ConGregate 2020

What is ConGregate?

ConGregate is a completely volunteer run, speculative fiction convention held in the Piedmont Triad region of North Carolina.

We host a fair amount of interactive programming, in addition to traditional programming (like panel discussions, gaming, concerts, a costume contest and charity events). The interactive nature of our con allows fans an opportunity to interact directly with the guests and other fans. In other words, we're a lot more than just a large exhibit hall filled with vendors and guests.

Hawaiian Shirt Friday

Each year, Congregate remembers contributors that we have lost from the science fiction and fantasy world. The tradition began in memory of Aaron Allston, who was well known for his love of Hawaiian shirts. We encourage everyone to wear a Hawaiian shirt on Friday, July 17.
