Midwest Conventions

This is a listing of all the conventions in the Midwest region, as Midfan defines it. This definition can be found on the About Midfan page.

An * denotes a traveling con.  A + is a convention outside the Midfan region, many of these are convention that are immediately outside of the region, and thus of interest to Midwestern congoers. Others include the Worldcons and other major traveling conventions that occasionally visit the region. Worldcon bids are only listed if the occur in the region or immediately outside. All sitting Worldcons are listed, regardless of location. Finally, a name in bold face is a convention being run by Midfan, and we'd like you to join us.

Anyone wanting to add their convention to the list can mail conlist@midfan.org, with the name, city, location, and a URL for more information. We need at least an email address to post so that interested people can find out more about your convention. In general, we will only post convention in the region, however, traveling conventions that visit the area, and Worldcons, are also welcome.
