Do you love science fiction and fantasy? Join us at Boskone, the longest-running science fiction convention in New England!

Meet an impressive array of well-known figures in the field—including writers, artists, editors, publishers, musicians, scientists, gamers, bloggers, conrunners, reenactors, and fanzine editors.

Join more than 1000 fans and pros for a weekend filled with fannish things to do—panels, readings, kids activities, demonstrations, small-group discussions, filksinging, videos, games and more!

Friday free hours

Programming begins at 2:00 pm on Friday, February 19th and is free to the public from 2:00-6:00 pm. Memberships are required after 6:00 pm on Friday and throughout the duration of the convention.
