About TusCon

     TusCon is an annual science fiction convention sponsored by the Baja Arizona Science Fiction Association (BASFA), a Southern Arizona section 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization. The primary focus of TusCon is science fiction, fantasy and horror, but we also pay attention to art, animation, science, media and gaming.

     Every year, dozens of professional writers, artists, editors, performers, and filmmakers attend the convention. We invite you to attend the convention, especially if you are a fan of reading, writing, gaming, and generally having fun. Besides, we have a Cookie Fairy in our ConSuite.

     What else does TusCon 44 offer? How about an Art Show & Artist Alley, Panel Discussions, Vendors Room, Gaming, Anime Room, Round-the-Clock Video Room, Q&A with Film Makers, Science Presentations, Masquerade / Cosplay, Live Performances, Learn from The Pros, and So Much More!!

     TusCon attracts between 300 to 500 attendees each year. Our attendees are an eclectic and diverse bunch, ranging from pre-teens to senior citizens. Income and education levels for TusCon attendees vary widely. The common denominator is a love for the written word, especially fantasy and science fiction.

Welcome to TusCon 44

     Hello, fellow fans. Welcome to TusCon, Arizona! More specifically, welcome to TusCon 44, our 44th annual Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Horror convention in Tuscon... ah, we mean rather Tucson, Arizona. Attendees of TusCon are among the most dedicated fans of science fiction, fantasy, and horror and many attendees are professional writers, film producers, artists, and reporters who keep others informed about the goings on in the industry.

     Our Guests of Honor will be announced soon. Please watch this space for updates and announcements.

     TusCon 44 will be held November 10th-November 12th 2017 at our new location the Radisson Hotel Tucson Airport in Tucson, Arizona. This is a new hotel for us, but rest assured they have all the amenities you have come to expect at TusCon. The hotel offers FREE Wi-Fi, FREE parking, Guest Laundry, Cocktail Hour, Pet-Friendly (subject to availability upon request), and the Hotel is accessible to individuals with disabilities!

     By special arrangement, complimentary breakfast will be available for all members of TusCon who are registered guests at the hotel.

     Please make sure to register early; we like to keep this convention small and intimate so that everyone has a chance to interact with our amazing guest authors, artists, and panelists. Attendance is limited to 500 registered attendees annually.

     At TusCon, we do things a little differently. We have a relaxed, friendly atmosphere surrounding three days of fascinating events and up close and personal discussions with some of today’s finest Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror creators.
