Celebrate Creativity!

Since the dawn of time, we have always had stories. These stories recorded the wondrous, the fantastical, the dystopian and the utopian. The past and the future. Our muses have long intertwined story with our hopes, dreams, and fears. This is the year we release those muses and follow their dealings with our inner worlds. This is year we celebrate the old myths, and create the new ones. The year we weave a new story. Join us, for a celebration of creativity in all of its myriad forms. Join us, and experience story as you have never experienced it before.

MuseCon is a weekend-long convention for artists, musicians, inventors, gadgeteers, makers, tinkerers, and creative people of all ages.

To get started, you will need to register for the convention. Please see the Registration page for details.
