Who needs a badge? Does my child need a badge?
All attendees 6-years-old and up need a badge to take part in Anime NYC. Children 5-years-old and under are welcome without a badge.


Avoid Being Sammed

To avoid being scammed, please do not buy badges off social media or unauthorized third-party sites. Fans have been scammed previously, and we are unable to refund fans for counterfeits or replace them with real badges. Anime NYC will again partner with Lyte to bring back our official badge exchange program for 2024 so fans can have a safe place to buy sold-out badges and fans who can no longer attend, an official place to be matched with fans looking to purchase any sold-out badges.

Please be aware that badge pricing will be higher on Lyte as it is a service and there is a cost associated with providing it, but all costs are included in the prices listed on the Lyte website. There are no additional fees charged to fans. The Lyte Request price you see when you request a badge is the total amount you will be charged if Lyte is able to provide you with one.

Anime NYC takes place in the Javits Center on Manhattan’s West Side. Located at 445 11th Ave, the Javits is just blocks from Times Square, Grand Central, and Penn Station. The 7 Train’s Hudson Yards station is right across the street!
