2020 Southern Fandom Convention Calendar

We have done 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 social media to confirm their status.

Also of note: many conventions are attempting online-only "virtual" cons for 2020. However, as many of these are still in development, we are only listing the in-person conventions to keep things from getting too confusing (or inaccurate).
