Welcome to Philcon!

Currently, it is our intention to host an in-person Philcon at the Cherry Hill Crowne Plaza, if legal and feasible.

Join us for the 84th anniversary of the world's first and longest-running conference on science fiction, fantasy, and horror! Philcon 2021 will take place on November 19-21, 2021 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Cherry Hill, NJ.

Started in 1936, Philcon features cutting-edge programming about literature, art, television, film, anime, comics, science, gaming, costuming and cosplay, music, and other topics of interest to fans of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror. We will also have many other attractions, such as our awesome Art Show and Auction; a Vendors Room full of unique merchandise; Children’s/Family programming; a full-featured Tabletop Gaming room; our Writer’s Workshop (featuring professional authors and editors); Concerts; Dorian’s Dance Party, our Masquerade/Costume Competition, and more!
