There will be a rememberance event in honor of all former MarsCon Convention Committee members who have passed on. Join us at 7:00 pm February 27 - the evening before the start of MarsCon 2020 - in the Cardinal Perch Room, 2nd floor of the Airport Hilton. This time has been chosen so that those that may wish to attend, and are not planning on attending Marscon, may do so without convention traffic. This is a non-badged event; all are welcome.
In memory of: Katie J. Nelson (1975-2020), Blair Keith (1955-2018), Lucia Johnson (1954-2015), Juana Mann (1948-2014), Larry Andrle (1970-2014), Dov Magy (1971-2013), George Madline (1959-2013), Jodi Klug (1957-2012), Christopher L. RiversBey (1970-2010).

Midevil MarsCon

MarsCon is a fan-run science fiction convention for all ages held every March (sometimes in late February) in the Twin Cities area. At MarsCon you’ll find panel discussions, parties, guest of honor presentations, music of many kinds, our art show, film/anime room, science room, dealers room, charity auction, and masquerade. The Dementia track is virtually a con in itself, and attracts a nation-wide audience.
