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.

While OR e-Con was a free event as a mini-con, we are requesting donations both to cover the costs of the virtual event and for use elsewhere in the organization. As always, the various OSFCI charitable funds (Clayton, Petrey) are also open to donations. We apologize that we were unable to provide a link prior to where donations can be made prior to the event, but we are happy to unveil the link and to invite our followers, fellow fans, and those who miss a bit of the magic of Orycon to donate:
