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 news and 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.
