National Conventions

Each year Esperanto-USA holds an annual convention, known as a Landa Kongreso, hosted in a different region of the country – and sometimes in neighboring countries, with the help of their respective national Esperanto organizations.

In 2018, we will be holding our 66th annual convention in Seattle, Washington.

For more about the conventions, see this brief guide and also this report from 2017.
