ConGlomeration 2019

Easter Weekend | Crowne Plaza Louisville

About ConGlomerationJoin us at ConGlomeration, Louisville’s only multimedia sci-fi and fantasy convention run for fans, by fans. It’s 50 uninterrupted hours of family-friendly fandom.

ConGlomeration 2019 will be held Easter Weekend — April 19-21, 2019 — at the Crowne Plaza Louisville Hotel.

At ConGlomeration, the fan experience is about more than spending hundreds of dollars to stand in line for hours with only a generic celebrity photo and autograph to show for it.

Our members describe ConGlomeration as a geek family reunion.
