News From MarsCon:
Hey kids, don’t put your Halloween costumes away just yet:
MarsCon 2020 Masquerade Party
Saturday, November 16, 2019 – 7pm-Midnight
Oakwood Family Funeral Home and Crematory
2585 Stillwater Rd
Maplewood, MN 55119
(Just East of the Maplewood water tower)
Cost: $10.00/person or $8.00/person with a food shelf donation.
Note: Attendees may register for MarsCon 2020 at the pre 10/31/2019 rates + get an additional $5 off.
This venue does NOT have an attached bar or restaurant but you can BYOB. IF you wish to bring a dish to share that would be cool too.
The same venue will be hosting SF Minnesota & Eric Heideman’s It Only Hurts When I Laugh: Classic Horror Comedies dryParty (free, 3pm-midnight). Come for one or both. We hope to see you there!
The Hilton now has their online booking set up for MarsCon 2020: www.hilton.com/en/hi/groups/personalized/M/MSPAHHF-MAR-20200227/index.jhtml. The room rate is the same as last year - $115/night plus taxes. Having your own room gives you a base of operations and a place to store your paraphernalia.
Dealer room applications are now live. Application process runs through December 1, 2019.
Applications were emailed to past and existing dealers on Monday Nov. 4. Current dealers: please check your emails! I am not mailing paper applications this year. If you are a current or past dealer, or someone who would like to apply, please let me know by Nov. 25, 2019. Applications close on December 1, 2019. Please email me your inquiry and I will forward you the application. We are currently not able to accept any new jewelry dealers. Thanks!
Artist Guest of Honor: Darla Eklund

Featured Musical Guest: Luke Ski (who will announce Dementia Track attendees soon!)
Astronomer: Parke Kunkle
This year we are posting a very early version of our program schedule way in advance. Take a look - keep in mind many, many items will be added.
You may pre-order registrations at the MarsCon 2020 Online Store. You may also make a donation to MarsCon at the online store. (It’s tax deductable, just in case that sort of thing is important to you.)
