Looking for 2015? There's a page for that year too.

Picking a date for your event is never easy. Something to consider are major regional and national events that would also appeal to your local pool of skeptics. It's never good to realize several of your key contributors are going to be out of town at the national event on your chosen date.

Now that there are over 50 different skepticism-related events worldwide each year (including Skepticamps), potential for conflicts like this abound. If you add in purely atheist, humanist, secular and freethought events (which also appeal to scientific skeptics) the problem gets worse.

To that end, we've researched which major events have already published their dates for 2014, and collected that information here. Naturally you can't avoid all of them, but at least knowing what is out there versus your planned dates lets you ask the right questions during your date selection discussions.

2014 Event DatesEdit

Here are the 2014 event dates we've discovered so far, we will endeavor to keep this updated. This does not include Skepticamps, which are listed on the front page of this site. You can also refer to the skepticism guide on Lanyrd for a constantly updated list. Most of the links in the table below lead to individual event pages on Lanyrd, where you can find more information.
