Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2022 is almost here and it lands during unprecedented times that have forced changes to the usual setup for getting into the convention. Having a badge isn’t the only requirement this year as new safety protocols for COVID-19 protection are also in place.

For the most up-to-date details on getting into the convention and regarding vaccination requirements, you’ll want to check out the official site. But below is a quick breakdown of helpful information on what you need to gain access into Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2022.

The convention requires all attendees, exhibitors, media, guests, and show management staff to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 or proof of a negative antigen or PCR COVID-19 test to enter.

Getting a Clearance Wristband

A clearance wristband is required to gain admission to Star Wars Celebration on all days of the convention. To get one you need to:

  • Show proof of vaccination
    • Proof of full vaccination with an authorized or approved vaccine must be accompanied with a photo ID.
    • While having your vaccine card is an acceptable form of proof of vaccination, Star Wars Celebration is encouraging participants to use CLEAR Health Pass for quickest verification. The whole process is free and takes a few minutes to setup ahead of your visit. You will need to take a photo of your ID, your vaccination card, and yourself to complete the process.
  • For unvaccinated attendees
    • Proof of a negative antigen COVID-19 test conducted no more than 1 day prior to event entry or PCR COVID-19 test conducted no more than 2 days prior to event entry. May the Force be with you.

Getting Your Badge On-Site

If you need to pick-up your wristband at Will Call, there’s an offsite wristband location at the Anaheim Marriott (700 W Convention Way, Anaheim, CA 92802) in Marquis Ballroom on the first floor that will make it quick and easy for you to verify your vaccination status or provide proof of negative test and receive your wristband. You can then pick up your badge at Will Call in that same location.

If You Already Have Your Badge

You can head to the same Anaheim Marriott Marquis Ballroom location described above to obtain your wristband OR you can utilize the secondary wristband check location outside the Anaheim Convention Center on Katella Avenue.

Face Covering Requirements

At this time, everyone must wear an approved face covering at all times while inside the venue and while attending Star Wars Celebration. For more details on approved face coverings, please visit the official site.

Arriving by Rideshare

If you are arriving by ride share, you will need your driver to drop you off at the designated area on Katella Avenue or at the Anaheim Marriott to obtain your clearance wristband. The Transit Plaza drop off location is for ADA vehicles only.
