Norwescon 40: Over the Hills and Far Away

Norwescon 40 will be April 13–16, 2017. Our theme this year is “Over the Hills and Far Away”.

Our Guests of Honor are Ian McDonald (Author), Cory and Catska Ench (Artists), Ethan Siegel (Science), Nancy Kress (Toastmaster), and Angry Robot Books (Spotlight Publisher) represented by Marc Gascoigne and Mike Underwood.

No matter your age or interest, Norwescon strives to make sure there is always something appealing to do over the four days of the convention. Our programming department schedules hundreds of hours of panel programming covering a myriad of subjects. Whether you’re looking for writer’s workshops, costuming tips, artistic creativity, musical concerts, or filmmaking experience, you’ll find it here!

We also feature a number of special events over the course of the weekend. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night each feature a DJ’d dance in the grand ballrooms with pop and fan favorites old and new, or you can kick back with our midnight movies. Open and scheduled gaming runs throughout the weekend. Try to get the drop on your friends during our Lazer Tag games. Friday features an 18-and-over special event. And, of course, there’s the Masquerade, complete with Children’s Masquerade.

Arts, artists, and artistry of all kinds are also large part of Norwescon. You’ll find plenty to tease the eyes (and tempt your pocketbook) from our many exhibitors in the Art Show, at Art in Action, and in our Dealers’ Room.
