What was once a small sci-fi and fantasy convention has become one of the biggest conventions in the South.
The 37th annual Dragon Con is coming to Atlanta next week, spanning five days over Labor Day weekend, Aug. 31 through Sept. 4. This year’s event features tracks on everything from anime to costuming to celebrities from every corner of pop culture.
The conference is held in five “host hotels” in downtown Atlanta throughout the day and night: the Hyatt Regency Atlanta, the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, the Hilton Atlanta, the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel, and the Courtland Grand Hotel (formerly Sheraton Atlanta). Sky bridges connect the Hyatt, Marriott, and Hilton hotels, making it easy to travel between them. AmericasMart Buildings One and Two host additional events and activities.
When is the Dragon Con parade?
Mark your calendars for Saturday, Sept. 2, because that’s when the parade happens! The party kicks off at 10 a.m. and goes until around noon. Best part? It’s totally free for everyone, so come join in on the excitement!
