What is Balticon?
Join members of the Baltimore Science Fiction Society as we embark on the second fifty years of Balticon, the premier non-profit fan-run Science Fiction Convention in the Mid-Atlantic region.
We’ll have multiple tracks of Programming over the four day weekend, featuring authors, artists, scientists, musicians, podcasters, publishers, editors, costumers and other creative SF luminaries. Visit our Art Show and Dealers Room, attend one of our concerts or a dance, or take a break in the Gaming room or Video or Anime Room if you can tear yourself away from our entertaining and educational panels. Attend a Writer’s or Poetry Workshop, watch the Masquerade, or learn a new craft.
So come and join with us to celebrate all of our guests, along with the 2018 Compton Crook winner. There is sure to be something that will interest you!
