Policies

You’re at Sonic-Con to have fun. We’re here to make it possible for you to have that fun. For all that to happen, Sonic-Con has a few policies that are necessary for the safety and comfort of everyone. Please comply so that you and everyone else can enjoy the convention.

 

Sonic-Con has programming for children, ages 8-12. The convention cannot accommodate children under 8. No child without a Kids Pass will be allowed entrance into rooms with active programming such as masterclasses, live performances or competitions. Children 8-12 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. With the purchase of each Adult or College/Faculty/Staff Pass attendees can receive one free Kids Pass. This free Kids Pass can be added at the time of purchase. Additional children will require a purchased Kids Pass and a separate completed Registration Form.

Children

When purchasing weekend passes, age is determined by how old you are by March 20, 2020. Military and Seniors (60+) receive College/Faculty/Staff rate, with valid I.D.
