Description

This registration ticket is valid for one person to attend the main PUDDLE event on Saturday, June 11, 2022.

If you need to make any changes to your registration information after checking out, please Contact Us. You can also leave a note at checkout if you will be helping a vendor or volunteering during the event.

Each Ticket Includes:

  • one seat at a guest table for you to display your dolls
  • a badge with exclusive artwork, printed with the name of your choice
  • a door prize of your choice
  • access to all vendors, workshops, and contests
  • option to add pizza buffet lunch (+$16)
  • an exclusive, premium gift bag filled with donated goodies for you and your dolls!

All PUDDLE attendees must agree to abide by the Code of Conduct – new in 2022.

Vending at PUDDLE?

If you think you want to vend at PUDDLE 2022, don’t buy your ticket just yet! Our vendor table fee comes bundled with one ticket. Submit your Vendor Application instead, and we will review as soon as possible. (A ticket will be held for you while your application is under review.)

Add A Lunch!

Streamline your PUDDLE experience by adding on the pizza buffet lunch served immediately next to the ballroom for an additional $16 per person.

Pizza buffet lunch includes all-you-can-eat pizza, salad, and a drink. Your indication of omnivore, vegetarian, or cheese pizza does not limit you to eating only that kind of selection — it just helps us to make sure we have enough of each kind available. If you have additional special dietary needs, contact us BEFORE paying for your pizza buffet access to ensure that your needs can be met.

You may also purchase lunches separately after registering, if needed.

Registration

Fees help us cover the cost of the meeting room, additional prizes, and other PUDDLE expenses. It would not be possible to reserve the full ballroom and both side meeting rooms of the Holiday Inn Chicago-Elk Grove without advance registration fees!

There will not be tickets available at the door. Please register in advance instead.

The Pullip and Dal Doll Lovers Events welcomes people of all skin colors, all religions, all cultural and ethnic backgrounds, all abilities and disabilities, all gender identities, and all sexual orientations.

Doll lovers of all ages are welcome to attend. If you are 13 or under to age 10, we suggest that an adult accompany you to the event, though they are not required to buy their own ticket and stay in the room. If you are 9 or under, you must be accompanied by a paid adult. Very small children (3 and under) are allowed to attend without paying a fee. (We do discourage attendees from bringing small children because there are many tempting, fragile items to touch and it is hard to fully participate in PUDDLE with a small child. However, we know sometimes there is no other way for a parent to attend. Young children will always be able to sit with their parents but will not have room at a guest table for their own toys and activities.)

If you need accommodations for a disability, please contact us in advance so we may make adjustments.

No. PUDDLE is small enough that we fulfill registration individually at the event, without needing paper tickets.

We will have a list of all registered attendees at the event. All you need to do is tell us your name! Check in begins Friday afternoon with badge and door prize pickup. Gift bags are only distributed on Saturday.

Tickets are not available for purchase at the door, so make sure to purchase your registration in advance.

There will not be an official wait list.

You may still purchase tickets from someone who has extra or cannot attend, up to one week before PUDDLE. Transferred tickets cannot be sold for more than the original purchaser paid. No transfers will be made within the week before PUDDLE.

We suggest checking the following locations to find secondhand tickets:

Purchasing tickets from a third party is taken at your own risk. PUDDLE accepts no responsibility for any problems with secondhand ticket sales. However, if you are concerned that someone may be selling tickets they don’t have, or for more money than they originally paid, please contact us so that we may investigate.

Tickets for PUDDLE 2021 have a special refund policy: Tickets purchased between October 2019 and February 2021 are refundable for any reason up to 1 week before PUDDLE 2021. Tickets purchased March 2021 and later are not refundable and follow the normal policy below.


Due to the small-scale nature of the event, we cannot refund tickets. However, your ticket can be transferred to another person if PUDDLE staff are notified of the transfer no later than one week before PUDDLE. (If you buy a secondhand ticket, make sure you contact us to tell us what name you want on your badge.)

Transferred tickets cannot be sold for more than the original purchaser paid.

Yes. Everyone who will be in the meeting room is expected to pay the fee and receive a nametag, for space and security reasons. There is a lot to do in the Chicago area, so people who are not interested in PUDDLE may want to find other activities.

If you are bringing a child who is 13 or under to age 10, we suggest that you accompany the child to the event, but you are not required to buy your own ticket and stay in the room.

If you are bringing a child who is 9 or under, you must purchase your own ticket and accompany the child to the event.

Only very small children are allowed to attend without paying a fee. (We do discourage attendees from bringing small children because there are many tempting items to touch and it is hard to fully participate in PUDDLE with a small child.
