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.
