Last Major Update:

At this point we have checked for 2020 dates on all events. Some websites were still holding off on releasing a date, whereas other websites had not been updated at all for this year.
All events showing 2020 dates need to be verified to confirm that changes to the schedule were not made by the organizers after publication here, due to COVID-19. We do not run these events, and would hate for anyone to go out of their way only to find the event had been canceled after releasing a date. Please click through to the event website to confirm! Be safe and have a great fall!
