You can preview our incomplete and preliminary schedule—many panels have room for additional presenters; if you see an event you would like to be in drop us a note and we’ll take care of it.

Check the web site often for updates on programming. If you have someone you think would enhance MarsCon programming, please send us your suggestion and contact info if available. We are especially interested in magic acts!

In addition to events lead by our wonderful Guests of Honor, MarsCon depends on you, the attendees, for much of our programming. It’s not too late to post your ideas for events there so they have a chance at happening.

As always, MarsCon is immensely grateful for the incredible programming we receive each year from artists, authors, guests, musicians, singers, actors, fan groups, clubs and individuals. Thank you for your support!
