Convention Tuesdays: GaFilk / Shadowcon 2022

Welcome to the Convention Tuesdays segment!  Each week here on Geek Alabama, Convention Tuesdays will feature and highlight conventions happening during the upcoming weekend in State of Alabama, or within short driving distances from Alabama such as Atlanta, Nashville, Chattanooga, New Orleans, Jackson, Memphis, and other nearby cities close to Alabama.

Listings come from Southern Fandom Resource Guide


January 7-9 — GaFilk — Atlanta, Georgia

Our physical GAFilk has been rescheduled from 2021 and 2022 to 2023 due to the ongoing pandemic.  After a great deal of discussion, the concom has made the heartbreaking but necessary decision that we will not be holding a physical Gafilk in January of 2022 either. Safety and well-being of our filk family must be our first and foremost concern.

We will be holding some sort of virtual online event to take the place of the 2022 convention.
