Welcome to the Summer of Sonic 2008!
Welcome! The Summer of Sonic is a celebration of Sonic the Hedgehog. In 2006, Svend Joscelyne of The Sonic Stadium created a website inviting the worldwide fan community to contribute content for the birthday of SEGA’s mascot character. In 2008, that was taken to a real life environment as we held the first ever convention specially for Sonic the Hedgehog! Over 300 people turned up to the Covent Garden Dragon Hall Trust on 9th August from all corners of the world, and everyone had an awesome time!
This website has now become an archive for memories of the London event - if you wish to send any of your photos of videos, please contact Svend. You can browse videos and photos below - if you want to learn more about the event that took place, feel free to use the links in the top or to the side.
