Days until ConGregate & SAGA

What is ConGregate?

ConGregate is a completely volunteer run, science fiction convention (conference), held in the Winston-Salem, NC. We host a fair amount of interactive programming, in addition to traditional programming (panel discussions, concerts, costuming, short film festival, and charity auction). The interactive nature of our con allows fans an opportunity to interact directly with the guests and other fans. In other words, we offer a lot more than just a large exhibit hall filled with vendors and guests.

We invite you to join us for our 10th Anniversary!


SAGA

SAGA logoBeginning in 2024, ConGregate will be partnering with SAGA, an excellent, professional development conference for writers. If you wish to attend SAGA, do not register for ConGregate. Your SAGA membership includes a membership to ConGregate.


Inclusion

At ConGregate, we pride ourselves in trying to provide an inclusive environment, and fully support all guests and fans, equally, regardless of race, color, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, physical appearance, body size, age, religion, or national origin.

Short Film Festival

Submissions for our second annual Short Film Festival are now open on Film Freeway.


Location

ConGregate will be at the Downtown Marriott (main con hotel) and the Embassy Suites in downtown Winston-Salem, NC. 

Note: The cost of hotel rooms went up for 2024... this is being driven by the current cost of labor (inflation).


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 12. 


Sponsorship Packages

We have started getting requests to sponsor ConGregate. To help facilitate that kindness, we have put together some sponsorship packages.
