I am planning a trip with our youth club to the convention, all of our members are at least 14 years old and many of us are at least 18 years old. Will we have an issue getting our 14-17 year old members into the convention without a legal guardian present? Is there a permission slip or other form we can make to get our members into the convention?

Hi Zachary,

Thank you for your interest in attending Anime Expo!

Youth participants ages 13 and under must be accompanied by a legal adult at all times during the convention, not necessarily a legal guardian. Any minors age 14 and over do not require a chaperone and will not require a legal guardian to be permitted entry.

If you have any additional questions regarding our Youth Policy, please visit our website here:

We look forward to having you all at AX 2019!
