About Minicon 51

What is Minicon and who is running it.

Minicon is Minneapolis's longest running science fiction convention! We hope you'll join us this year. You'll be in the company of about 700 other fans of not only science fiction, but fantasy, horror, anime, gaming, music, and many other pursuits.

Minicon features panel discussions, readings, signings, costuming, films, gaming, an art show, a dealers' room, kids' programming, a teen lounge and teen programming, a science room, music, a consuite and bar, room parties, and various other special events. For all that, most people say they don't come for what we have scheduled, but because they want to hang out with others like them in a place that feels like home.

Minicon 51 will be March 25-27, back to our normal 3 days.
