Norwescon 40 years!

Sunday, April 16, 2017


Step up to the kiosk! Today only, you can pre-register (at-Con only) for Norwescon 41 at the low, low price of only $45 for a full four-day membership. Tonight at midnight the price will go up to $55, so act now! Next year's theme will be Uncovering Mysteries!

Want Change?

Everyone you see working at Norwescon is a volunteer. Several departments had little to no staff this year, so if things didn’t run as smoothly as you would like, you can always volunteer and be the change that you want to see! As perks, you’ll get a cool STAFF shirt and discounted membership! Bring a friend!

Seeds of the Movies of Tomorrow (insert flaccid joke here)

The triumphant return of our Sunday Movie Previews will start at High Noon and run until 2:00 p.m. in Evergreen 1&2. If you’ve never seen our Sunday shows they are more free-form and feature the must-be-experienced-to-be-believed, “why? Why? WHY?” If you haven’t seen the latest from Hollywood, you won’t want to miss it.


The Con’s almost over, and you’ve found tons of convention stuff to complain about, haven’t you? Speak up! No, really, we want to know. We've put a Comment Card in your registration packet for just that reason. Good stuff, bad stuff, neat ideas; send us all of it.We won’t even make you find the one in your registration packet and turn it over to see all our other methods of contact; after Saturday night, we know how hard that could be. So we are tickled to present them here:

  • Return filled out cards to the boxes at the Information table or the Con Office
  • Our Onions & Roses Panel is today 5:00 pm in Evergreen 3&4
  • We take emails at
  • We take phone calls at 425-243-4692
  • We scour social media too! Tag your words with #NWC39, #NWCrose, or #NWConion
