I'm New Here – What is Arisia?
Each January for 35 years, the Arisia convention has brought together fans from around the world to celebrate the best and brightest stars in the science fiction and fantasy genres. Based in Boston, our four-day volunteer-run con features unique entertainment and learning opportunities that led to Arisia winning the title of Best Fan Gathering in the "Best in Boston" awards for 2016!
Join our enthusiastic community of attendees to learn, explore, engage, and make merry. Here is a small sample of what we have to offer:
- Many hours of panels and workshops
- Concerts, dances, and performances
- Video and tabletop gaming, and live-action roleplaying
- A world-class Art Show
- A Masquerade with entries from novices through award-winning masters
- A Dealers' Room with more than 50 vendors
Arisia is produced by Arisia, Inc., a volunteer-run, 501(c)3 non-profit volunteer-run organization whose purpose is to promote science fiction and fantasy. We are constantly striving to live up to our by-line as "New England's Largest, Most Diverse Sci-Fi & Fantasy Convention".
