(Did you mean a different Necronomicon?)

NecronomiCon: The Cthulhu Mythos Con is a biennial convention in Providence, RI, which focuses on the works of H. P. Lovecraft and his Cthulhu Mythos. It is a cross between a fannish convention and a mundane conference, and is held in odd-numbered years on the weekend closest to the August 20th birthday of H. P. Lovecraft.

Regular programming includes panels on the literary, scholarly, artistic, media, and gaming aspects of Lovecraft and his works, as well as on other individuals who have influenced or been influenced by him. Other attractions include the vendors' rooms, art shows, film showings, gaming, author readings and signings, walking tours, and the infamous Cthulhu Prayer Breakfast.

The original convention ran from 1993 to 2001, and the first two were held in Danvers, MA, before the venue was moved to Providence. The con resumed (under new management) in 2013. It is sponsored by the Lovecraft Arts & Sciences Council.
