Proud Hosts of DemiCon

DemiCon, Des Moines’ annual science fiction, fantasy, and gaming convention, is Des Moines’ best kept secret. It is also our signature event, running continuously for over 30 years.

The convention has something to offer for everyone:

  • Live Music
  • Filking
  • Cosplay and Masquerade
  • Contests
  • Anime
  • Art Show and Art Auction
  • Live Action Role Playing (LARP)
  • and of course Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Gaming!

The convention is normally held at the Holiday Inn Northwest, 4800 Merle Hay Road, Des Moines, IA at the end of April/beginning of May.

Visit the full convention website for registration and other details:

Semi-Annual Constitution Collective aka SACC

Summer SACC is held Labor Day Weekend.

Winter SACC is held New Year’s Eve Weekend.

Both are held at the Holiday Inn Northwest, 4800 Merle Hay Mall.

SACC is a semi-annual gathering of DMSFFS membership and friends to review bylaws, have workshops, and do a little charity, all while having fun!

Basically we get together and have fun at the Holiday Inn Northwest, the same hotel where we host DemiCon. You can come and go as you like. It is free though we ask for a donation of food for the potluck, some volunteer time, and/or a monetary donation.

We take over a couple of rooms on the 5th floor for our hospitality suite as well as the Minnesota Room for gaming/events and the Indiana Room for DemiCon Lites and the DMSFFS meeting.

We also have a charity aspect for the weekend where we create an item for another non-profit or for DemiCon to be sold for the charity that is being sponsored.

You can make a hotel reservation by calling the hotel directly at 515-278-4755. We will have a room block available to stay in.
