The Atlanta Sci-Fi and Fantasy Expo (ASFE)
ASFE’s showrunners are all life-long fans of all things geeky and wanted to provide an opportunity for the community to experience a full-scale fan event without some of the typical expenses. Now in its fifth year, the Expo will again celebrate pop culture creators with a family-friendly event at North DeKalb Mall. Artists, writers, actors, game designers, animators, modelers, cosplayers, content developers, and fans will gather to share their craft, instruct and inspire others to explore their own fannish interests. Held March 9 – 10, 2019, the two-day event features panels, workshops, gaming tournaments, live entertainment and a Vendor Hall/Artist’s Alley. The event is free and open to the public!
North DeKalb Mall
North DeKalb Mall is located at the southwest corner of N. Druid Hills Rd. and Lawrenceville Hwy., just inside I-285 and about 10 miles from downtown Atlanta.
The mall has plenty of free parking and is also accessible via MARTA and the Emory University Cliff Shuttles. The Decatur and Avondale stations (on the Blue line) are the closest rail stops although not within walking distance. Two bus routes service the mall
- Bus 123 at the Decatur Station
- Bus 75 at the Avondale Station
In additional to the mall’s facilities, there are a number of restaurants, shops and lodging accommodations within a 2-mile radius of the mall.
