Minor Policy

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.

16 and 17 year old attendees:

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, 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 most nations have notaries on staff at consular locations that can take care of it for you as well.

Attendees between 13 and 15:

Attendees 15 AND UNDER must have a parent or guardian present when they check in at the convention.

Attendees under the age of 13:

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. Chaperones and guardians attending the convention must also be a registered attendee.

Identification requirements:

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. School IDs are only acceptable as a secondary form of identification.

The name on your identification must match the name on your permission form.

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.
