Grand Prix Atlanta

May 23 - 25th - A weekend of amazing fun and Magic!

There's something for everyone during this amazing weekend of Magic the Gathering. Casual and Competitive players will find many events - and of course, the weekend features Grand Prix Atlanta! Join us for a weekend of fun with all types of events, artists, international Magic Vendors and more!

Truly a Magic-al Weekend, the fun begins on Friday with amazing events and great opportunities for exclusive promotional items. In addition, there will be non-tournament events starting on Friday with our new Magic Stage featuring seminars, Magic Artist and Pro Player meet and greets, cosplay, Magic Deck Doctor and more. Make sure to join us Friday night for the first MegaTrial - and win foils and Grand Prix byes while having fun with your friends! Want a playmat as a souvenir from this fantastic weekend? (obviously….) - check the event schedule as only certain events offer the exclusive playmat from Grand Prix Atlanta!

Of course, there is the Grand Prix - and GP Atlanta will feature one of the only complete Theros Block Grand Prix in the world! Alongside the entertainment and competition of the main event are plenty of casual, fun events like Commander, Grand Melee, Sealed Draft, booster drafts, win-a-boxes and more! To keep the entertainment level high, there will be artist appearances by Steve Argyle, Peter Morbacher, RK Post, and Jason Felix!

The weekend concludes with one of the hottest events in Magicdom - the Super Sunday Series. Grab a spot at the most exclusive, high-stakes Magic event around - and a all expenses paid trip to Seattle and Wizards of the Coast to play for a prize pool of $20,000 (under 50 players will be invited!)
