Event Details

Windycon is Chicagoland’s oldest science fiction convention.

Our attendance is usually around 1,200 members. This makes Windycon a more intimate event than the mega conventions. A large aspect of our convention is the time you can spend having great conversations with friends, panelists, and even the Guests.

Attendees are generally interested in a broad spectrum of science fiction and fantasy topics. This can include, but is not limited to: steampunk, dragons, fairies, robots, anime, zombies, pirates, ninjas, astrophysics, gaming, horror, space operas, urban fantasy, vampires, time travel, and cats.

Demographically, Windycon attendees skew older, many with children, and even grandchildren. There is a heavy representation of individuals in Education, Science, and Computer Tech industries.

At our core, we are a literary based convention. We have an annual Short Story contest and a Writer’s Workshop, where seasoned authors and editors help aspiring writers with their works-in-progress.
