WisCon 40

2016 is WisCon’s 40th convention! We’re celebrating by bringing back beloved former Guest of Honor Nalo Hopkinson (WisCon 26), in addition to honoring authors Sofia Samatar and Justine Larbalestier. This year we’re also unveiling a new Gaming Track in our panel programming. And underneath it all, WisCon remains WisCon — from our vast array of Programming, a weekend packed with Events, and Spaces to help everyone find a place.

We hope you’ll join us over U.S. Memorial Day Weekend — May 27-30, 2016!!
