MidSouthCon is presented by Mid-South Science and Fictions Conventions, Inc. a 501(c)3 non-profit cooperation who uses the convention to promote education and raise money for charities like Literacy Mid-South and the Science Fiction Writers of America Emergency Medical Fund. Over the years we have raised over $65,000 for our charities.

MidSouthCon is the longest-running annual ran-run multi-genre Science Fiction Convention in the Mid-South. It covers a diverse section of fannish culture that includes Science Fiction, Fantasy, Science, Comics, Horror, Education, Costuming, Anime, and Gaming. MidSouthCon has an average of 2200 attendees, including over 100 authors, editors, publishers, scientists, artists and other guests and panelists. It features more then 200 hours of programming, including panels, our annual Art and and Charity Auctions, Masquerade costume contest, and more. There is also hundreds of hours of gaming running non-stop throughout the weekend.

In addition to all the programming and gaming, MidSouthCon has all the staples of traditional science fiction conventions, including a first class Art Show featuring art for sale by artists from across the country, a well-stocked Dealer's Room with vendors selling a wide variety of genre items, and a Con-Suite with free sodas and munchies where you can quench your thirst, sate your appetite, and schmooze with other fen.
