Convention Lists & Calendar Sites
Back in March I wrote an article on tips and tricks for using internet search to find conventions. The part of that article that really seemed to excite people, though, was the short list at the end providing some of the convention calendar sites that I often use when assembling our Conventions This Month posts.
So, here’s a fuller collection of good convention lists and con calendar sites:
Anime Conventions Lists
Comic Conventions Lists
- Comicon.com; home of the endless comic convention as well as a pretty good list of events
- Wikipedia’s entry for “List of Comic Book Conventions”
- Wizard World’s Comic Cons calendar; they produce many of the big comic conventions.
Furry Conventions Lists
- Wikipedia’s entry for “List of Furry Conventions”
Gaming Conventions Lists
General Calendar Sites For Fan Conventions
- Ansible International Events List
- Convention Scene
- The Conventionist App’s list of Upcoming Events; lists all the cons that have schedules available through their mobile phone application – there are quite a few big fan events in there.
- Costume.com’s Conventions list
- Creation Entertainment’s calendar; this is the company that produces a lot of the Official conventions for media properties like Star Trek, Twilight, etc.
- Fanboy’s Convention List
- Green Tentacles’ Containment
- Upcoming Conventions
Horror Conventions Lists
Science Fiction & Fantasy Convention Lists
Steampunk Convention Lists
- Convention Fans Blog’s own “Upcoming Steampunk Conventions for 2011″article
- TOR.com’s “Gearing up for 2011: A Steampunk Convention List”article
And, of course, you can always just search Convention Fans Blog itself for various convention lists.
