DragonCon Parade

  • This location is shown only to members

Join us for the Grand Parade at DRAGONCON! The Parade actually steps off at 10 am...they always want us there early. So come early, socialize, have a snort........and cause some mischief with the Trekies, Furries, and NINJAS!

Here is the official jargon: The parade route is 1/2 mile long and the same as last year. Starts at Woodruff Park (Peachtree and Auburn Ave.), goes north on Peachtree to the Hyatt Regency and then turns right onto Baker, continuing to Courtland and another right turn. The parade ends at the Marriott Marquis' back entrance. On parade morning, vehicles and drivers should be at Woodruff Park no later than 9:00AM. Marchers should be start assembling in Woodruff Park between 9 and 9:30AM. Nothing to be given away this year.....no tossing no handing nothing..per the director! No float this year as we are short a berth, tow vehicle and driver(s). Anyone interested contact Ferguss POST haste! Easily accessable from 5 Points MARTA station, so those who say they can't afford the transportation, well............... See ye' thar and don't forget the RUM!...err I meant to say FLAGS!

    I won't know until the day before if I'll be able to attend, will they be selling the badges early enough to purchase one the morning of?

    Charles, the day pass for Saturday is $50 per person. Better pricing for multiple days. Check out Dragoncon.org for details and membership fees.

    A reminder to those who have attended the parade before and a head's up to those new to this event, all parade attendees will be given a ribbon to attach to your DragonCon Badge. The powers that be frown on those folks slipping into the parade who are not paid up for at least a day pass to the con.
