What we're about
Upcoming events (4+)
The Dark History & Horror Convention is an annual event showcasing the darker side of history, some of your favorite horror characters, the paranormal, artwork, authors, comics, and all things dark and creepy!
We do not try to glorify any of these people or the events!! They are however part of our culture and history, a part that is very important for us to remember and even learn from. True crime, gangsters, serial killers, spree killers, assassinations, public enemies, women's suffrage, the civil rights struggles, Native massacres, tragic events and just about anything not covered in the "history books".
We do this by bringing together a great collection of authors, artists and numerous others who are intimately familiar with these events and their effects. Join us as we bring together like minded individuals and create a network of friends and connections to share our passion for the darker side history and pop culture.
