  1. Everfree
    Supernatural Convention

  2. great job compiling a comprehensive list! Maybe add some of the Vancouver BC conventions? It's Canada but personally I still see it as PNW territory. Fan Expo Vancouver, NW Fanfest, and Anime Revolution are all great shows we cover on our website each year.
