Once again MarsCon will be held at:
Hilton Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport Mall of America
3800 American Blvd E
Map & directions
The Hilton is mostly accessible by mass transit... it’s about 4/10ths of a mile from the American Blvd LRT stop. There are also shuttles to the LRT stop, the airport, and the Mall of America. If you have trouble walking (perhaps due to luggage or snow) the best transit option is probably bus or train to MoA, then take the hotel shuttle.
Parking continues to be spotty at best. We will work with the hotel to line up additional space, but we strongly suggest ridesharing/cab/Uber/Lyft/LRT. Hint: if you book a sleeping room you only have to park your chariot once.
Having your own room gives you site to store your stuff, a place to park your paraphernalia, a closet to contain your costumes, and somewhere to sleep. Sleeping sometime over the weekend is a good idea, and less travel time over the weekend gives you more time to be at the con.
You may now book your sleeping room for MarsCon 2021 - just follow this link. (Note: the online booking defaults to a Thursday through Monday booking, you'll probably want to edit that.)
Room rates will be $99.00 + tax per night (run of the house) or $123.00 + tax per night (junior suites). The cutoff date for this rate is Thursday, Feb 18, 2021.
At the risk of repeating ourselves, we recommend carpooling or mass transit to reach MarsCon. But if you do drive and find the Hilton parking lot is full, there will be overflow parking (somewhere).
MarsCon is a fan-run science fiction convention for all ages held every March 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.
