About Worldcon

Worldcon is the annual convention of the World Science Fiction Society (WSFS). It was first held in 1939 and, after a hiatus during WWII, has been held continuously since 1946. The sites of future Worldcons are decided by WSFS members via a bidding process.

The currently selected Worldcons are shown below. Each Worldcon is an independent organization.  Worldcons sell “memberships,” not “tickets.” To attend a Worldcon, you must purchase an attending membership from that Worldcon. To join a Worldcon, contact the individual Worldcon directly.
