Members may request to have their badge mailed to them. This is optional and must be requested using our online form Between May 31st and  June 21st. Requested badges will be mailed out on June 24th. More Details to Come.

A reminder email via Eventbrite will go out when mailed badge opt-in opens.

Children and members 17 years or under must be accompanied by an 18 years or older adult at all times. The adult must have a valid ID (drivers license, state-issued photo ID, passport, or military ID). We ask that you print the adult chaperone’s name and phone number on the back of the badge in case of an emergency.

Your badge allows you admittance to all AnimeFest convention activities. It identifies you as a member to the convention and hotel staff. It must be worn visibly and above the waist at all times in convention areas.

Yes, but be advised we may ask you to remove any masks if we need to check a photo ID against the real face. We also ask that you have your photo ID and/or your invoice out and ready for us when you step up to the Registration booth to expedite the process. Please avoid carrying large props in line.

The badge name is the name you’d like to be called while you are at the convention. It can be your full name, a nickname, an anime character’s name, your gaming handle, etc. Obscenity, vulgarity, and slurs regarding race, gender, or sexual preference, in any language, will not be tolerated. Please limit your badge name to 20 alphanumeric characters please. Any punctuation marks or Japanese characters will not be printed on the badges.

You can always view your invoices by logging into your EventBrite account.

You may pick up another person’s badge but you will need BOTH a printout of their paid Invoice AND a photo-copy of a valid ID (drivers license, state-issued photo ID, passport, or military ID).

The convention is the annual meeting for AnimeFest members. There is no admission charge, but you must be an AnimeFest member to attend. Membership is open to anyone for a fee. Memberships can be revoked if you violate our rules. Most memberships are annual, but we do offer one day memberships during the convention.
