FINNCON is the largest science fiction and fantasy-event in Finland and in Nordic countries. Its size, organization and visibility are comparable to Eurocons' corresponding features. FINNCON has been arranged since 1986. The nature of the event has its base on experiences of European and North American cons from Tom Ölander and other science fiction devotees. FINNCON has always presented science fiction and fantasy widely. View has been especially on literature, but also on movies, comics, the visual arts, theatre, music and the science fiction devotees themselves, the fandom. The event is always free of charge!
The FINNCON-BALTCON in Turku in summer 2003, also being the first EUROCON in the Nordic countries, gathered over 4000 visitors.
Also, at the same time there is Animecon III.
Finncon is organized in co-operation with Jyväskylä Arts Festival and Jyväskylä Science Fiction Society 42.
