July 5-7 — Hypericon — Nashville Tennessee
We believe the digital world in which we thrive to be most complete when enhanced by the tactile experiences of fan culture. The flip of the page, the roll of the dice, the handshake or embrace of dear friends we have taken on as our family. Our event combines this spirit with the excitement and buzz of the wildly-popular comic-con atmosphere with unique events and a thriving social scene, day and night, to thrill our audience and deliver an experience that transcends both media and culture.
Major guests include Jason Marsden, Matthew Atchley, and more. Major events include a cosplay contest, car show, and more! Learn more at: http://hypericon.net/
