This Labor Day weekend, downtown Atlanta will be bustling with superheroes, storm troopers, wizards and zombies. All kinds of cosplayers and convention-goers will fill Atlanta’s streets for the annual multi-genre five-day event called Dragon Con.
Around 85,000 attendees who hail from all 50 states and some foreign countries are expected this year, according to Dragon Con media relations. Events will be held in five Atlanta hotels, two AmericasMart buildings and the event venue, 200 Peachtree, which is new for this year.
Navigating the convention can be daunting, especially for first-time attendees, so we have put together a guide to help you find what you are looking for.
The Dragon Con app has maps of each hotel and AmericasMart locations as well as a tool where you can type in a nearby landmark and the place where you are trying to get to. Hotel room numbers are also provided in “Events” section of the app.
The embedded map is divided into different categories, including fan tracks, major events, gaming, photo ops and shopping and food, to help you narrow your search. Click on each layer to find these categories, or simply click on the “General” category to for all the major locations as well as MARTA and food court information.
As a note, some events for the fan tracks will take place in different locations than where the tracks are listed on this map. The locations listed are where many of the fan tracks’ events will take place, but locations may vary. Check the app to be sure.
