Eagle-Con will bring together science fiction, fantasy, comic books, and superheroes, as well as insider views of these highly creative genres at Cal State LA. This year’s theme is “Amazing Abilities and the Body Fantastic.”

The three-day convention will explore issues of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, identity, ability, and representation in science fiction and fantasy across media. The Art Directors Guild is the founding sponsor of Eagle-Con at Cal State LA.

Thursday, March 7 to Saturday, March 9. Cal State LA is located at the Eastern Avenue exit, San Bernardino (I-10) freeway, at the interchange of the 10 and 710 freeways. Public permit parking available in upper level of Structure C.
