Chattacon XLVII

January 14-16

Chattacon is a convention for fans of science fiction and fantasy in all media held in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Chattacon was founded by Chattanooga native Irv Koch, and the first Chattacon was held in January 1976.

Chattacon is a Chattanooga staple, being the one of the first Science Fiction Conventions on the scene, beginning in 1976. From Irv Koch and his buddies gathering to chat about their latest Sci-Fi novel with friends, to the long standing fellowship surrounding the love of Science Fiction Literature, Chattacon has never lost it’s purpose. We love books. We love Science Fiction. We love people. Our purpose remains, even when pushed to change; a focus on literary love. Read something everyday!

Chattacon is excited to provide you with a diverse array of Programming. We have endeavored to invite panelists and entertainers from across many genres and mediums in order to give our fans an amazing weekend. Whether you are looking for in-depth conversations on sci-fi fandom, nuts and bolts writer’s workshops, costuming classes, media podcasts, or author meet and greets, there is something for everyone! Activities for kids and teens are available during the day, and our night time Programming includes The Masquerade, and a Burlesque Performance.
