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 onsite for more information.

Children aged 12 or under on July 31, 2021 will not need to have a badge purchased for them for Comic-Con 2022 and may attend as a child with a paying adult. As this is the second year of cancellation, we must now implement a policy where children aged 13 or older on or before July 31, 2021 are not eligible to attend Comic-Con 2022 as a child.6.7.21

If anyone has a jr badge & is now an adult OR was going to be a kiddo but now is a Jr.
Please contact CCI and outline your situation, perhaps they can help.

Child to Junior Info for 2022
« Reply #2 on: March 28, 2022, 09:08:34 PM »
I wanted to make everyone aware in case they were stuck in my situation.  My daughter would have had her last child badge in 2020 & would have converted after con like normal.  Once con cancelled 2020, I immediately contacted CCI regarding the 2021 rollover.  At that time they told me they would honor the 2020 kid badge routine.  Once 2021 cancelled, I contacted again and again earlier this year because my daughter will now be 15!! and in high school.

Here is what they told me:

We understand that some potential child attendees have aged out of the free child badge policy age range for Comic-Con due to the cancellation of our 2020 and 2021 events. As a current Comic-Con 2022 badge holder, we would like to offer you the opportunity to purchase a Comic-Con 2022 badge for your now junior (age 13 – 17) attendee.
 
If you would like to purchase a badge for your junior, please have them create a Member ID at You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login. Once completed, please send us the first name, last name, and Member ID of that junior. In May or June of 2022, we will send you a unique purchase code that will allow you to go online and purchase a junior badge, even though we are currently sold out. Your junior will only be allowed to purchase the same type of badge(s) that their corresponding adult has purchased, ie: single day Friday, or 4-Day no Preview Night, or Saturday and Sunday single days, etc.
 
The deadline to send us the info above is May 1, 2022. We are unable to accommodate requests sent after this date.
 
Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any additional questions. We look forward to seeing you in July 2022!

My nephew turned 13 on August 2021 so according to this, he is still eligible for a Child badge, but I think I should probably have him bring his birth certificate just incase.

That's a good idea. The only time I was ever asked for my children's birth certificates/proof of age was that final year when they were 13 (but had been 12 on the cutoff date). With one of them, the volunteer manning the desk was unaware of the policy and I had to pull it up on the website and show it to her, then use the BC to demonstrate that my child had been 12 on the cutoff date.

You may get someonewho is betetr versed on the rules, but it never hurts to make sure.

Hi, I'm in the same situation where my son was 12 when 2020 was canceled and is now 14. Any suggestions on how I might contact someone to be able to purchase a Junior badge for him? I have emailed, tweeted, and IM'd...not sure what else to do.

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login Did you create a member ID for your son? The SDCC UBlog has an article on how to make the transition. Unfortunately the answer seems to be "email them", but at least if you follow all the steps in the article before May 1st, you can prove that if they don't respond to you until later.

I'm in the same boat. My nephew would have been 12 in 2020, but is now 14. We set him up in the system and contacted SDCC. The post quotes them as saying we'll have the opportunity to buy his Junior badge "in May or June," so I don't see any reason to stress. Worst case scenario, I bring him to the Con late Tuesday or early Wednesday and we work it out with Reg there.

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login  I have, thank you. We went to the special edition together, so he has had one for a little while. You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login, I just want to be able to provide him some assurances. I guess we will see.  Thank you both for responding so quickly.

I’ll post here if/when they contact me about buying a badge.

Same boat here. My child would have needed a Jr. badge in 2021 but since there ain't been a badge sale since 2019 how would we purchase a Jr. badge the last couple years ?

I wrote to CCI a few weeks ago but no response yet.

I made sure my now-14-year-old nephew had a Member ID and I contacted CCI before the May 1 deadline.

I just received an email from CCI assuring me that I will be able to buy his Junior badge on or after the second week in June.
