Windycon, now in its 39th year, is the Chicago area's oldest science-fiction convention. Run entirely by volunteers, it is held annually at the Westin Hotel in Lombard over a three-day weekend in early November. Science-fiction and fantasy fans of all stripes come together to talk about their favorite books and movies and to listen to guests and panelists from across the country and around the world. Weekend activities include panels, concerts, anime, a masquerade and costume contest, a dance, as well as a lively dealers' room with books, music, games and costume pieces for sale, and an art show where both amateur and professional artists display and sell their art. Fans can meet, mingle, and talk with the Guests of Honor, who are prominent authors, editors, artists, and musicians in the science-fiction genre.
