Join us for the 12th annual MarsCon Masquerade Ball, happening soon in your very own galaxy!

Time to dance, socialize, dress in costume or make a costume on site, and participate in a stellar music trivia contest. Everyone attending will have a chance to cast a vote for your favorite costume, and the top vote getters will receive fan-tastic prizes!

If you’ve never attended the MarsCon science fiction/fantasy/gaming convention before, this will be a fun-filled, wafer thin slice of the party to come in March, a chance to connect with fellow fans and sample the delights of the post-Halloween costuming season. If you have attended, you can party with friends, make new friends, gear up for a night of cosplay, and whet your appetite for the big event.

At this year̵s Ball, we’ll also be celebrating a landmark birthday (hint...65...yes, we had permission to post that) and retirement for two very special MarsCon volunteers! Stop in and congratulate them both.

Note: The Masquerade Ball is happening at Crowne Plaza Aire (not the hotel where MarsCon 2019 will be happening, but just down the block from there, and just off the LRT.) This Hotel has an on site coffee shop which will be open through the late afternoon, in case you show up early and would like to pitch in with set-up. The restaurant/bar will be open until 11:00 pm.

Masquerade Ball Admission: $10.00 at the door, $8.00 with one or more food shelf donation items.
($6 for kids 14-16 with adult)

We hope to see you there!
