FUNcon (or Future Unbounded Science Fiction Show and Convention) was a general SF convention held in Los Angeles for two years. It was sponsored by Future Unbounded which was run by Chuck Crayne and Bruce Pelz.

When the rights to host the 1968 Worldcon was won by a Bay Area group which it with the Westercon they'd already been chosen to run and scheduled it for Labor Day, the July 4th weekend (July 4-7, 1968) became available. Chuck Crayne proposed an LA-area event to fill the weekend – F-UNCon – and a group to run it, Future Unbounded. The members of Future Unbounded included Crayne, Bruce Pelz, Dian Crayne and others.
