Since this a convention to only the biggest and most treasured fandom currently in existence, tickets sold out about ten minutes after sales opened. However! It’s good to remember, “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the light.” So here’s some light for you: the DiaCON Alley of the Ozarks Facebook page is having weekly ticket giveaways up until the event, you just need to follow them. You can also sign up on the waiting list in case more tickets become available. If you’re on the waiting list then you’ll be first in line for next year’s event. You may need to take a sip of Felix Felicis, but the chance of experiencing the wizarding world in Arkansas is possible!
