Event description

Description

For the fifth year, the Atlanta Sci-Fi and Fantasy Expo will celebrate pop culture creators with a family-friendly event at North DeKalb Mall! Artists, writers, actors, game designers, animators, modelers, cosplayers, content developers, and fans will gather to share their craft, instruct and inspire others to explore their own fannish interests. The two-day event features panels, workshops, gaming tournaments, live entertainment and a Vendor Hall/Artist's Alley. This event is free and open to the public!



FAQs

Is this event really free? How can it be free?

Yes! With the exception of the Maid Cafe and some hands-on learning workshops, the event is completely free. The Expo is funded through the support of our sponsors, table sales in our Vendor Hall and Artist's Alley, community donations and the support of our venue-partner North DeKalb Mall.


Why don't you charge?

The showrunners are life-long fans of all things geeky and wanted to provide an opportuntity for the community to experience a full-scale fan event without some of the typical expenses. Currently, we are able to sustain the event without selling tickets.


Aren't they tearing down North DeKalb Mall?

Plans to revitalize the Mall property are still under discussion. The Expo has a firm committment from our Mall partners, Lennar Commercial and Sterling Organization, that we will have a home for the 2019 event.


What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

North DeKalb Mall is located at the southwest corner of N. Druid Hills Rd. and Lawrenceville Hwy., just inside I-285 and about 10 miles from downtown Atlanta.

The mall has plenty of free parking and is also accessible via MARTA and the Emory University Cliff Shuttles. The Decatur and Avondale stations (on the Blue line) are the closest rail stops although not within walking distance. Two bus routes service the mall:

  • Bus 123 at the Decatur Station

  • Bus 75 at the Avondale Station


How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

What's the refund policy?

This is a free event, but we'll be really bummed if you can't come.


Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Nope, just yourself, friends and family!
