Welcome to the homepage for the Southern Fandom Resource Guide convention calendar, a comprehensive listing of Science Fiction, Fantasy, Gaming, Comics, Anime and Pop Culture conventions held in the Southeastern United States. Founded in 1995, the SFRG is maintained by Kelly Lockhart (with able assistance from Jeff Conner) and is updated every Tuesday morning, depending on work and vacation schedules. Be sure to "like" us on our Facebook page to keep up with the latest updates.

Conventions are listed by date, convention name (linked to their website), and city and state where they are being held. If you know of a convention that we do not have listed (or need to correct an existing listing), please send us the relevant information so that we can include them as well. 

For the purposes of this guide, we have configured our coverage region to include: Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, West Virginia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Maryland, and portions of Texas and Missouri.  We also include the Caribbean cruise ship conventions that leave from Florida and Louisiana in the (so far) vain hope that one day we'll get invited to one of the cruise conventions. We'll even offer to tend bar, if that helps to seal the deal.
