C2E2 Show Guide:

Bringing the Kids

C2E2 is the perfect way to spend the day geeking out as a family; there’s plenty for kids big and small to see across the Show Floor and the best part is…kids ages 5 and under go to C2E2 for 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!

What is there for kids and families at C2E2?

Family HQ at C2E2 is the place for superheroes of all ages, all weekend long! Join us at McCormick Place for a family day out and bring along the whole family.  

Making your day run as smoothly as possible…

We understand navigating the busy Show Floor with little heroes in tow isn’t always the easiest thing in the world, so here are some answers to frequently asked questions to help you on your way. We’d also recommend downloading the C2E2 Mobile App, presented by Ultrasaber, which contains a helpful map and schedule of everything happening across the weekend. 

Kids 3-Day tickets are for fans ages 6-12. Similar to other tickets, Kids 3-Day tickets can 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 3-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 to C2E2 for FREE, so bring all the little superheroes and enjoy your day out!

Find a C2E2 staff member or security guard and we will help you locate your missing party member. We strongly recommend that when you arrive at C2E2, 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, C2E2 does not provide childcare services on site. We do, however, have an amazing line-up for your whole family to enjoy.
