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 longtime Southern fan Kelly Lockhart and is updated on a weekly basis (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. 

Our coverage region includes: Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, West Virginia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Maryland, along with portions of Texas and Missouri. It may not be the most precise definition of "Southern", but it works for us.


With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, local and state governments have been asking everyone to practice social distancing and avoid attending large public events.  We are doing our best to update our calendar with rescheduled dates for postponed conventions, but if you have plans to attend any convention in the next several months, please check with their website or through social media to confirm their status. As it stands now, of the conventions scheduled to take place this month and beyond, many are still in the decision-making process and waiting to see how the pandemic responds to current shutdowns.
