About

What is Wayback Weekend? Our home-grown convention is a weekend getaway to take your mind away from the worries of the daily grind and celebrate the nostalgia of days gone by. Through a celebration of culture, music, fashion, toys, television, and movies, we aim to connect our shared experiences from the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s (and beyond) with other fans.

We believe a convention should be more than just a bunch of vendors (although we’ll have that too!). At Wayback Weekend, enjoy panels, live game shows, trivia contests, classic video game consoles, a retro-themed escape room, genre screenings, hands-on vintage relic free play, special guests, and more! Look forward to looking back, and sharing your favorite decades with the ones you love!

Who We Are

This may be the first-ever Wayback Weekend, but it isn’t our first rodeo. As the founders and crew chiefs of the Southern-Fried Gaming Expo, another homegrown con with over 5,000 attendees and six successful years of growth, we know a thing or two about running a convention and making memorable moments. First and foremost, however, we’re fans who simply want to share our love of nostalgia.
