NO ONE WILL BE ADMITTED TO FURRY WEEKEND ATLANTA WITHOUT A VALID, GOVERNMENT-ISSUED PHOTO IDENTIFICATION. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Minor (under 18) attendees
Quick summary: If you are under 18 years of age as of Opening Ceremonies, you need a parental permission form or a parent of guardian on site when you register. If you are under 13 years of age, you must have a chaperone with you at all times.
Furry Weekend Atlanta will welcome any attendee who wishes to attend our convention regardless of age. The majority of our programming, and all programming during the day, is, at most, PG-13 rated, with much of it being PG. Any registered member may attend any of this programming. However, we do have some “adult” (R+) programs in the evenings and later at night. Attendees under the age of 18 will not be permitted to attend these programs.
Furry Weekend Atlanta will be enforcing a requirement that all attendees UNDER THE AGE OF 18, as of the Opening Ceremonies of Furry Weekend Atlanta 2016, must have a signed, notarized consent form (available in DOC and PDF) on file with Furry Weekend Atlanta staff OR a parent or guardian present when they register at the convention.
International visitors who are UNDER THE AGE OF 18 are still required to have a signed and notarized parental permission form on file with Furry Weekend Atlanta. We have a special international form (available in DOC and PDF) that is designed to be as generic as possible. Furry Weekend Atlanta suggests checking the phone directory under both Commissioner for Oaths and Notary Publics. As a last resort, US Consular Services in the most nations have notaries on staff at consular locations that can take care of it for you as well.
Minors will also need some form of suitable identification, such as a copy of a birth certificate, a learner’s permit or driver’s license, or a passport. Please make sure that the name on your identification matches the name on your permission form.
Additionally, due to COPPA restrictions, all attendees UNDER THE AGE OF 13 are not eligible to register online, and must register in person on the day of the convention. Attendees under the age of 13 must also have a parent or guardian present when they check in at the convention, and a chaperone above the age of 18 (preferably a parent or legal guardian) with them at all times when they are in convention space.
We apologize for the inconvenience, but this is for the safety of all the attendees as well as the convention itself.
Parents, legal guardians, etc., please bear in mind that Furry Weekend Atlanta is not responsible for the conduct of minors at the convention. We are not babysitters and we will not be monitoring or correcting the conduct of your minor (as long as your minor is not violating convention policy). While minor badges will be clearly marked and any programming that may be adult in nature will take place in the evenings and will have door guards to prevent minors from gaining access, and while we will make every effort to see that minors are not granted access, Furry Weekend Atlanta specifically disclaims any liability for anything that may happen to your minor or anything that your minor may be exposed to.
Please direct refund requests to firstname.lastname@example.org before Early Bird Registration Ends. After Early Bird Registration, we will not be able to issue you a refund.
If you have a question about registration, we will be happy to assist you, but we ask that you please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions about registration first before contacting our registration staff.
