About Us

Arisia was founded in 1988 to bring a fun science fiction convention to the Boston area that had something for everyone. Our first convention was in 1990. You can find a history of the Arisia convention, with each year’s Guests of Honor, here.

While the Arisia convention has new staff and leadership positions each year, the Arisia corporation works behind the scenes to help facilitate the convention and other Arisia events, while continuing to work toward our mission of the promotion of science fiction and related fandom in an open and diverse community.

This website retains historical information about the Arisia convention, as well as information about the corporate body. If you have any questions or suggested changes to the website, please email
