ConGregate 6 (2019)

The Beginnings

ConGregate was founded in 2013 in response to StellarCon's need to go on hiatus. Without StellarCon, there was going to be lack of a general science fiction convention in the Triad region of North Carolina. Previous members of the StellarCon committee, as well as some of founding members of Trinoc*coN, got together and decided to begin a new convention to fill the upcoming void.

The core group founded ConGregate Productions, Inc., which in turn ran the first ConGregate in 2014, in Winston-Salem, NC. The following year, the old host hotel for StellarCon, which was now under new ownership, reached out to ConGregate and an arrangement was made to bring the convention to High Point, NC.

Below, you can find information about each of the ConGregate conventions that have been held.
