What is DucKon?

DucKon is Chicago’s annual family-friendly science fiction and fantasy convention, held in support of the Golden Duck Awards for excellence in children’s science fiction literature given at WorldCon. We’ve got something for everyone, from our fabulous Young Fan programming, science and literature panels, writer’s workshops and more. We run special events like Critter Crunch, Planet Blinkie where you can create your own circuit board with flashing LEDs, and the longest running original Klingon programming of any convention in the country. You can even watch electricity turn into music with the Masters of Lightning! We pride ourselves on being a family friendly convention with fun things to do for people of all ages and interests.
