What is this all about?

We are bidding to bring the 15th North American Science Fiction Convention (North American Science Fiction Convention) to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada in 2023.

About Winnipeg

A joining of the Assiniboine River (flowing West to East) into the Red River (which flows from South to North), people have gathered here to trade, talk, and entertain each other for hundreds, nay, thousands of years. Competing trading forts grew up on both sides of the Red River at this waterway junction, and a city has grown around it. There is a long standing tradition of many different peoples coming together here. From Somalian cuisine, to Ukrainian dance troupes, to Indigenous hoop dancers, we celebrate the many cultures of the wonderful mosaic that is Winnipeg. We look forward to showing you all the wonderful attractions of Winnipeg when we host the 2023 NASFiC. We appreciate your vote!
