VidCon is an all ages event, but attendees who are under 16 years old must be accompanied by a ticketed adult (18+) at all times. Please see our Chaperone Policy below for more information:


Children 8 and under:

Children 8 and under do not need a ticket as long as they are accompanied by an adult (18+) who has purchased a ticket to attend VidCon. Children 8 years old and under may participate in any activities their parent or chaperone will be participating in during the event.


Children between the ages of 9 and 15:

Children between the ages of 9 and 15 must be accompanied by an adult (18+) at all times. Reduced cost Chaperone tickets are available for adults chaperoning attendees participating in the Community Track. This ticket provides access to all Community Track content with the exception of meet & greets. Please note that the Chaperone Track only offers Community Track access, therefore if the child has purchased a Creator or Industry Track ticket, the accompanying adult must purchase a ticket of the same type.


Children 16 or older:

Children 16 or older are not required to be accompanied by a chaperone if it's OK with their parent/guardian. If a parent/guardian would like to accompany their child in any capacity, they need a ticket to attend VidCon. If the parent/guardian is OK with being in the Parents Lounge and in the vicinity of the event, they do not need a ticket. Adults without tickets will not have access to any panels, the Expo Hall, concerts, etc.


Please noteĀ that while VidCon is an all-ages event, what is considered age-appropriate varies greatly from parent to parent. If you are a parent accompanying a minor to VidCon, we encourage you to check out some of the content your child is interested in and build your agenda based on your own preferences. That being said, there are plenty of sessions and activities for attendees of all ages!
