The Origins Ribbon Program is a great way to play in an area for one price for the whole show! Purchasing a ribbon allows you unlimited play in events or areas covered by the associated ribbon. You can also get tickets to associated events at no cost. The registration system will automatically discount your event tickets if you purchase the ribbon first then add associated events to it. Seating for ribboned events are prioritized as follows. 1. Ticket holders (this includes $0 event tickets purchased with a ribbon), 2. Attendees with ribbons (do not need generics or tickets), 3. Attendees with generics.
The following is a list of 2016 Ribbons:
