What is ConVivial?
ConVivial is a convention designed by fans for fans. It’s an event meant to highlight geek enthusiasm for all things pop culture, from Science Fiction in all its forms to fan centric music to tabletop gaming and cosplay. All with an idea that we’re all here to have fun. In short, a weekend-long celebration with other geeks.
ConVivial focuses on music and cosplay, but has strong accents on authors, podcasters, and gamers. With over 150 hours of programming, ConVivial strives to provide fun programming as an escape from your everyday schedule.
When looking for a name for our gathering, we had a lot of interesting ideas come up, but the one that resonated the best with us came from some Thesaurus searching. We were looking for something to capture what we are trying to bring uniquely to the convention scene; that being a focus not on one or more specific areas of Fandom, but one of getting together to have fun.
