Montana's Premier Science Fiction Convention
What is MisCon?
MisCon is a four-day celebration of literacy and the arts within the science fiction, fantasy, and horror genres. Held each Memorial Day weekend (Friday through Monday), MisCon has something to fascinate, educate, and entertain you at all times.
Register now to meet authors, artists, actors, and other professionals in the world of speculative fiction and science. Sign up for our Writer's or Art workshops. Enjoy discussion panels on art, writing, films, gaming, and other topics of interest. Play roleplaying, board, and card games in the gaming rooms. Participate in the costume contest, bid on artwork at our auction, browse our merchants' room, or just come to meet others who share your fandom of books, art, gaming, and crafts.
MisCon 26 Theme
Toss Hansel in the oven, kiss a slimy frog, and put a pea beneath your mattress. MisCon 26: A Fairy Tale is on the way. In recent years, MisCon has been hijacked by the Illuminati, become a crossroads of time and space, and gone Silver.
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.
