The Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention is a three-day festival held inside the Hunt Valley Wyndham. Here, you can watch dozens of screenings of vintage movies, world premiere documentaries, Hollywood celebrities posing for photos and signing autographs for fans, slide show seminars from authors and historians, over 200 vendor tables with retro merchandise, antiques and collectibles and... well, it is a lot of fun.
Whether you have been to other conventions in the past or never attended a convention before, we recommend you give it a try. You'll discover what people keep returning year after year. Attendees come from California, Canada, Seattle, England, Belgium, Florida, Maine... and statistically the size of the attendance has grown every year. MANC didn’t attract such a faithful following by accident. Nearing our 10th anniversary, MANC has offered fans a chance to meet Hollywood actors, visit a drive-in movie theater, watch old fifties films like Creature from the Black Lagoon in 3-D, have their picture next to The Blob silicone, watch Abbott and Costello impersonators perform on stage, and have a great time.
Many of the seminars will be broadcast live from Radio Once More and you can tune into the station for free at http://radiooncemore.com/
