Convention Days

Commemorating the Birth of a Movement

Held near the end of July each year, Convention Days has been a signature event in Seneca Falls for many years. This annual event allows visitors to engage with women’s history, focusing on the revolutionary 1848 Seneca Falls Women’s Rights Convention through art, storytelling, speakers, and special programming.


What is Convention Days?

Convention Days is an annual event held in the spirit of the 1848 Women's Rights Convention in Seneca Falls. Not only does the event commemorate the convention anniversary, it draws on the tenets of community, engagement, and activism that made the original convention a crucible of change.
Talks and presentations by scholars and people active in the field of women's history illuminate historical topics, while living history presentations and family programs provide interactive opportunities for learning.
Just as the 1848 convention brought together people from different geographical areas and walks of life in support of women's rights, Convention Days does the same for a modern audience.
