    About Space City Con!
    Space City Con is an all-ages festival of comics, sci-fi, fantasy, gaming, literature, and art, in the spirit of Houston, Texas! Envisioned as a "geek festival with free parking," SCC is conveniently located at the Westin Galleria convention center & hotel, August 10 – 12, 2012. Our goal is to put on the best convention possible for current generations of fans, and instill a love of , comics, Sci-fi and fantasy in the next generation.

    Space City Con is the Gulf Coast’s newest fan culture convention, offering a robust mix of authors, artists, sci-fi, fantasy, comics, gaming, fan group networking, literature, writing workshops and more, in a venue meant to be more approachable to families and children. It was founded in 2012, and will be held at the Westin Galleria convention center & hotel, August 10 – 12, 2012. Conceived as a “Geek Festival with free parking”, the event is attached to the 4th largest mall in America, in the 4th largest city in America—Houston, Texas. The grand Galleria Mall boasts 375 stores, a large food court, ice rink, various restaurants with a taste of Texas.

    Just as Houston has a broad economic mix in aerospace, energy, manufacturing, transportation; it boasts the world’s largest concentration of healthcare and research institutions. Houston also has the first-ranked port in the United States and has always been home to an ever-growing international community, along with the famous NASA Johnson Space Center and Mission Control. In this same way, Space City Con will be a gathering of fans of all ages, with an exchange of pop culture passions. More than entertainment, a place to escape for a while, forge lasting friendships, and connect with talented creators across a spectrum of genres.

    For the inaugural year, Space City Con embraces the Kids Need to Read foundation, since our founders consider these elements as fuel for creative thinking, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and most of all, expanding the boundaries of what is known, into dreams and a yearning for what is unknown, what is unseen…but can be painted by the incredible human mind and spirit. Space City Con wishes to pass on the torch from one generation to the next, echoing the cry for “Inspiring Imagination!”
