Every year, Dragon Con throws a parade that’s the talk of the town—and 2022 is no exception!
Starting at 10AM on Saturday, the Dragon Con Parade will march down Peachtree Street and around the main hotels. The route runs from Linden Avenue down Peachtree to International Boulevard, then turns back north to end along Peachtree Center Avenue, between the Hyatt Regency and the Marriott Marquis. This year’s parade is open to all spectators, no Dragon Con membership necessary.
For 2022, all parade participants were required to pre-register. Parade participants should check in near Convention Registration at the Georgia Ballroom in the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel. Check-in times are Thursday 10AM–10PM and Friday 9:30AM–8PM. A shuttle for parade participants only will run 7:30AM–9:30AM on Saturday, picking up at the Marriott Marquis back driveway (between the Hilton Atlanta and Marriott Marquis) and will drop off at the corner of North Avenue and Courtland Street.
Parade participants may also ride the parade shuttle, which also stops at both locations. This shuttle will run 7:30AM–12PM on Saturday. The shuttle map is available in the maps section of the Dragon Con app and at this link. The regular Dragon Con shuttle routes will resume after the parade (link available in the sidebar at right).
