BAR WARS postponed due to bad weather

Due to inclement weather Markster Con has decided to POSTPONE tonight's BAR WARS PUB CRAWL until Friday, January 12th, 2018 (tentative). Typically we do not like to reschedule events but we do not want to put any of our attendees at risk of accident trying to get to the event from out-of-town or having to deal with out-of-the-norm heavy/stressful traffic.

All tickets will be honored at that time, as well as t-shirts will be available for pickup. Since the event has been postponed, we will re-open ticket sales also for people who could not attend tonight but can attend on the reschedule date via

For those seeking a refund who can't attend on January 12th, please send a email to

Usher in 2018 with Markster Con and DANTE'S LABYRINTH III

Calling all fairies, gnomes, trolls, maidens, devils, Goblin kings...and any other mystical creature...for a fantastical, demented trip through Dante's Labyrinth!

What better way to welcome in 2018 than with your fellow freaks and geeks on NEW YEAR'S EVE in Atlanta. With the help of Markster Con, Bryce Horror FX and Dragon Fire Events, we'll usher in the New Year at an event completely different than your "typical" New Year's Eve celebrations you'll find anywhere else.

Find your way through the Labyrinth into new possibilities. We'll help redefine how to celebrate a new year of possibilities with a non-traditional, dark masquerade. More info. soon to
