Amelia Con is the first and only “nerd” convention on Amelia Island. We’re bringing you popular media, comic book, game, animation, and pop culture icons, exhibitors, artists, and events from near and far. On September 6, 2014, Amelia Island will come alive with cosplayers and fans celebrating their favorite shows, books, and games. Amelia Con will be a safe, family friendly event focused on culture and education. It will be a unique experience for new convention goers as well as seasoned convention vets. We believe in starting on time, ending on time, and keeping the event organized so that you can make the most of your day.

A convention is a gathering of people who share a common interest. In the case of Amelia Con, it’s for people who enjoy or are interested in anime, animation, comic books, video games, table top games, trading card games, literature, sci-fi, fantasy, costuming, steampunk, and popular TV Shows, books, and movies. For example, most attendees are probably interested in Dr. Who, Fullmetal Alchemist, Soul Eater, Adventure Time, Spiderman, The Avengers, Superman, The Big Bang Theory, Serenity, Pokemon, Yugi-oh, Dungeons and Dragons, World of Warcraft, Star Wars, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, The Pirates of the Caribbean, Attack on Titan, Metroid, Megaman, Final Fantasy, Power Rangers, and so much more! They show up at conventions to purchase things they cannot buy online, hang out with friends who share similar interests, participate in tournaments, meet people who create their favorite media, and attend events that provide them insight into the industry or are just for fun.

Fernandina Beach Recreation Center  - Amelia Con’s Exhibit Hall, Artist Alley, Cosplay Prep Room, Photobooths, and VIP Tables will be located here.  Parking is available at the front, side, and back of the building as well as down Atlantic Avenue.

Fernandina Beach Women’s Club - Located behind the Fernandina Recreation Center, the Fernandina Beach Women’s Club will house our Magic The Gathering Draft Tournament sponsored by Game Over, Cosplay Cafe, and Main Events including panels.  Main events will be held on the stage of the Women’s Club. These events include the Costume Competition, VIP Guest Panels, and other fan and industry panels.  There is additional parking around the Women’s Club. Please refrain from parking in the lawns of the adjacent neighborhood.

    We decided not to go this year after all due to the long drive, scheduling tightness and limited gaming specified. But for those of you who attended, how was it?

    Rudy, it says table-top games but I don't see any that I know of mentioned. Do you know what games they might be?

      There isn't many tabletop games specifically being hosted. However, gaming starts Friday at noon, is on Saturday after 5pm, and Sunday starting at 7am. I'm hosting Red Dragon Inn at 2 on Friday and my fiancé Travis is hosting Shadow Hunters Saturday at 7pm and Race for the galaxy Sunday at 1.

      There are other games being hosted, a small lending library for open gaming and we brought other games as well.
