Marcon (Multiple Alternative Realities Convention) for years was known as The Midwest's Premiere Science Fiction & Fantasy Convention but is more accurately described as The Midwest's Premiere Pan-Genre Geek Culture Convention because it has everything and is the most fun you can have in a year, packed into a single weekend.
Marcon was started in 1966 and was held in a Holiday Inn in Toledo. It was simply a planning session for the 1966 Cleveland Worldcon (TriCon). It has continued as a fan run convention every year since. It has moved from March (MARch+Con) through April and landed in May on Memorial Day Weekend. For a short 2 years (2012 & 2013) Marcon was on Easter weekend but has now found its home on Mothers day weekend.
Upcoming Marcon dates:
2016 May 6-8
2017 May 12-14
2018 May 11-13
Over the years Marcon has had the honor of bringing its attendees over 300 guests from authors, editors, actors, producers, F/X experts, artists, costumers, anime, comics, and so many more.
Marcon is presented by SOLAE, an Ohio 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. The conventions are completely run by volunteers and supported by sponsorships, donations and our attendees.
