Firefly 2017!  Tickets for Sale Now.

If you haven’t registered yet, RIGHT NOW is the best time to sign up and get yourself on the waitlist.

If you have a ticket offer, pay for it within five days or the next person on the waitlist will get it!

If you missed the payment deadline for your ticket offer and want to go to Firefly, log on to and hit the button to add yourself back to the waitlist.

For Firefly 2017, the last day you can purchase a ticket is Saturday, July 1st, until 11:59pm.  This transaction is possible online only.

This year Firefly is Tues 4 July through Sunday 9 July 2017, in Vermont, with around a thousand participants.  Tickets cost $80.  Parking passes are $30 per car, and bus tickets from Boston are $45 round-trip/$30 one-way.

If ticket cost would keep you from participating in Firefly, you can apply for a Scholarship Ticket.

Registration for the Ticket Lottery opened on 1 April and is closed.  The Lottery was held on 24 April.  If you register now, you’ll go straight to the waitlist in the order you register.  So register now to get your ticket earlier!

Register online at  The login has been changed from last year–you’ll make an account (with your own password!) which also allows you to register online for volunteer shifts.  If you have a volunteer account from last year, you can use that.

A super short version of what to do right now is available: Tickets TL;DR.

Information about all the details of the ticketing process is on the Omnibus Ticket Information Page.

There are no ARTifacts or Intentions this year, but you’ll still need to send your release form in the mail.  See the Postal Mail FAQ page with questions.

The ticket process works similarly to last year:

  1. Each participant seeking a ticket signs up on the Firefly Ticketing website and confirms their registration by snailmailing in a signed release.
  2. After lottery registration is closed, the lottery is held on 24 April to put all registrations in random order.
  3. Ticket offers are sent to the top confirmed entries on the list, and a waitlist created for ticket turnover after that.
  4. Folks who register on the website or confirm their registration after 15 April are added to the waitlist in the order their release is received.
  5. Tickets are non-transferable and tied to your name and birth date. If you can’t attend, you can–and should!–return your ticket for a refund so it can be offered to the next person on the waitlist.

As always, send your questions, comments, concerns, and thematically-appropriate pteranodon pictures (but please, no bribes) to
