Locus reported that it was smaller than typical for Westercon with only a thousand members. There were only 30 costumes on the masquerade. Highlights included an interview with Theodore Sturgeon. The FGoH speech was so filled with in-jokes that Locus though it was understood by no more than 6 people. Bill Rotsler took part in a cartoonist war and a 50th birthday party.
H. L. Gold was recovering from a stroke, so his GoH speech (the editorial from Galaxy's 2th anniversary issue) was read by someone else. Charles Burbee gave a "rambling presentation" of the FAAn Awards.
