MidSouthCon has grown over the years to become the Mid-South’s premier multi-genre convention. It covers a diverse section of fannish culture that includes Science Fiction, Fantasy, Science, Comics, Horror, Education, Costuming, Anime, and Gaming. We have over 100 authors, editors, publishers, scientists, artists and other guests, with an 2013 attendance of over 1700 people.
We average over 140 hours of programming in multiple tracks during the Con (and that’s not counting the Video Room, Anime Room or gaming tracks). Masquerade, Writers’ Conference, Readings, Autographs, Dealers’ Room, SCA demonstrations and events, Board Games, Role-playing and LARP games, CCG tournaments, and lots of other fun stuff.
This event is not just a gathering of old and new-found friends hanging out for a fun filled weekend. While we like to enjoy ourselves, we also want to do our little bit to make the world a better place to live in. We are organized primarily as a non-profit educational group but we also support more traditional charities. For more information check out our Good Causes page.
