Norwescon 45: Between Two Worlds

April 6–9, 2023 | SeaTac, WA

About Norwescon

Norwescon is the Pacific Northwest’s premier science fiction and fantasy convention, and one of the largest entirely volunteer-operated regional 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 comics, costuming, art, gaming, science, technology, and much, much more.


Hundreds of hours of panel programming presented by more than 200 panelists, covering such diverse subjects as science fiction, fantasy, science, costuming, art, writing, genre television, and movies, as well as myriad other topics of interest to fans.

Special Events

The Masquerade, the Philip K. Dick Awards, dances, concerts, performances, and other events not part of our general panel programming.


Meet and interact with local artists, shop from vendors in the Dealers’ Room, discover art in the Art Show, and learn about local clubs, organizations, and other conventions.

Be A Part

Norwescon is an all-volunteer organization. Volunteer at the convention, or join our Convention Committee and help us throughout the year to put Norwescon together!
