Welcome to OryCon 42!

OryCon is Oregon’s premier, fan run, annual science fiction/fantasy convention held in Portland since 1979.  We are a 100% volunteer based production of Oregon Science Fiction Conventions, Inc. (OSFCI), which is a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)3 corporation.

A note to our patrons: Orycon 42 is still scheduled to occur on November 13-15th. We are hoping that by then, social distancing and stay-at-home orders will be panel topics rather than lifestyle changes. It is too early to tell how much Orycon will be ultimately affected, but right now, we are operating on the assumption that November is far enough away that changes will be small. That being said, planning is continuing, staff is being gathered, and Orycon is committing to being flexible if refunds, rollovers, or cancellations are needed. We are planning to see you all in November.

Red Lion Hotel, Jantzen Beach

Our Theme: “Pun and Parody in Science Fiction”

This year’s Guests of Honor:
