Welcome to the Conbust 2016 website! We are currently under construction.

Conbust 2016 runs from April 1st to April 3rd!

More info coming soon!


ConBust is a sci-fi/fantasy/anime/gaming convention put on each spring by students at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts. This three-day event provides fans of various geekdoms the opportunity to gather and enjoy their interests as a whole. Panels and workshops, as well as many artists, vendors, and tabletop/LARP games, can be found in great abundance throughout the weekend. And of course, we have a fabulous array of guests who will be attending and presenting panels.
What sets ConBust apart from most other sci-fi, fantasy, anime, and/or gaming conventions is its focus on the female members of the participating community. While the various realms of geekdom remain stereotypically male-dominated, ConBust is held to celebrate the work and participation of women amongst these genres.

Prices for the con can be found under the "Register" tab!
