Tonopah Convention Center / Old Tonopah Library / Mizpah Hotel
Science Fiction Convention with Fantasy and Steampunk programming
Westercon is an annual SF/Fantasy convention that is held in different cities in Western North America (plus Hawaii), hosted by a different group each year. The 2022 Westercon in Tonopah, Nevada, the last of the big Nevada silver boom towns, takes as its theme 'The Weird, Weird West' as we're surrounded by real-life steampunk from the silver-mining days, purported ghosts in the Mizpah Hotel, nearby Area 51, and the World Famous Clown Motel. Membership is limited to 450 attending members.
