Missoula's Science Fiction & Fantasy Convention

MisCon 33: May 24 - 27, 2019 Missoula, Montana

MisCon Registration

Visit the MisCon Store to register

(Only full weekend registrations can be purchased online in advance.)

We've already printed badges for attendees who pre-registered before May 7. These pre-registered attendees can just proceed to the Pre-Reg Area at the hotel front entry, pick up their badges, and come have fun.

This year we've opened up a new way to make on-site registration faster: Early Sign In. Just Sign In and register. You can choose to pay right away, or you can pay when you arrive at MisCon. Either way, when you show up at the hotel front doors, skip the Pre-Reg table and head to the Registration table on the right. We'll whip up your badge and get you inside. Please remember to skip the Pre-Reg table!

MisCon Convention Membership Rules


MisCon is dedicated to providing a harassment-free environment for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, capability, physical appearance, body type, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of MisCon participants in any form.

  • Harassment includes:
    • Offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, or sexual images in public spaces.
    • Deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording.
    • The sustained disruption of MisCon or other events, uninvited and unwelcome verbal or physical contact or attention.
    • Creating an unpleasant or hostile situation especially by annoying or bothering someone in a persistent or repeated way.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. If they don't, they will be ejected from MisCon.

Cosplay is not Consent: people in costumes are not asking for unwanted attention. They are people, not the character they portray. Please treat with them with the same respect you'd give any other attendee.

If you are being harassed or have other concerns, please contact a member of the convention staff or hotel staff and ask to be put in touch with Justin Barba (MisCon Chair), Amy Farrington (MisCon Vice Chair), or Henry Edwards (MisCon Security Director).

    • Obtain permission from the MisCon Info Table prior to posting signs at the convention and register room parties with Security.

    • If your costume includes a real OR prop weapon, report to MisCon Staff at various locations, including the Registration Table, Info Table, or any Security member around the convention.
    • MisCon Security will peace bond your weapon/prop weapon by banding it with a zip tie. This zip tie will not prevent you from violating our weapon policy, but it indicates to MisCon Staff that Security has gone over the weapon policy with you.
