The People of Chattacon 

All guests of honor, panelists, performers, presenters, artists or any other individual who may present in some way at Chattacon are booked in good faith and we have their guarantee that they will appear when we announce they will be at the convention. However, unforeseen events (illness, family emergencies or production work) may cause a particular guest to cancel. 



Chattooine started out as a Star Wars Fanforce and has developed into an all Fandom group for everyone to hang out and experience good times with friends and like fanpeeps. See below for our fanforce statement.

Star Wars FanForce is a feature of, one of the oldest and most visited fan-run Star Wars news websites, and is dedicated to helping Star Wars fans to meet and interact with other fans in their local community. Each FanForce is led by one or more Chapter Representatives who are responsible for the organization of group events. The Chattooine Outer Rim Lookouts is the officially recognized FanForce chapter for Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Chattooine is a non-profit club comprised of individuals who enjoy the Star Wars films, other aspects of the Star Wars franchise, and other aspects of science fiction. It was created in order to give fans in the Chattanooga area a chance to socialize and engage in activities relating to the varied aspects of the Star Wars franchise. We strive to keep Star Wars and Science Fiction alive in the eyes of the Chattanooga community and surrounding areas, and endeavor to give back to the community through charitable events.

As the Chattooine family grew, so did its interests and influence. Chattooine has embraced all kinds of costuming and charity functions. From Harry Potter to Pirates, Muppets to Masquerade Balls, convention organizers, Halloween enthusiasts, and even anime, Chattooine is THE place to go to get your geeky fix.
