DragonCon came to Atlanta over Labor Day weekend from Aug. 31 to Sept. 1, 2019. Beginning in 1987, DragonCon has become the most popular pop culture convention in the southeastern United States. Since 2003, the convention has seen a steady increase in attendance of 10-13% every year. With its close proximity to Athens, the convention sees a decent amount of Athens locals as well as UGA students and alumni in attendance.
