Science Fiction Conventions held in Baltimore County

Science fiction conventions are gatherings of fans of various forms of speculative fiction including science fiction and fantasy. Historically, science fiction conventions had focused primarily on literature, but the purview of many extends to such other avenues of expression as movies and television, comics, animation, and games.

There are a few conventions in Maryland, three of which are held at the Hunt Valley Marriott throughout the year. Balticon focuses on the printed page. Shore Leave focuses on the latest science-fiction films and Star Trek. The Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention encompasses the classics and is held every September.
