ECCC Show Guide: Bringing the Kids

Emerald City Comic Con is the perfect way to spend the day nerding out as a family; there’s plenty for kids big and small to see all across the Show Floor and the best part is…kids ages 5 and under go free with an adult ticket holder!  

See them marvel at cosplayers sporting their favorite character’s attire, join in the fun with a super cool costume of their own, or take part in one of our many interactive sessions…they won’t be bored!

With so much to see and do across four days, we all can get tired as we cross off our ECCC bucket list. Rest, relax and reset in one of our personal reset rooms located on the 3rd and 4th floor next to the restrooms, or in the Quiet Room in 326. Reset rooms may be used by folks and families on a first come-first served basis, while the Quiet Room is a community space for all seeking some calm.

What is there for kids and families at Emerald City Comic Con?

Family HQ at ECCC is the place for superheroes of all ages, all weekend long! Join us at the Seattle Convention Center Summit building for a family day out and bring along the whole family.


We’re excited to offer fun programming to all members of the family, all-weekend long! Visit our panel list to see which kid-approved programs are taking place at ECCC:

Making your day run as smoothly as possible…

Kids 4-Day tickets are for fans ages 6-12. Similar to other tickets, Kids 4-Day tickets can and will sell out, so be sure to get yours early. Please be prepared to show proof of age onsite (a copy of a birth certificate or ID card is plenty). Once all Kids 4-Day tickets are allocated, no more will be released. If Kids tickets sell out, you can purchase a regular day ticket to attend the show.

Kids 5 and under go FREE, so bring all the little superheroes and enjoy your day out!

Find an ECCC staff member or security guard and we will help you locate your missing party member. We strongly recommend that when you arrive at ECCC, you and your party pick a location to meet in case anyone does get lost (psst..outside one of our Info Booths is an excellent choice)

REMEMBER: If you have a Kids ticket, you can write your phone number right on the ticket so in case someone gets lost, we can call you directly.

All minors under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent and/or guardian.

Sorry, Emerald City Comic Con does not provide child care services on site. We do however have an amazing line-up for your whole family to enjoy.
