MisCon

MisCon is a 4-day celebration of fantasy, science fiction, and horror that takes over the Holiday Inn Missoula Downtown 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 32 Theme

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.

MisCon 32: Year of Lost Heroes

Our cities grow tall and glitzy, and cars take to the smoky skies. The post-apocalyptic era of mobsters and airships gives way to generations of scientists and solarpunks determined to advance the technology of their ancestors.

Pretty soon, we take to the stars again and rebuild New Hong Kong Orbital University, teaching about replicants, the Three Laws of Robotics, and all five elements.

Is this the Jetson's-style utopian dream we've always yearned for, or is it a dystopian nightmare we'd all rather awaken from? Should we pack up and colonize space or return to a simpler time without robot servants? Is our bright future another wasteland waiting to happen? Does Kuato still live? Will the Nostromo make it home safe? What's a Cylon, anyway?

While you're working on costumes, panel ideas, and game scenarios, think about cyberpunks, space colonies, robot uprisings, flying taxis, and the future of humanity. To get in the mood, play some Shadowrun or Final Fantasy, and watch Blade Runner, the Fifth Element, District 9, iRobot, Alien, Total Recall, Battlestar Galactica and Firefly. Join us at MisCon 31 and help explore the convention's bright future. We promise not to hire any robot police like RoboCop or Chappie. Oh, and it might be wise to brush up on your Chinese before you hop aboard the Serenity and leave Earth behind.
