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."

In a letter to The Drink Tank, Lloyd Penney mentions that two parody issues of The Mad 3 Party were published by Boston Fandom in their bid for the 1989 Worldcon and "not only were the bid and fanzine parodied, so was I. Great fun." The same year, Yvonne Penney's newsletter The Party Times included reprints from The Mad 3 Party.

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