if we bought tickets months ago, is the costume party included, or do we have to buy an additional ticket for that? It doesn't seem fair.

All tickets include admission to the Gathering of American Gods costume party. We look forward to seeing you in October.

Gathering of American Gods Costume Party Tickets Available!

In addition to the event tickets ($105 weekend tickets; see prior posts for full information), we are now offering Saturday evening tickets that include food stations, admission to The House on the Rock attraction and the Gathering of American Gods costume party. The party includes a costume competition judged by Neil Gaiman himself; winners will experience a ride on the Carousel, which has never before been open to the public. These costume party tickets are $75.

Charity raffle tickets for a chance to ride the Carousel will be available for purchase from the Spring Green Chamber of Commerce during the costume party.

Cash bar will also be available during the party.

Addition to Costume Guidelines

Our guidelines for the costume contest are common sense. Costumes, and this gathering, are PG-13--nudity is unacceptable. The House on the Rock reserves the right to refuse entry to, or to disqualify, whomever we judge to be inappropriately dressed. If you have any doubts about your costume, send a digital picture to tomk@thehouseontherock.com and you will receive a response. We will not share any images sent to us and will delete them from our system.

Panels and Ticketing

If you have any questions regarding ticketing for panels, please contact Tom at tomk@thehouseontherock.com.

Shadow's Ride

This creature is among the wildest conceived by Alex Jordan. A tiger with an eagle's head, it comes alive under Shadow and takes him to another dimension. This is one of the figures we hope will be part of the Carousel contest; a few lucky fans may be able to have this as their mount.
