Welcome to Grand Prix Charlotte!
posted 2015-05-04 by Pete Hoefling
Just a few short years ago, the city of Charlotte, North Carolina entered the record books by hosting the largest Magic: The Gathering Grand Prix of all time. And on June 12th-14th, thousands of Magic: The Gathering fans will once again descend on the Queen City when StarCityGames.com proudly presents Grand Prix Charlotte! This Modern-format Grand Prix will be held at the Charlotte Convention Center… and it’s going to be huge!
No Grand Prix is complete without artists, and we're excited to have the incredibly talented Clint Cearley, rk post, Mark Poole, Jason A. Engle, Eric Deschamps and Noah Bradley joining us!
But it doesn’t stop there.
StarCityGames.com-run Grand Prix always feature a special Guest of Honor, and Grand Prix Charlotte is no exception. Please join us in welcoming our Grand Prix Charlotte Guest of Honor… all the way from Germany… Volkan Baga!
Normally, this is the part where I’d move on to announcing some of the many other reasons why Grand Prix Charlotte is going to be so big, but I didn’t say it was going to be big; I said it was going to be HUGE! And since this is our second Grand Prix in Charlotte and the event will be celebrating the release of the second Modern Masters set, we thought it’d only be appropriate to commemorate the occasion by inviting a SECOND Guest of Honor!
And we were beyond thrilled when Terese Nielsen accepted our invitation!

Come meet them all… live and in person… at Grand Prix Charlotte June 12-14!
