I am Under 16 Years Old/Do Not Have a Form of ID, Why do I Need a Guardian to Sign In with Me?
Kokorokon is held in St. Louis, the heart of a large-sized metropolitan area, and we would not want anything to happen to any of our attendees. Minors are always welcome to attend the convention, but Kokorokon is an entertainment event, not a babysitting service. We encourage parents to accompany their kids when at the convention, and suggest that families take some time while in St. Louis to see some of the attractions in the local area. We have no way to verify identity for registration if an attendee does not have a valid, identifiable form of ID, so we require that attendees without IDs have a friend (18 or older) or parent/guardian to sign in with them.
