That's right, you did post up a list too. I forgot about that one.
I've gone and found it, and linked to it in the post above, as it has location details (it doesn't need to be too up-to-date either).

Updated with next year's Nexus Fair dates.

If you know of any upcoming conventions like Supanova or Armageddon, post them here and I'll add them to the calendar. (or if you are a staff-member, you can edit the first post to add them in)

If someone has a flyer from the last Parra Fair for the dates of the next one, please post it up... or even the four 2014 Fairs if they listed all the dates.
