Fandom Association of Central Texas

Thanks to everyone who attended!
The website for ArmadilloCon 31 will be up soon!

We Now Pronounce You Smart and Geeky!

Welcome to the ArmadilloCon 30 website. A place where you will become famous, fabulously wealthy, find true love and all of your dreams will come true. Okay, so maybe that won't happen, but you will at least find a portal into the world of weird in Austin, TX where once a year, the smartest people in town gather to celebrate their uniqueness and intelligence. Oh, and we talk about books too.

Wait, what?

A long time ago, some people who enjoyed the sci-fi genre got together and decided that Central Texas needed a literary sci-fi convention. SolarCon was born. Once those people figured out what they were doing (it took a couple of years), they created ArmadilloCon and it is still running to this day for a whole new fan base.

The primary focus of ArmadilloCon is literary science fiction, but that's not all we do -- we also pay attention to art, animation, science, media, and gaming. Every year, dozens of professional writers, artists and editors attend the convention. We invite you to attend the convention especially if you are a fan of reading, writing, meeting, sighting, feeding, knighting, and all the other things folks do at a sci-f/fantasy convention.

As an added bonus this year, we are one week after the 66th WorldCon in Denver, Colorado, so swing by Austin on your way home and meet the group that last year's Fan Guest of Honor Patty Wells calls "those crazy Texans".

3-Day memberships are $50 at the door.
