About Balticon 2018
Join members of the Baltimore Science Fiction Society as we embark on the fifty-second year 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. Balticon is held annually from Friday through Monday of Memorial Day Weekend. For 2018 the dates are May 25-28. Like the last two years, Balticon will take place in the Renaissance Harborplace Hotel in downtown Baltimore just across the street from the inner harbor and the docks.
