Ticketing, parking, mask requirements and more

The world’s largest tabletop gaming convention returns to Indianapolis this week, as Gen Con Indy takes over the Indiana Convention Center.

Thousands of gaming enthusiasts will flock to downtown Thursday through Sunday for the venerable event, now in its 19th year in Indianapolis and 54th year — though the event was overall canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Here are some of the nuts and bolts of this year’s Gen Con for anyone planning to attend or looking to avoid the crowds downtown.


Tickets are still available through gencon.com: $125 for a four-day pass, $65 for Thursday or Friday tickets, $80 for Saturday and $16 for Sunday. Kids under 10 get in free with a ticketed adult.
