If you will be entering into any parts of the convention that require an attendee badge to be shown then the answer is yes. We do not offer a parent discount pass. If your child is 12 or under, you or a guardian will have to be with them at all times. The Guardian must have a standard Anime Blues Con convention badge.
Parents of attendees over 12 years old may wait nearby in the lobby/pre-function area located on the convention floor of the Memphis Cook Convention Center (Exhibit Hall/Ballroom Level 3) before entering our badge checkpoint stations.
