November 10 — Hamacon MiniCon — Huntsville, Alabama
Hamacon stands for “Huntsville & Madison Anime Convention” aka we’re the Rocket City’s anime con! We run two major events a year, a three day full fledged con in June, and a one day con in November. Either way, we treat you with tons of amazing events and panels, a big ol’ gaming area for both video games as well as the tabletop variety, a Dealer’s Room, an Artist Alley, Cosplay, and more! Not to mention, we try and sprinkle as many smaller events we can throughout the year as well.
Major events include a cosplay contest, anime viewing room, gaming, and more! Learn more at: http://hama-con.com/
November 10-11 — Stranger Con — Nashville, Tennessee
Stranger Things captured everyone’s attention when it debuted in 2016 with amazing performances, intriguing mystery and its Steven Spielberg/Stephen King vibe. Drawing on ’80’s culture, horror, and the all too familiar experiences of being a nerdy kid, the show managed to be fresh and exciting while feeling familiar and relatable. There’s no way we at Creation will ever look at Christmas lights the same way again!
We couldn’t be more excited to bring you Stranger Con in Nashville, a convention that celebrates a show we love so much, and the people who make it what it is. We will bring you the stars of Stranger Things, off the screen and in person for two days full of excitement, music and fun! Meet your favorite actors from Stranger Things and interact with them in ways you never thought possible. Don’t worry, we didn’t invite the Shadow Monster.
Major guests include Millie Bobby Brown, Noah Schnapp, Brett Gelman, Chester Rushing, and more! Major events include a cosplay contest, trivia game, karaoke party, and more! Learn more at: https://www.creationent.com/cal/stranger_nash.htm
