The Alternate and Historical Fiction Track is the home for movies, TV shows, musicals, books and other media about true history, could-have-been history, never-was history and the stories that jump between. We’ll mix together time periods and time travel for all fans of historical fiction, alternate histories and every flavor of steampunk.
Our fan panels feature discussions of historical favorites like Vikings, The Crown and Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, time-traveling pieces like Timeless, Travelers and Outlander, and even shows that look at events that never happened like the Man in the High Castle.
We’ll have panels exploring all kinds of subjects of interest to the history and historical fiction buff, including the history of spies, Victorian death customs, pirates in popular media, forgotten women of history, and many more. Our costuming series will focus on creating a perfect period look from hair to accessories.
We’re excited to host another year of singalongs to popular musicals, including Hamiltunes and The Greatest Showman. And we’ll continue to enjoy our favorite events including the Annual Dragon Con Tea Duel, Splendid Teapot Races, the Temporal Empress’ Ballroom Dance, and the Yesteryear Lagoon Pool Party.
Finally, we’ll dance away the last night of the Con with the Mechanical Masquerade: Revolution! This year, our annual track party is revolution-themed as “A Story of Tonight” and we encourage you all to wear your best military, resistance fighter, or dystopian garb from any era as a variety mix of spectacular DJs and dancers keep us entertained. Our track truly has something for almost everybody!
