"OryCon is Oregon’s premier, fan run, annual science fiction/fantasy convention held in Portland since 1979. After taking our convention online for a free mini-con in 2020, we’re planning on hosting our con in person for Orycon 42 November 12th - 14th, 2021*! We are retaining our original theme for OryCon 42 of “Humor, Satire, and Parody in Science Fiction and Fantasy”.

With this in mind, we are pleased to announce that memberships are still available at the current rate of $50 until July 15th, 2021, with discounted rates for youth memberships. If you have not already done so, please register here.

The pricing schedule afterward is as follows:

$60 from July 16, 2021 until October 15, 2021
$75 at the door

As attendance may be subject to capacity limitations, we will be limiting our capacity. Previously purchased memberships prior to postponement of our in-person convention in 2020 are still currently registered, but for verification and confirmation of status, please email registration@orycon.org.

Each OryCon, we invite Guests of Honor from the science fiction and fantasy realms to be a part of our experience. For this year, we are proud to host our Author Guest of Honor, A. Lee Martinez, an award winning traditional fantasy novelist and author of The Constance Verity Trilogy. To stay in the loop for updates on our current and future Guests of Honor, visit our webpage for our Guests of Honor here.


As we are still hopeful that the current pandemic will keep improving throughout the Summer, our room block is open at The Red Lion Hotel on The River (located at Jantzen Beach). If you are planning to attend in person, now is the time to lock in your reservation, as rooms may be limited! You can book your room here.

We will be announcing our registration, vendors, and schedule as soon as our messenger pigeons return! To stay up to date, please be sure to visit our website at https://42.orycon.org/ or click “attending” on our event page on Facebook.


We're looking forward to seeing the friendly (potentially masked) faces of our members and fellow Sci-Fi/Fantasy fans! Let us know what you’re looking forward to or hoping for at this year’s OryCon!


*OryCon attendance capacity and in-person capability is subject to change depending on the current health emergency conditions and regulations in Oregon state and Multnomah County for November 2021. OryCon staff are working to ensure that this information and any changes on in-person vs online or postponement of OryCon will be communicated to all members as soon as possible.
