The Norwescon Little Free Library now has donation ribbons for your badge. If you've ever donated a book, please stop by the table to get yours. Grab a book or two while you're at it!

Norwescon Charities - Donations Request

Thinking about what to pack for Norwescon? Don't forget we are accepting donations of items that are fannish in nature, such as art, jewelry, books, and games, to sell in our art show with all proceeds going to a nonprofit, this year being the Young Black & Brilliant Book Club. Using the transformative power of books, YB&B fosters literacy and life skills for our local youth. Items will be available for sale throughout the convention in the art show. Please stop by to see what we have to offer---it's all for a good cause! If you would like to donate an item, please drop it off in the art show with a staff member. Reach out to us with questions at charities@norwescon.org.

Finding Your Way Around

We're looking forward to seeing you at the end of the month at the DoubleTree. Please note that on-site parking fills up quickly. If you are not staying at the hotel the train is a good option for getting to the venue. There are also multiple parking lots within walking distance due to the proximity to the airport.

Once you arrive at the hotel you will pick up your badge from registration in the grand foyer. Reg opens at 9 a.m. Thursday and the first program begins at 2 p.m., so take time to familiarize yourself with the various locations. Guidebook has maps! Workshop signups are at the info table across from registration, with most workshops occurring on the Maxis' Level at the top of the tower. Open gaming is in Cascade 11 and scheduled gaming can be found in the Rotundas (past the pool at the junction of Wings 4 and 5).

The convention office opens at 9 a.m., and can be found in Wing 7. The Speculative Film Fest is showing blocks of short films in Evergreen 1 & 2 on Thursday and Friday, with a Best-Of on Sunday. More schedule details are available on the website and Guidebook. Download the Guidebook app before you arrive for the best convention experience.

Hotel check-in starts at 3 p.m. If you are at loose ends, please consider stopping by the volunteer table in the convention lobby. Haven't purchased your membership yet? It's not too late, get a membership now before our final price increase on the 28th.

Norwescon 46 will be March 28--31, 2024 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Seattle Airport in SeaTac, Washington. Join us for a weekend of sci-fi and fantasy fun!
