Dragon*Con is the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film in the universe!
With over thirty-five fan based tracks, 3500 hours of panels, workshops, gaming, a parade down Peachtree, film festivals, art show, comics and pop art, nightly concerts and parties, bands and DJs, costume contests, dealers, and exhibitors, all squeezed into four days, Dragon*Con is non-stop FUN!
The ALS Association of Georgia, which is the official charity of Dragon*Con 2012, teamed up with the Atlanta Braves this year to help find a cure for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). A portion of every ticket sale during the convention, which are available online, will go towards helping the charity achieve their goal.
