The Pacific Northwest’s Premier Science-Fiction and Fantasy Convention
Norwescon is the Pacific Northwest’s premier science fiction and fantasy convention and one of the largest regional science fiction and fantasy conventions in the United States. While maintaining a primarily literary focus, Norwescon is large enough to provide a venue for many of the other aspects of science fiction and fantasy and the interests of its fans such as anime, costuming, art, gaming, and much, much more.
Norwescon is held every Easter weekend. Norwescon 41 will be March 29–April 1, 2018. Our theme this year is “Uncovering Mysteries”. We hope you can join us!
Norwescon has had the honor of hosting the Philip K. Dick Awards since 1984. The Philip K. Dick Award and Special Citation is presented annually for distinguished science fiction books published for the first time in the United States as a paperback original. The award is sponsored by the Philadelphia Science Fiction Society, and the ceremony is sponsored by the Northwest Science Fiction Society and held annually at Norwescon. For more information, please see our Philip K. Dick Awards page.
The Norwescon Masquerade is the highlight of Saturday night at Norwescon. It is open to all convention members of all costuming skill levels. Cosplay, original creations, humor, action, pathos, and more! For more information, including Masquerade entrance rules, please see our Masquerade page.
Each year, Norwescon offers four full days of almost non-stop gaming in our Scheduled and Open gaming areas, covering RPGs, card games, LARPs, board games, and much, much more! For more information on our plans for this year’s gaming options, please see our Gaming page.
Norwescon offers a number of chances to meet and interact with local artists in Art in Action; shopping for books, collectibles, memorabilia, clothing, and more from a wide range of vendors in the Dealers’ Room; the Art Show, featuring artwork from local and world-famous artists, with both originals and prints available for sale; and the many lobby tables from local organizations. For more information please see our Exhibitors pages.
