NecronomiCon Providence is a many-faceted convention exploring the works of Howard Phillips Lovecraft and fellow writers of Weird Tales, past and present.
Our theme is The Rational and the Supernatural – an exploration of the intersection of science and art that lays at the foundation of the “Cthulhu Mythos” genre.
We seek to pay proper homage to The Old Gentleman of Providence and his literary offspring, including numerous activities to highlight the town HPL loved and called home – PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island.

As plans move forward to create the definitive celebration of Lovecraft, we are seeking sponsors and local organizations to collaborate with in order to implement this long-overdue Rite for Providence’s own begotten. After more than a decade since it last drew breath, the essential salts have been gathered once more. We seek to resurrect the memories of the Great Old Ones before us, and begin the next chapter of the NecronomiCon. August, 2013…
