Do you have a question about the Jersey Shore Cake & Cookie Convention?

Where are my tickets?

All tickets are emailed to you from Universe.com immediately after you purchased them. They may have ended up in your spam or junk folder, so you can check there. But no worries if you still can’t find them, log into the Universe.com account you created when purchased the tickets and they will be saved in your account.

Does the name on the ticket have to match the name of the person attending?

Nope, the names don’t necessarily matter, we will not be checking IDs, but the scan code on the tickets are important. That will need to be visible to enter.

What do I need to enter the convention?

All people attending the convention, will need to show a paid ticket. You can either print out your tickets on paper, or show it on your phone. Once you have checked in, you will receive a lanyard and that will be your pass to come and go as you please based off the ticket you purchased (1 day vs weekend pass).

Will tickets be available at the door?

Yes, 1 day passes will be available at the door for $30 each.

I purchased a class, what do I need to know?

For all classes, you will be directed upstairs to your assigned classroom. You will just need to check in with your name. No physical ticket is needed. Just a reminder though, everyone must have at least a general entry ticket to enter the convention. An email will be sent out to all students with detailed information very soon. PLEASE NOTE: All classes are upstairs, there are NO elevators in this building.

Will there be food available for purchase?

Yes, there is a concession stand inside Convention Hall that will serve quick snacks and drinks. Please refer to the map on this page for other options, there are LOTS of great places to eat literally within steps of our vendor hall. Food from outside IS allowed to be brought in, so yes go grab some grub.

Where is the parking?

Asbury Park offers many metered spots on the streets and several paid parking lots within blocks of the boardwalk. But if you don’t mind a little walk, there is free parking on many of the streets further from Convention Hall. Using services like Uber or Lyft are also great options!

Are pets and kids allowed?

Asbury Park loves pets, but sorry no animals are allowed in Convention Hall. Kids are great too, but this event is more of an adult friendly environment. All kids ages 3 and above need a ticket to enter, so if you have a child who is really into baking, please feel free to bring. Otherwise, come and enjoy the day with your friends. No strollers are allowed in the venue.
