Midwest or Midwestern Fandom generally refers to fans in the U.S. states comprising the historical Northwest Territory -- Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin -- plus Ontario, Canada, and more specifically, to the circle of those fans who attend Midwestcon.

Midwestern fen are known as hard partiers. That Bob Tucker hailed from the Midwest no doubt contributed. This is the region the originated All-Night Fandom, that birthed the slan shack and the propeller beanie and is home to the original relaxacon.

It was also infamously referred to as the Wimpy Zone by an East Coast smof.
