JordanCon’s Bid to Rescue DeepSouthCon 54 Accepted

JordanCon’s emergency bid to host DeepSouthCon 54 in 2016 was accepted at this weekend’s Contraflow V/DeepSouthCon 53.

DeepSouthCon (DSC) is a traveling science fiction fan convention held in the southeastern United States, and is the oldest literary convention in the region.

JordanCon entered an emergency bid to host the 2016 DSC following the cancellation of the ABC DSC that was due to take place next May in Atlanta. The merger with JordanCon keeps next year’s DSC in Atlanta.

JordanCon 8/Deepsouthcon 54 takes place April 22-24, 2016 at the Atlanta Marriot Perimeter Center with guests of honor Catherine Asaro and artist John Picacio. Buy memberships here.

In addition to JordanCon programming, the convention will feature a DeepSouthCon track, a Hearts tournament, the annual meeting of the Southern Fandom Confederation, and presentation of the Rebel & Phoenix awards for 2016. JordanCon will also be administering the site selection for DSC 56.

Also decided this weekend: In a contested race, ConGregate in High Point, North Carolina has been selected to host the 2017 DSC. Second place choice, ConCave in Bowling Green, Kentucky will bid again next year for the 2018 DSC.

  1. So the con has been rescued, but there were no life jackets for the Lampwrighters?

    If they’re feeling generous, maybe JordanCon will offer them a panel on the DeepSouthCon program track.

    Oh man, people are sober enough at ConCave to talk about books? That is easily the booziest con I’ve ever been to.

  4. Great appreciation to the Jordoncon crew for stepping up to host DSC 54. That’s fandom in action, right there. I’m very pleased to know that DSC 55 will be in High Point NC since that’s within easy driving distance for me.
