Fun, colorful, exciting, entertaining: Chattacon is a weekend of fun
For the past four decades, fans of science fiction, fantasy, comics, gaming, art and music have come to the Scenic City for the annual gathering known as Chattacon.
Starting this Friday, nearly a thousand fans will descend upon the Chattanooga Choo Choo for three days of fun and entertainment.
New York Times bestselling author William C. Dietz headlines the convention, along with award-winning illustrator Scott Grimando, popular “Monster Hunter International” author Larry Correia, and fan-favorite writer Wendy Webb as the “Toastmistress”.
Among the many events scheduled for the weekend are Robot Battles, the Deep Space Lounge Show with Luminous Web, flaming entertainment and fiery feats of derring-do from The Chattanooga Fire Cabaret, music performances from The Molly Maguires, and a special screening of the independent horror film “Attack of the Morningside Monster”.
There’s also a full dealers room with all sorts of interesting things to buy, a curated art show with the latest ion fantasy and science-fiction art, and a round-the-clock consuite with lots of free refreshments and beverages.
Admission is $50 for the entire weekend, which is one of the best bangs for the entertainment buck around town. Get all the details at www.chattacon.org
