Want to Attend a Convention? Here is the Complete 2016 Con List!

Spread the love


Here is a compiled list that contains hundreds of cons around the world.  All cons outside of the U.S. are in Bold. With this many cons, I am sure you will find something near you.

This is by no means every con as there is no way we can capture them all, but if you see one we are missing then send us a note and we will gladly add it in.

Each month we will publish a list of cons that are coming up in the next month, we will also continually update this list. We already have some 2017 dates. Keep an eye open for the 2017 list coming soon.

UPDATED 10/24/16

We are no longer updating this list, Please check out the 2017 list for all conventions from November 2016 through December 2017

Correction – unless you only post the event on the first day (if it’s a multi-day event).

We only list the day that the convention starts, or the pages would end up miles longer.
