Hyatt Regency Hotel - Tech Center
Colorado's Longest Running and Premier Literary Science Fiction Convention in the Rocky Mountain region.
If you like reading, writing or discussing SF, Fantasy, Horror and all types of spectulative fiction you'll love this convention. Over 90 authors and artists appear at this convention each year, plus Guests of Honor: autors John Varley and Kelly Armstrong; artist Julie Dillion; and Chaz Kemp, local artist and this year's Toastmaster.
MileHiCon also has the largest Science Fiction and Fantasy artshow in the Colorado. Artists from across the country send both original pieces and prints for display and sale at the show each year.
MileHiCon is the home of the infamous "Critter Crunch," robotic sumo wresting. 2lb and 20lb divisions. On Sunday the combatents must either push the opponent off the playing surface or render them immobile. It is truely amazing to see what engineering accomplishments the creators come up with to achieve their goal. The Critter Crunch takes place on Sunday only.
MileHiCon will once again include THE AVISTRUM ACADEMY OF SORCERY to the activities available during the weekend. The Avistrum interactive theater in a school of magic and mystery has been a great success every year and we want to continue the fantasy and adventure for everyone. Join the story and mystery at the school, be sorted into a house, attend classes on magic, gain points for your house and be a part of the unfolding story.
Other activities that happen at the convention is: 24 hour gaming, anime room, independent videos, panel discussions, author autographs, author readings, Costume Contest on Saturday night, Kids programming, ConSuite, belly dancing, fan groups, and much more.
