MarsCon 2021 is switching to online

Please join us for a weekend of virtual panel discussions, demos, gaming, cosplay, art, science, specialty vendors, watch parties, music and camaraderie! You can join from the safety of your Internet Access Device for a virtual rendition of MarsCon!

The virtual 2021 convention will be free... with paid memberships rolling over to MarsCon 2022 (to be held at the Airport Hilton, Bloomington, MN, on March 11-13, 2022).

MarsCon has ongoing expenses, so if you can afford it, please consider clicking over to the MarsCon online store and sending a donation.

Programming & Events at MarsCon
One of the cooler things about planning virtual programming is that geographical limits no longer exist. Presenters, performers and attendees can join from nearly anywhere, and we’re hoping to see folks from far and wide.

Programming will feature Artist Guest of Honor Jon Sloan and Music Guest Of Honor Robbie Ellis (learn more about Robbie or buy his music at &
Also, making her MarsCon debut, comedy musical artist Amy Englehardt.
As well as these usual suspects in the MarsCon Comedy Music Track:
Beth Kinderman
Devo Spice
Il Neige
Insane Ian
The Great Luke Ski
TV’s Kyle & Lindzilla
Much more about our Comedy Music Track can be found at

We are hoping to invite as many former guests and past MarCon programming contributors as we can reach to join in the fun. Please help by sharing your ideas for programming with us—talks you’d like to hear or give, presenters/performers you would recommend, subjects or activities of interest to you and other fans… Add your ideas to the list on the Programming Suggestions page.

We also plan to have a virtual Art Show and a virtual Dealers Room. More information will be coming soon.

The great dumpster fire that was 2020 is not yet quite extinguished. If you are one of the fortunate financially-secure ones MarsCon urges you to support several worthy causes. Read about them at the Charity Auction page. Thanks to all for supporting our greater community.

The Forces of Darkness shall safely assemble in front of screens on March 12th - 14th, 2021

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. Our comedy music track is virtually a con in itself, and attracts a nation-wide audience.
