Lunacon is an annual science fiction and fantasy convention organized by the New York Science Fiction Society / The Lunarians, Inc. First held in May 1957, it is the oldest science fiction convention in New York state, and is generally held on the third weekend of March.
The programming is a typical fannish convention, including panel discussions on a variety of topics, anime, filk music, crafts workshops, an art show and auction, a games room, and a large masquerade.
The original logo for Lunacon was illustrated by Wally Wood and is known as "The Loonie." Each year, one of the guest artists creates their own variation on the logo for the convention.
In 1983 Lunacon was the first science fiction convention to feature an anime room which was called the "Starblazers Video Room"
and, according to the program book was run by Michael Pinto, Moya Price, and Robert Fenelon.
