Welcome to Convention Tuesdays! Every Tuesday, I will feature and highlight conventions happening during the upcoming weekend in Alabama, or within short driving distances from Alabama.
August 30-Sep 3 — Dragon Con — Atlanta, Georgia
Over nearly three decades, Dragon Con has grown from the little Atlanta convention that defied the rules to one of the largest pop culture conventions in the world. Along the way, it changed the expectations for a successful convention. While small conventions still focus on one or two genres, the largest conventions combine literature, television & movies, comics and gaming, just as Dragon Con did for the first time back in 1987.
Major guests include Christine Adams, Cas Anvar, Peter Capaldi, John de Lancie, Jon Heder, and many, many more! Major events include the Dragon Con parade, wrestling, puppet slam, cosplay contest, and much more!

August 31-Sep 2 — Mephit Fur Meet — Memphis, Tennessee
Mephit Fur Meet (usually just called “MFM”) is an annual furry convention that takes place over Labor Day Weekend each year. What started out as a pizza party on a long weekend in 1997 has turned into one of the longest continually running furry meetups in the country. MFM takes pride in our laid-back family reunion feel, and is an excellent convention for first timers and veterans alike.
