Windycon is contractually obligated to hold an event at the Westin Lombard starting November 13, 2020. We are aware of the Illinois Governor's recent proposal for reopening the state and how it might impact our ability to hold the convention as scheduled, but we continue to plan to hold the convention in accordance with our contract. If and when that situation changes, we will let you know.

Please be assured that we are prepared to rollover memberships in the case that the event is cancelled or postponed. We take both your health and your finances seriously.

Thank you for your patience in these difficult times and stay tuned; we'll be updating with more information as it becomes available.


ISFiC, Inc., which sponsors Windycon 47 in 2020, is monitoring the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak at the local, state, and federal levels. Currently, we are still anticipating hosting Windycon on November 13th-15th, 2020. We take the safety of all of our participants and venue partners very seriously, and we will continue to discuss precautionary measures to promote a healthy event space and abide by the policies and guidance of the Westin Yorktown Center Hotel.

We will keep this web page updated with the most up to date information regarding Windycon.

We offer our deepest sympathies for all of those affected by this unprecedented crisis, be it our fellow con runners, those whose employment and daily routine have been disrupted, or those who have contracted or have a loved one who has contracted the disease. Our thoughts are with you, and we wish you the best.
