List of multigenre conventions

This is a list of multi-genre conventions.[nb 1] These cons typically do not cater to one particular genre (i.e., anime, science fiction, furry fandom, etc.), but instead cover the gamut of these pop culture phenomena without specifying itself as a specific convention of that variety. Many of these conventions were at one time specialized conventions, but have since spread out into multiple genres. Examples of this are San Diego Comic-Con and Animation On Display.

The list is divided up by location, and each convention includes dates during which it is typically held in parentheses. The dates listed are approximate or traditional time periods for each convention; for more details, please see the article or website of the individual convention(s) concerned.
