BayCon is a science fiction & fantasy convention in the San Francisco Bay area. Held for the first time in 1982, BayCon is traditionally held over Memorial Day weekend and features programming tracks and special guests from across the science fiction and fantasy genres.

In 1993, it was held at the Red Lion Inn in San Jose, CA. It billed itself as a relax-a-con and an alternative to Worldcon, which was held in San Fransisco that year.
