Event Description

About Windycon

In the Chicago area, Windycon has taken on a mythic reputation as one of the longest running sci-fi cons. And now in it’s 45th edition, the con brings you “Unlikely Heroes” for this year’s theme!
With this growing con, fans rally behind their favorite parts of geekdom. And the event often draws in over a thousand people. On the one hand, this means that the con is respectable in size, but on the other hand, it’s not too big to drown out the smaller voices in the scene.
And for sci-fi and fantasy, all your bases are covered. From horror to gaming and steampunk to astrophysics, the con is sure to have something to interest you. The con also remains focused on literature as well, with a writer’s workshop and many authors for you to meet.
Once you see the art show and the dealer’s room, you’ll be ready to support your local con scene in all its glory. In fact, you’ll have a chance to meet many other fans who are passionate about what you love too!
