Eternal Members and VIPs Exclusive Party
Thursday, August 31, 2017. 8:00 PM – midnight.
Location is on the Eternal Members postcard.

  • This is the only official event exclusively for Eternal Members run by Dragon Con. Only Eternals will be admitted. Security checks for Dragon Con Eternal Membership badges and ID at the door. This party is 21 and up due to Georgia’s alcohol laws. There is a free bar and free food.
  • Sometimes celebrity VIPs join the party but this is not guaranteed.
  • The secret location will be on your Eternal postcard. PLEASE do not share the party’s location online, even in the Eternals fan group. Due to the celebrity guests there are security issues with the location. Help us keep our party safe and secure for future years. Thank you.
  • Eternal postcards with the secret party location have all been mailed our for 2017. If you have not gotten yours already, email office@dragoncon.org to update your mailing information, and it will get sent back out again. You can also use the http://dragoncon.org/?q=contact-us form. Always be sure to include your name and current mailing address.
  • Unlike most of the events for our fan group, this event is private. This is because this is an exclusive event for Eternals only and is run by Dragon Con, not the Eternal Members fan group. You cannot invite your non-Eternal friends. Non-Eternals are required by Dragon Con security to wait outside the room.

DC Eternals Thursday Night Afterparty at Hyatt Bar
Thursday, August 31, 2017. Starts at midnight or whenever the official party above ends
Location: The Hyatt Bar aka Twenty Two Stories Bar

  • After Dragon Con’s exclusive party for just Eternals and VIPs ends, the Eternals are heading to the the Hyatt bar to continue the fun with our non-Eternal friends and talk about what 10:00 AM panel we are praying to NOT accidentally sleep through this year ;)
  • But if the Eternals wander down to the afterparty a bit late, just know that we are on Dragon Con Party Time and we’ll be there eventually. Our exclusive party has free food and drink *burp* so we might need to make a pit stop before heading on down if you know what I mean.
  • While the afterparty is being targeted at Eternal Members, it isn’t exclusive. Eternals are welcome to their bring your non-Eternal friends. Everyone is welcome, you don’t have to know any Eternals to join us. This is Thursday night so you don’t even need a badge to get into the hotel.
  • Privacy: The privacy setting of this Facebook event is set to “public” so that members of https://www.facebook.com/groups/DragonConEternalMembers can invite friends that are not a part of that Facebook group.
