What is Frolicon you ask? We are an adult, over 21 only, sci-fi/kink/fantasy/gaming/party convention held in Atlanta, GA every Easter weekend. We offer classes in new-age idealism, kink/lifestyle oriented classes, bands, burlesque shows, performances, live action games, DJ’s, a digital scavenger hunt, a gaming room and parties. Lots of parties. If you don’t have your tickets yet, we are giving you a few more days to register on line. Just visit www.Frolicon.com and register for the low price of $50.00. After March 27, on line registration will close and you can only get your ticket to the con of the year at the door. And the price goes up to $65.00 for the weekend. What do you get for that low price? More than you can ever imagine. Look at some of the exciting things going on beneath the cut.
Over 50 Kink classes are being offered this year. Here are a few of the classes you can see. For a more detailed listing and description of classes, please check the website.
