July 5-9, 2023

Event Details

The largest yearly confab of Mensans anywhere, the American Mensa Annual Gathering started as a small, two-day meet-and-greet at the New York Belmont in 1963. The event now spans five days and features a sprawl of talks, games, and entertainment unlike any other.

The 2023 Annual Gathering is dropping anchor on the East Coast, and we're going to make a real splash on the Harbor! It's always been a favorite way to socialize, learn, and explore, but this year we're benefiting from a wealth of expertise in the D.C. area to provide a first-class programming experience. Watch for a reimagined feel to go along with AG staples such as Spark!, tours, games, and tournaments.

Our Home base, on the waterfront

The Hilton Baltimore Inner Harbor offers an unforgettable waterfront experience you don't want to miss.

Relax and recharge after a day of reunions and thought-provoking programming, enjoy delicious seafood dishes fresh from the harbor, or grab a gourmet coffee at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. Adjacent to Oriole Park at Camden Yards and surrounded by downtown dining near the inner harbor area.

A Family-friendly Adventure

Sponsored by the Mensa Foundation, Spark! programming offers our youngest attendees the chance to have fun, build new friendships, and make lasting memories of their own time at the AG.

We bring in professional educators from various fields to present fun, interactive programs where kids ages 4-12 have the chance to learn through new experiences, explore a variety of topics and events, and have their own AG adventure.
