Hotel Room Availability

There are still about 75 rooms available for Friday and Saturday night at our original contracted rate of $126. This year, we are seeing a record number of people staying at the hotel on Wednesday and Thursday nights, and we are sold out of rooms on those nights.

We have been working with the hotel to find additional rooms to add to our block, and they have been able to offer a limited number of rooms for Wednesday and Thursday at a higher rate. See the Hotel page for more information.

If you plan to stay at the hotel, you should get your reservation soon.

Art Show Open for Business

Norwescon 38 art show is now accepting applications from artists, and we would love to hear from you. This year's art show promises to be as exciting and diverse as any in the last several years, and we would like you to be part of that experience.

Headlined by our artist guest of honor, Julie Dillon, and featuring many of the Northwest's most accomplished and recognized artists, the Norwescon art show is one of the most successful and recognized in the West Coast. The Norwescon art show's goal is not just to feature the most well-known and successful artists, but also to supply a venue that provides exposure for up-and-coming artists, helping them to hone their craft and build a successful career.

We would like you to be part of our community. Please visit the Norwescon Art Show page for more information on how you can sign up with the Norwescon 38 art Show.

Gaming Staff Positions Available

Greetings from your friendly neighborhood gamer geek squad! Norwescon is gearing up to be extra exciting this year, and gaming is no exception! We have been given the Maxi's space again and planning is in full swing to make this the best year for gaming yet!

We are currently recruiting game masters and staff. Open staff positions include track leads for several gaming tracks and room staff. Our tracks are family gaming, board games, card games and tournaments, role playing games, computer games, LARPs, and dealers/kickstarters. Track lead positions focus on recruiting game masters within a given game genre and work with the department lead and scheduler to get game masters set up to run games during the convention.

Room staff work the room during the convention doing head counts, passing out raffle tickets, directing people to their tables, and assisting people in finding games.
