Texas Science Fiction Conventions

A Guide to Science Fiction, Fantasy, Gaming, and Anime Conventions in Texas

Texas is proud to host the world in 2013 but one visit can't be enough. We want y'all to come back to Texas! Since the first science fiction convention in Texas way back in July 1958, science fiction fandom has blossomed like bluebonnets with conventions in every corner of the Lone Star State.


Ready to explore the strength and diversity of Texas convention fandom? There's nothing we love more than taking a convention roadtrip so here's a list of every Texas SF convention we could find plus a couple of the best cons from our neighbors across the Great Southwest.


If we missed one, please let us know. Enjoy.
