Two Stranger Con events are just around the corner in the United States with Atlanta, Georgia hosting one between December 14th and 15th and Dallas, Texas hosting a Strangercon between November 16th and 17th. Here’s what you need to know.
Fan conventions are nothing new with Comic Cons being huge landmark events taking place each year. Stranger Con is slightly different in that its primary focus is purely Stranger Things. If you’re a fan of the show, you can expect the cast to be in attendance as well as specially themed events for the show.
Stranger Con in Dallas, Texas in November
Event taking place: November 16th-17th
Among the confirmed stars to be joining the event include Millie Bobby Brown, Noah Schnapp, Caleb Mclaughlin, and Priah Ferguson among many more.

Stranger Con in Atlanta, Georgia in December
Event taking place: December 14th-15th
Stranger Con in Atlanta will see the same cast lineup as Texas and will take place at Hyatt Regency Atlanta.
Tickets for the Atlanta Stranger Con range from $25 to $45 with a premium first-row seating slot available for $799.
We spoke to Creation Ent to ask them some questions about what they do and their conventions:
Can you talk about Creation Ent and what you do?
We specialize in producing fan conventions throughout the United States, Canada, and Great Britain. We run unique live interactive events with the stars from favorite TV shows and movies focusing on sci-fi, fantasy and horror television series, and films. The company was started in 1971 by two young sci-fi fans and we’ve been producing events as fans for over 40 years!
Can you talk about the StrangerCon, who is it for and the other Netflix conventions you run?
Stranger Things has been a cultural phenomenon that has appealed to classic genre and horror fans as well as an entirely new and young generation of fans. It was an instant hit and we were hooked right from the beginning. It’s been awesome to see a show touch so many generations and that people can attend our events as a family! As for other conventions based on Netflix shows, we are always looking for our new favorites and will continue to grow.
How do the events differ from the likes of Comic Con?
Unlike other fan conventions, we never oversell our venues and we guarantee a seat in the main theatre for all ticket holders to see all guest appearances and attractions. We also offer many different ticket brackets so there is something for everyone!
What is the most in-demand convention that Creation Entertainment hasn’t hosted yet, any Netflix originals you plan on in the future?
We are always looking at new potential events! We listen to all fan feedback and periodically run polls so fans can make suggestions and vote.
Many are wanting more information on Lucifer’s upcoming convention can you give us any details?
No updates on Lucifer just yet! But right now we are looking at our 2020 calendar and hoping to add some new exciting conventions in the near future! We are always open to suggestions!
