Marcon is a full-spectrum fantasy and science fiction convention based in Columbus, Ohio. It is operated by the Columbus-based Science Oriented Literature, Art, and Education Foundation, a non-profit educational corporation. The name is derived from "Multiple Alternative Realities Convention."

Marcon offers a dozen tracks of programming in art, costuming, fan, filk, literary, media, and science, as well as events and displays including a masquerade, art show, dealers room, multiple 24-hour video tracks, gaming space, and at least one dance. Marcon runs a children's track of programming that has included independent filmmakers helping the kids create their own movies, and many hands-on art, costuming, and science programs. It is the oldest and largest sci-fi convention in the state of Ohio.

Carrie Vaughn is the Author Guest of Honor for 2020. Sara Felix is Artist Guest of Honor.
