Check out several ways to be included in the first ever virtual DC. Best of all…IT’S FREE!!! If you’ve seen all the cyborgs, Klingons, fairies, elves, superheroes running around Downtown Atlanta and wondered what it was all about, this is your opportunity to find out.
The Virtual Experience
While it won’t be the same as the live experience, it will allow the DC community to take some time to step off the planet that is currently experiencing an unprecedented global pandemic for four or five days to be among people who get you. People who are just like you. People who truly accept you. And hey, if you wanna cosplay in front of your computer…that’s cool, otherswill be doing the same.
What you can expect is three totally unique and awesome channels running throughout the event plus a whole slew of fun things going on across DC social platforms.
The first channel will feature all sorts of content from years past. Did you miss the John Barrowman panel with his gorgeous TARDIS dress on display? It’s there. Ditto with the first time William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy shared the stage at Dragon Con? That little gem is there, too.
The second channel will feature DC’s track programming, something that sets DC apart from all of the other conventions out there. DC’s 35+ tracks are busy at work generating new content for you all to enjoy 24 hours a day. No matter your interest, it’s there.
The Main Channel will highlight new guest programming, performances from quintessential Dragon Con performers, and two of the biggest and best costume contests DC hosts each year among may other exciting programming items including the annual parade.
Don’t worry, if fan tracks are totally your thing, many of them are hosting a whole plethora of other content on their social media pages. Be sure to bookmark those now and check it out over the weekend! There is SO much to do/watch, that you can hardly decide where to spend your time.

- After content airs live, it will be available on-demand at https://dragoncon.tv/videos. This will require a membership, but we’ve lowered the price to $10 for everyone so you can watch as much Dragon Con content as you want for another year after the live streams end.
