MarsCon - Forces of Darkness

MarsCon 2021 Registration

All 2021 events are Free. :-)

If you would like to participate as a presenter on any of the events listed in our preliminary program, please contact programming at

We will have links to join scheduled events as an attendee posted a little closer to the convention weekend. Keep an eye on the preliminary program as the schedule develops.

We have ongoing expenses. Donations will be gratefully accepted, visit the MarsCon Store at Square.

MarsCon 2022 Registration

MarsCon 2022 Registration Rates
Through 10/31/2021 Through 1/31/2022 At the Door (2/1/2022 through con)
Teen/Adult $45.00 $55.00 $70.00
Child (6-12) $25.00 $30.00 $35.00
There is no registration charge for children under six years of age. We are happy to provide badges for this age group upon request, however they don’t need to wear badges.
Supporting $30.00 $35.00
† Supporting members pay a reduced rate through 1/31/2022 to hold memberships and then complete the purchase by paying an additional $25.00 at any time up to and including at the door.
Sponsor ‡ $80.00 $80.00 $80.00
Sponsors don’t get any perk in particular — at least nothing that’s going to cost us money. They do get the smug satisfaction that comes with knowing that some extra yummy snack in the Consuite… or perhaps another mic for Mainstage… was made possible by their contribution. Our assumption is if you’re donating extra money to MarsCon you want us to spend it on making the con better.
Party Host (x2 per party) $35.00 each $45.00 each $70.00 each
Party Host Discount — For 2022 we offer a discount for the first two party hosts per party. Party hosts must include at the same time a Party Request form along with two registrations. NO EXCEPTIONS. The Party Host discount offer is valid until 1/31/2022 - after that At The Door rates apply.

If you already have purchased a 2021 membership...

Your registration will automatically roll over to MarsCon 2022 - in person. Pick up your badge(s) at Registration. Thank you for supporting MarsCon.

To buy with cash...

We accept cash at MarsCon parties at various cons throughout the year. Tell the people running the party room you want to register for MarsCon. They’ll get you all set up. Of course we also gladly accept cash at the door.

To buy with a check...

We also accept checks at MarsCon parties. Or, you can print out our 2022 registration form—(coming soon)—and send it along with a check. Our mailing address is:
P.O. Box 21213
Eagan, MN 55121

To buy with a credit card...

MarsCon uses Square to process our credit cards. Pick the membership type(s) you want, and make your purchase. Square accepts Visa, Mastercard, AmEx, Discover, and Bitcoin, and there is no need to sign up with Square to make the occasional purchase. Please, please use the “comments to vender” space in your order form to include your desired Badge Name along with Real and Badge Names for others you are ordering for. If you don’t include that information we will pester you by email. To get started click below.

Visit the MarsCon Store

To buy at the door...

Bring your credit card, checkbook, or fistful of cash to the registration desk at MarsCon 2021. You can save a couple minutes in line by filling in a copy of the registration form in advance. People arriving late at night will be able to register or pick up badges in the Bridge. The Bridge, however, will not be set up to accept credit cards, so if you want to go that route to register try to arrive during daytime or early evening hours.

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.
