Con of Thrones Comes to Nashville

By Mlgagne

This summer, Winter is Coming to Nashville! The first ever Con of Thrones will be held from June 30 to July 2 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center, a three-day celebration featuring programming for fans of Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice and Fire.

The con will host special guests such as Carice van Houten (Melisandre), Iwan Rheon (Ramsay Bolton), Kerry Ingram (Shireen Baratheon) and Miltos Yerolemou (Syrio Forel), with more guests being added in the coming weeks. Other highlights will include panels, an exhibit hall and special nighttime events, such as a concert on Friday night.

Tickets to Con of Thrones are still available, as well as separate autographs and photo ops for many of the special guests (remember: a ticket to the con will be required for entry). And while Con of Thrones’ room block is currently sold out at the Opryland, attendees can still secure a room at Hyatt Place for a special rate.
