This is the news you’re looking for.
Dragon Con will be live and in-person from Sept. 2 to Sept. 6, 2021. And, Dragon Con Goes Virtual will be back online, streaming tons of Dragon Con goodness to a platform near you. It’s a hybrid approach that let’s every fan choose their own adventure.
We all know that Dragon Con is awesome and we all need a break from the reality of the past 15 months. Our goal, as always, is to have a safe and fun convention. This year, protecting the health and safety of our fans, volunteers, exhibitors, and guests as well as the hotel and restaurant employees who help make it all work means that we will have to make some changes.
The very best part of Dragon Con is the community. We know that you have each other’s backs, that you care for your fellow fan, and that you will follow the rules because it’s the right thing to do. We trust you to make good decisions.
As the nation continues to emerge from the pandemic, the rules and expectations are changing fast. We are working closely with the public health officials at the Georgia Department of Public Health, the Fulton County Health Department and the experts hired by our hotels to establish a set of health and safety protocols. We don’t know at this point what these ground rules will look like by Labor Day, but we are committed to communicating them as soon as the plan is finalized and at least 30 days before the convention.
For those who want to stay home, we have another episode of Dragon Con Goes Virtual, featuring overlapping coverage of the live convention and exclusive programming just for the platform from our amazing fan tracks. For those who missed it, last year’s version of Dragon Con Goes Virtual was unbelievable, with multiple channels of programming across three different platforms. Like the live convention, this year’s virtual convention will be smaller but packed with the same goodness including streaming, a virtual marketplace with artists and vendors, and so many opportunities to connect and interact on our social platforms it will make your head spin.
We’ve established this site to include updates and a running list of FAQ as we develop answers to them. Remember the information on this page is ever changing and incomplete at this time. To see how much things have changed in the past month is staggering and so positive that it gives us great hope moving forward, however, we know that flexibility is key this year and we are using it as a guiding principle in planning a wonderful and safe 2021 event.
And no, the app isn’t ready. We’ll let you know.
