IMPORTANT SCHEDULE INFORMATION***
SHERATON MUSIC CITY HOTEL
6100 N. River Rd.777 McGavock Pike
Nashville, TN 37214
Stranger Things captured everyone's attention when it debuted in 2016 with amazing performances, intriguing mystery and its Steven Spielberg/Stephen King vibe. Drawing on '80's culture, horror, and the all too familiar experiences of being a nerdy kid, the show managed to be fresh and exciting while feeling familiar and relatable. There's no way we at Creation will ever look at Christmas lights the same way again!
We couldn't be more excited to bring you Stranger Con in Nashville, a convention that celebrates a show we love so much, and the people who make it what it is. Headlined by breakout star Millie Bobby Brown, we bring you the stars of Stranger Things, off the screen and in person for two days full of excitement, music and fun! Meet your favorite actors from Stranger Things and interact with them in ways you never thought possible. Don't worry, we didn't invite the Shadow Monster.
This convention is different from any you've ever been to before. We guarantee you a seat to see all the stars, so there's no camping out or hoping to just catch a glimpse. Your only concern is having the time of your life alongside them!
Saturday and Sunday
Saturday and Sunday
Please note that unlike other genre conventions, Creation Entertainment has a strict policy to not “oversell” tickets. Every attendee, no matter what ticket they purchase, will have a seat in the main auditorium and will see all the guests and join the main events. There is no extra waiting hoping to get in, once you have an admission ticket you are guaranteed attendance, and depending on the type of ticket you purchase you can also often actually pick out your seat in the theatre.
On occasion a day may include a special “Gold” panel exclusive that is for Gold Weekend Patrons only but that usually is just a half hour and the stars that appear there also appear during the day for the entire audience. So every attendee will see every star on stage without worry.
Creation Entertainment has the right to refuse service to anyone who interferes with the safety and well-being of other patrons, staff, actors, Creation Entertainment and the establishment itself. This includes, but is not limited to, harassment of any kind both in advance and/or at a particular event, illegal activity, unreasonable rowdiness, patrons lacking adequate hygiene and inconsideration to others. Refusal of service shall never be based on race or color, National origin or citizenship status, religion or creed, sex, age, disability, pregnancy or genetic information, Veteran or Military status, marital status, sexual orientation or gender identity, medical condition, political affiliations or activities, or status as a victim of domestic violence, assault or stalking. If you have any issues with anyone, please ask to speak to Adam, Gary or Stephanie immediately. One or more of them is available at each of our conventions and they can be reached through registration or by the convention MC/Host.
THESE CONVENTIONS ARE INTENDED FOR ADULTS. ON STAGE APPEARANCES BY OUR GUESTS MAY INCLUDE OFF-COLOR OR INAPPROPRIATE HUMOR AND PROFANITY. CHILDREN ARE WELCOME IF ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT WHO IS AWARE OF THE POTENTIAL CONTENT.
The views and opinions expressed by any talent or participant at, or during the convention are those of the authors and/or the persons appearing on stage, and do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of Creation Entertainment, LLC or any of their affiliated parties.

Master Of Ceremonies for STRANGER CON BRETT GELMAN
Stranger Con will have a special celebrity host Brett Gelman "Murray Bauman" for the entire weekend, and we can't wait to see him entertain you for the entire convention!
Over the last several years we have found that having an on stage celebrity “MC” really has made a big difference in upping the fun for our audience as the MC knows the geusts and can introduce them in a way others can not. We also get a glimpse into the off the air relationships between the stars this way. We hope you enjoy this concept as much as we do.
THE COSTUME CONTEST
Show your creative talents, and impeccable taste in characters, by entering our famous Costume Contest! Held on SATURDAY, come dressed as any Stranger Things character or anything with an 80's theme, and compete for the audience's applause to win great prizes! Who wouldn't want a $250 Gift Certificate good for Creation merchandise and the adoration of the audience?
It’s hard to believe, but our very first Costume Contest was held at our very first fan convention, way back in 1971, so it is great that the tradtion has grown so tremendously since then and we really appreciate the hard work contestants put into their costumes and make-up. You guys really add to the atmosphere of the gathering for all in attendance. There’s no huge forms or anything to fill out, just show up in costume and we’ll take it from there!
Note: Gift certificate are good for one year towards Creation Merchandise Only, excludes convention, autograph and photo-op tickets.
Our vendor area is filled with Stranger Things products, and great non-Stranger Things merchandise that we know you'll like!
As with all new convention tours our vendors area tends to be small because there is not that much merchandise available yet for STRANGER THINGS but we hope to have what is available and lots of new surprising items yet to be seen. For those that wish to be vendors at the convention full details are at www.creationent.com/dealers.htm and ARE $300 that covers both days and two vendors room wristbands. These are to be used for early access to the vendors area for set up and late for close down and are not meant to be purchased to attend the convention.

We're bringing you TWO exclusive Gold panels for Stranger Con!
• The first panel is Saturday and features Joe Keery & Shannon Purser together, at last, to talk about their experiences and answer your questions.

We’re happy that you’ll be able to attend, on a completely free basis, our Saturday Night Karaoke Party hosted by Brett Gelman. This is a general admission event so we remove some seats from the front so you do not keep your same seat as during the day. There are seats in the back of the theatre if you prefer to just chill and relax.

The show schedule is finalized the week of the convention due to flight itineraries and filming schedules of our celebrities. Convention activities usually start around 10:00 a.m., but will often earlier to accommodate one of the stars. Stage programming ends around 6:00 p.m. or 7:00 p.m. and autograph sessions begin after stage programming is complete for the day. This can run until 10:00 p.m. so PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY! Signings start usually after the program is over on Sundays, so we recommend that you plan to stay late or stay overnight if you are getting autographs on Sunday. The final schedule is always posted on this site on the WEDNESDAY PRIOR TO THE CONVENTION, unless there are unforeseen issues which cause a delay.
Our best advice is to plan for these time variabilities and check the schedule as soon as it is available.
All guests and scheduling are tentative and subject to change.
