So, your child has asked to attend VidCon…

No need to worry! We’ve got the resources in place to make sure you and your child both have an excellent experience. Check out the information below, and if you have any other questions feel free to browse the FAQ or reach out to us at

Chaperone Policy

Attendees who are 16 years old or older are not required to be accompanied by a parent or chaperone.

Children who are under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult who is 18 years old or older with the same ticket type as the child throughout the entirety of the event.

  • Adults chaperoning children with Community tickets may purchase a Chaperone ticket, which offers access to all Community Track content except meet & greets.
  • Ticketed adults are welcome to accompany the minors they are chaperoning into the Meet & Greet Hall; they just can’t participate unless they’ve entered the lottery.
  • Minors under 16 attending the Creator or Industry Tracks must be accompanied by an adult who has also purchased a Creator or Industry Track ticket.


We take the safety and security of each and every attendee very seriously. Bag checks, RFID portals, and an event-wide security team are just a few of the measures we have in place to ensure your child’s (and everyone else’s) safety. Feel free to browse our Security page for additional information.

Parents’ Lounge

Need a place to chill? If your child is old enough to be at VidCon on their own (16+), but you’d like to stay nearby, sit down, relax, and meet fellow VidCon parents, the Parents’ Lounge is the place for you!

Parent & Child Activities

There is plenty to see and do for adults and children alike. We encourage parents to browse the agenda before the event to put together an enjoyable schedule for everyone in their group.

Children Under 8

Children who are 8 years old and younger do not need their own ticket to attend VidCon, and are able to participate in all activities that their parent or chaperone will be participating in, including meet & greets!
