Child Badge Policy

Comic-Con Toucan reading a comic book
Comic-Con is proud to offer one of the most generous child badge policies in the industry. Children (age 12 and under) are free with a paying adult!
Children do not need to register for a Comic-Con Member ID to receive a complimentary badge. You may register up to two children per paid adult attendee. Children must be present to be registered for a badge and adults will be required to provide emergency contact information for any child registrant. Please visit the Registration Area when you arrive on-site for more information.

To accommodate the transition from child (age 12 and under) to junior (age 13-17), we have set a static date to determine who is considered a child for Comic-Con 2023.

If they are at least 13 years old on July 31, 2022, they must have their own Comic-Con Member ID created in order to purchase a badge to attend Comic-Con 2023.

If your child is age 12 or under on July 31, 2022, they do not need a purchased badge for Comic-Con 2023. They may attend as a child for free as long as they are accompanied by a paying adult.
