The North American Science Fiction Convention (NASFiC) is held in years when the World Science Fiction Convention is held outside of North America. Because the 2023 Worldcon will be held in Chengdu, there will also be a NASFiC that year. The site for the 2023 NASFiC was selected by a vote of the members of the 2022 Worldcon, Chicon 8.
Pemmi-Con will be held over 20-23 July 2023, in the Delta Hotels Winnipeg and the RBC Convention Centre, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It is in the heart of Winnipeg, well-served by public transit, and within easy walking distance of restaurants, brewpubs, shopping, museums, historic sites, gardens and parks with great public art. For further exploration, check out the Winnipeg pages.
Pemmi-Con will have an extensive programme, with a wide variety of talks, readings, workshops, and happenings.
Pemmi-Con will have exhibits related to science fiction and fantasy creators and fannish culture, especially showcasing Canadian and local Winnipeg communities.
Pemmi-Con will have an art show featuring art works from all over North America and maybe further.
Pemmi-Con will have a dealer’s hall with rare and hard to find books, unique crafts and creations. It will have fan tables where you can find out about other fan groups and conventions.
The North American Science Fiction Convention is a gathering of science fiction and fantasy fans and creatives from all over the continent. There are meetups for all sorts of fannish interests. It is a great way to meet people and get to know them better, especially if you volunteer.
