottage with a few people, do we all have to check in together?
No, only the person who booked the cottage has to check everyone in. That person has to print the e-ticket out and have valid ID with them. They will then receive all of the wristbands that can be handed out to the rest of the people in your cottage.
Do I have to wear my wristband?
The wristband gives you access to all events and the pool. Gophers and stewards will check for it frequently so you have to wear it at all times on your wrist. The wristband has to be worn tightly around the wrist, so you can’t slip it off. You’re also not allowed to wear it on your bag or anywhere else but your wrist.
Can I pass my wristband to someone else?
No, when we notice that you’ve cut or manipulated the wristband, we will declare it invalid and you will be denied access to the convention and the cottage.
What if I lose my wristband?
If you can show that you’ve somehow torn your wristband by accident, then you can get a new one provided you have an e-ticket, valid ID, and the torn wristband. You will have to pay a fee of 5 euros for a new one. The new wristband has to be put on your wrist.
If you’ve lost your wristband completely, you can get a new one for 20 euros. We could remove you from the park without a valid wrist band. Please, don’t lose it.
Can I wear my bag at the convention?
Yes you can. We’ve found that it’s a hassle to have to put away your bags. However, safety comes first. So never leave your bag unattended and make sure it doesn’t block any paths. We could check your bag at the Market Dome.
Can I visit Viencon if I’m a minor?
Yes, of course! Viencon is for everyone.
Is Viencon Summer Festival accessible for wheelchairs?
Yes, Center Parcs is accessible for wheelchair users.
Can we bring pets?
Yes, you’re allowed to bring up to two pets with you. There will be an extra fee of 16,50 euro for each pet.
Can I park my car in the vicinity?
