Attendees can look forward to an extensive program of presentations covering all aspects of geek culture, including steampunk. If you can’t make it to Atlanta, this year’s convention will offer multiple tracks of virtual programming.
The organizers will also reduce room capacities, eliminate onsite membership sales, and limit the audience for the Dragon Con Parade. They expect attendance to be half that of earlier conventions. But they’re also offering streaming memberships.
Marquis of Vaudeville, Valentine Wolfe, Jess-O-Lantern, and The Cybertronic Spree will take the stage at the geek culture event. The organizers expect a lower turnout this year and will have online programming to accompany the in-person convention.
Organizers plan multiple channels of streaming content, including music, panels, and more
Dragon Con is happening online, and steampunk fans will find lots of programming for their entertainment and edification. The schedule includes musical performances as well as steampunk-themed panels and workshops. Content will stream for free.
