Montana's Premier Science Fiction Convention
What is MisCon?
MisCon is a 4-day celebration of fantasy, science fiction, and horror that takes over our hotel every Memorial Day Weekend.
Through discussion panels, hangouts, games, readings, craft demos, and workshops, we bring fans together with authors, artists, game designers, actors, costumers, and other professionals in the world of speculative fiction.
View and buy art from our Art Show, watch our film festival submissions, participate in our Costume Pageant, play RPGs, board games, and Magic the Gathering, and check out Merchants' Row. Whatever your interests, MisCon has something to fascinate, educate and entertain you.
MisCon 29's wasteland is a dim memory, now. Today's bustling convention is filled with factions, each working to rebuild society as they see fit.
MisCon has risen from the ashes!
Will you join the intrepid League of Explorers with their clockwork suits and foolhardy flying machines? If exploring the ruins of Old New York isn't your thing, maybe you can help the neutron-powered Superhero Society clean up MisCon's seedy underbelly and stop the Syndicate from smuggling contraband into the convention.
Our theme changes every year. The yearly theme influences panel topics, invited guests, decoration, and sometimes convention-wide events. We encourage guests, members, and attendees to take each year's theme to heart, and let it influence your thoughts of, and preparation for, MisCon each year.
