What was once a small sci-fi and fantasy convention has become one of the biggest conventions in the South.

The 36th annual Dragon Con is coming to Atlanta in just a few weeks, and the convention is set to return to pre-pandemic programming and attendance levels. Last year, Dragon Con implemented parade restrictions and slashed attendance to roughly 40,000 — down from 80,000 in 2019. This year, attendance is expected to be 50% higher than in 2021, and the parade is once again open to the public.
