Con-Fusion 2023: The Final Frontier

Con-Fusion 2023: The Final Frontier

Mesquite, the Final Frontier, join our ongoing mission to discover strange new worlds and bring the mysteries of Space and Science Fiction to Phoenix!

Blast off with local authors and artists to unveil the fact and fiction of Sci-fi at three panels at 10:00, 1:00, and 3:00. Voyage to our pop-up bookstore for signed copies from featured authors. Visit the “Author’s Lounge” to ask about the mysteries of the universe, or at least how to write a good Sci-fi plot.

Little Jedi can join the rebellion and create their own Light Sabers. Watch out for the Stormtroopers and Mandalorians that might be wandering the library! Teens can learn the myths and meanings of the Zodiac while creating their own astrology charts. All projects available while supplies last.  

Local artists and artisans will have Science Fiction and Space merchandise for sale. 

Cosplay is encouraged, please check all prop weapons with our security staff.
