Mid American Science Fiction and Fantasy Conventions, Inc. 

Third Time's the Charm!

Kansas City has won the right to host the 2016 Worldcon! For more information, see the MidAmeriCon II web site.


MidAmericon was the name of the 34th World Science Fiction Convention (WorldCon). Also known as "Big Mac," the convention was a catalyst for the growth of science fiction fandom in a 4 state area and was the first WorldCon that many current con runners attended. Mid American Conventions, was not directly involved in Big Mac, but many MAC members participated in that convention and its heritage. 

In 2003 Mid American Conventions conducted an unsuccessfull bid to host a second Kansas City area WorldCon on the 30th anniversary of the first. In 2006 Mid American Conventions conducted a scond bid to host the WorldCon   Unfortunately, the vote did not end favorably for us and we encourage you to visit and attend the 2009 WorldCon in Montreal, Quebec.

What is MAC

Mid American Science Fiction and Fantasy Conventions, Inc. consists of science fiction fans from the midwest and throughout the United States with experience working local and regional conventions, as well as WorldCon. 

Our group hosted the 1997 Nebula Awards Weekend in Kansas City. It went over so well we did it again in 2002. Our annual convention, ConQuesT (now in its fourth decade), is renowned as one of the finest (and most fun) cons in the midwest. Members of our committee were instrumental in the founding of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame and were also part of the group hosting the 2003 World Horror Convention in Kansas City.
