Feb. 27th at 3PM to March 1st at 6PM – Atlanta Marriott Century Center, 2000 Century Boulevard NE, Atlanta Georgia 30345

AnachroCon, founded in 2009, is the premier place in the Southern United States for people to celebrate Historical Reenacting, Alternate History, Steampunk, Sciences, Horror, Etiquette & Indulgence, Fashion, Fabrication, Literature & Media, Costuming and socialize with people of like minds. We strive to bring you the best possible guests and experts in their respective fields so that you may leave the convention relaxed, educated, entertained and wanting more!

We are much more than a science fiction convention. If you enjoy Steampunk Neo-Victorian fashions, Historical Reenacting, Time Travel stories, Classic Horror & Science Fiction, The History Channel, The Discovery Channel, The Learning Channel or Esoteric studies then you will find programming of interest at AnachroCon.

It is about that time again. When Airship Centroid gathers to get dressed up and play some video games. As always mention you are with the event to get the special rate of $7 for unlimited game play.

So there’s where we’ll be, or wish we could be if we weren’t already where we were . . . or something like that. Either way, have a great weekend 🙂
