Madicon is an annual convention started in 1992 and created by the Science Fiction Fantasy Guild (SFFG).
SFFG is a JMU student organization, that continues to organize and run the convention.
Madicon is a Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Gaming convention that has something for everyone.
We usually run a myriad of competitions, from the gaming ones to the Costume Contest. There are table-top games to participate in,
and enough panels and workshops for anyone’s interests. We also run an Art Auction and have plenty of interesting vendors attend.
We run a LARP and Saturday evening we have a rave which has always been a big hit with attendees.
The convention also runs a Geek Auction and Charity Art Auction to donate to the Wildlife Center of Virginia.
The Center has traditionally come to the convention and given a fantastic Birds of Prey demonstration.
In the past we have hosted some wonderful guests, such as
C.J. Cherryh, R.K. Post, Patricia C. Wrede, Jim Butcher, Margaret Weis, David Gerrold, and many others.
We have run LARPs with PST Productions and White Wolf.
Garrison Tyrannus of the 501st Stormtrooper Legion has attended Madicon for several years in a row.
