If your child is under the age of 5: 

There is no cost for children 5 and under to attend Anime Expo. While they do not require a badge, we do have wristbands available for pick-up in the Registration Area that can assist with identifying your child in the event that they wander off and get lost. These wristbands are optional; though we do highly recommend them as a safety precaution.

If your child is between the age of 6-13: 

Please purchase a child badge; child badges have the same access as a 4-day badge.

Attendees aged 13 years old and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 18 for the duration of their time at the event. The adult parent or guardian must have a valid Anime Expo badge to attend the event. Child badges can be purchased with a 4-day or 1-day general attendee badge. No 1-day child badges are available.

If your child is age 14 or over:

Anyone 14 and older must purchase a 4-day or 1-day general attendee badge.

Attendees under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult to pick up their badge. We recommend attendees ages 14-17 have a parent or guardian close by for the duration of the event.
