NecronomiCon Providence is a celebration of weird fiction and its roots in the city of Providence. It is a four-day convention that features panels and talks by experts, authors, artists, and historians who are influenced by the life and works of H.P. Lovecraft. It also includes Lovecraft-themed gaming, creative workshops, art exhibits, films, concerts, walking tours, and special events. With its broad, citywide programming, NecronomiCon Providence encourages participants out into the streets to experience and explore the very locales that inspired the writer himself.
