Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev are coming to a town near you. The successful string of Vampire Diaries conventions from Creation Entertainment continues throughout the summer and fall, and there are plenty of opportunities to meet and greet the hot stars of the hit CW show.

Tickets for the events look like they are going quickly. So act fast, especially if you’re interested in autographs and photo ops with the top stars.

On July 28-29, Wesley and Somerhalder will headline a two-day event in San Francisco at the Hyatt SFO. Gold tickets, which include the best seats in the house, autographs with multiple celebrities (including Wesley and Somerhalder) and a Saturday night dance party, cost $299. For reserved seats a few rows back, plus all those autographs, there’s a cheaper option at $179. General admission passes cost $20 on Saturday and $35 on Sunday (no autographs included).

Autographs with the top two stars are $60 each. Other celebrities attending (each charging $30-$35 per scribble) include Zach Roerig, Michael Trevino, Daniel Gillies, Matthew Davis, Steven R. McQueen and Torrey DeVitto. Photo ops run from $30 to $169 (this most expensive option is for a sandwich photo with Somerhalder and Wesley).

Event highlights: trivia challenge, costume parade and Q&A sessions with each star. Please note: At Creation events, fans need to bring something to be signed. There will be plenty of 8×10 photos and other memorabilia available on site for a nominal fee.

Next, Wesley, Somerhalder and crew roll into Parsippany, N.J., on Aug. 18-19. Tickets are going fast. Gold passes are already sold out. Preferred weekend packages, at $220 each, are still available. Somerhalder’s autographs and solo photo ops are sold out. His sandwich photo op with Wesley is also long gone. If you’re interested in getting a scribble from Somerhalder, it’s best to purchase the preferred weekend package.

On Dec. 8-9, The Vampire Diaries roadshow welcomes Dobrev (autograph: $60; photo op: $89). And, on April 6-7, 2013, the cast will invade Chicago. More dates are likely to be announced.

    PLEASE COME TO Mobile Alabama OR New Orleans OR Orlando ME AND MY FRIENDS ABSOLUTELY LOVE VAMPIRE DIARIES!!!! If the cast came to new Orleans pretty much every single girl in my grade and the grade above me would get tickets and it would be so cool if it was in new Orleans because that is like where Klaus is a lot!
