ConGlomeration 2018

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 2018 will be held Easter Weekend — March 30 to April 1, 2018 — 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.
