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 29-Sep 2 — Dragon Con — Atlanta, Georgia
Dragon Con is the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction & fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film in the universe. Call us a phenomenon, call us one of the most well attended pop-culture conventions in the country, call us the most fan fun you can have in five days: Dragon Con is where you want to be on Labor Day Weekend.
Major guests include many, many people. Major events include a cosplay parade, cosplay contest, pop artist alley, and many more. Learn more at: https://www.dragoncon.org/
August 30-Sep 1 — 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.
