DragonCon 2017: Better Strap In

DragonCon 2017: Better Strap In

Concert Party Band

Dear God, is it that time again? Yes. Yes it is. DragonCon waits in the shadows to pounce you and relieve you of your lunch money once more. Here’s where we’ll be this weekend.

TL/DR NOTE: The Fun Fest is Sunday, September 3rd starting at 8:30pm in Regency V in the Hyatt.

Follow our Needcoffee feed for last minute updates. Where available, everyone’s first mention has their Twitter ID linked up–so feel free to follow folks for their latest weirdness. (Except in cases where they’ve been added to an earlier panel than I first had them–so they’re Twitter-linked on here somewhere. I’m old and lazy.) As always, this list is subject to change without notice or reason or rhyme.

As always, inevitably, there will be formatting and other stupid errors on this schedule. If you find something wrong, just ping me and we’ll get it fixed. DON’T PANIC. Trust me, I’ll tell you when to panic.
