The Mad 3 Party was a science fiction fanzine by Laurie Mann, Pat Vandenberg, and then Leslie Turek.

The Mad 3 Party was founded by Laurie Mann in 1984 as a newsletter for the bid for Worldcon. She had handed it over to Pat Vandenberg who edited it for a couple of years before passing it on to Leslie Turek in 1986 who made it the Noreascon 3 newsletter. It was under Leslie's editorship that the The Mad 3 Party won the Hugo Award for Best Fanzine in 1990.

The Mad 3 Party was published in Cambridge, Massachusetts, U.S.A. from 1984 to 1990. 38 issues were released.

Contributors included George Flynn.

It was described by Chuq Von Rospach, in Electronic OtherRealms #25, as "More than you ever wanted to know about running a Worldcon, the Noreascon 3 fanzine."

Leslie Turek had previously co-edited, with Cory Panshin, six issues of the MITSFS fanzine Twilight Zine from 1966 to 1967.
