The “largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction & fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film in the universe” is back! And it’s set to take over Atlanta for Labor Day weekend! Dragon Con has become an institutional part of the ATL events calendar.
Dragon Con’s origins begin in the fall of 1987, and has come a long way since then. Over three decades since its debut, and Dragon Con has grown from the little Atlanta convention that defied the rules, to one of the largest pop culture conventions in the world! Its rule-breaking reputation comes from the unapologetic mix of genres, media, and beyond! Which was fairly rare during its early years.
As one of the most well attended pop-culture conventions in the country, Atlanta is certainly the place to be on Labor Day weekend! It’s the perfect convention for any proud geek, nerd, or combination of both, to express themselves and delve into the star-studded lineup for Dragon Con 2021.
There’s also so much else to do beyond meeting or searching for your favorite stars, with an array of contests, events, workshops, and more. We’re loving the sound of the Voice Acting Masterclass, but we’re most looking forward to seeing the costumes. There are several costume contents taking place throughout the event, from Star Wars to Star Trek, and beyond!
Catch the iconic parade on Peachtree St. on September 4th at 10:00 AM. The convention happens throughout Labor Day weekend, beginning on Thursday 1. Click here for more information and tickets.
