MCFI, the sponsoring organization

Massachusetts Convention Fandom, Inc. (MCFI) was created in 1974 by the people who ran the first Noreascon. Its purpose was to bid for a Boston Worldcon in 1980, which became Noreascon Two (1980). MCFI later ran Noreascon Three (1989), and Noreascon Four (2004).

MCFI also ran Smofcon 3 (1986), Smofcon 15 in 1997, Smofcon 25 in 2007, Smofcon 35 in 2017, Ditto 11 in Newport, RI, November 6-8, 1998, and the 25th World Fantasy Convention in Providence, RI, November 4-7, 1999.

Most recently, MCFI hosted Costume-Con 37, March 22-25, 2019, at the Boston North Shore DoubleTree in Danvers, MA (just eight miles from Salem!) and Relaxacon 2021, October 15-17, 2021 & Relaxacon 2022, May 13-15, 2022 at the Corsair and Cross Rip Oceanfront Hotel in Dennisport, MA.
