We had a great time at Balticon 58 and hope you did too. Balticon 59 will be held in May 2025 in Baltimore, with some very special guests as well as new and exciting events and programs. The B59 webpage will be up soon and we will keep adding to it all year long.

Balticon is a hybrid convention. It’s set-up to welcome in-person and remote attendance. We stream as much of the program as finances allow. As a result, people from all over the world can enjoy Balticon.
