Westercon 74, the 2021 West Coast Science Fantasy Conference, will be held starting at 11:00 AM on Friday, July 1, 2022 and ending in the late afternoon/early evening of Monday, July 4, 2022. There may be additional activities happening on the evening before the convention starts and after the official closing on July 4.
(The original dates of Westercon 74 were in July 2021, but the convention was postponed one year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.)
The event will be held at the Tonopah Convention Center, Mizpah Hotel/Mizpah Club, Belvada Hotel, and Old Tonopah Library.
Westercon is a science fiction and fantasy convention with an emphasis on SF/F literature and art, but including costuming, audio/visual media, and related subjects. Anyone can attend Westercon by purchasing an attending membership. Westercon does not sell “tickets” but instead classifies everyone as a “member.” The event depends completely on the effort of volunteers. Nobody is paid to work on the convention, and the event is organized on an “everyone pays, everyone plays” basis.
As we get closer to the event in July 2022, information about the detailed schedule of events being held during Westercon will be posted here.
