Westercon 71, Myths and Legends 6, was held July 4-8, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency in the Denver Tech Center in Denver, CO. The Literary GoH was Nancy Kress, Artist GoH was Jeff Sturgeon, Editor GoH was Rebecca Moesta, Science GoH was Lou Mayo, Filk Guests of Honor were Margaret Davis and Kristoph Klover, Fan Guests of Honor were Mem Morman and Kent Bloom, Entertainment GoH was Andrew Mayne, Heckler GoH was Connie Willis, and Master of Ceremonies was David Gerrold.

The con was chaired by Nikki Ebright. Attendance was approximately 750 members.

It was bid for by Westercon 71 - The Denver Bid which was sponsored by Stories for Students. In May 2017, Stories for Students dissolved and the convention was taken over by another non-profit, Shiny Garden. (The convention staff remained the same.) See 2018 Westercon Site Selection.

At the same time, because of problems with corkage, it moved from its original hotel, the Westin in Westminster, CO to the Hyatt Regency in the Denver Tech Center.
