Annual Gathering Programming

Mr.* Mensa Pageant

A highlight event at each year’s Annual Gathering, the Mr. Mensa Pageant is equal parts prowess, parody, and pandering, proceeds from which directly benefit the Mensa Foundation.


Sponsored by the Mensa Foundation, Spark! comprises three days of structured programming for kids ages 4-12, divided into age groups, enabling children to have their own AG experience. (Registration for Spark! must be completed in addition to AG registration.)

Because You Are What You Eat

Before it hits our plates, there’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes with what we eventually eat. The ongoing developments within our food supply are staggering. This Colloquium will feature six sessions: Plant Nutrition & Alternative Proteins, Food Safety & Security, Food Traceability & Transparency, Developments in Agricultural Technology to Feed the Planet, Our Evolving Health Views on Fats, and the interactive Physiology of Taste.

In addition to what some have described as a “palatial” Games Room, the Annual Gathering features a full schedule of volunteer-hosted tournaments in its own dedicated space. From dice games to deck-building — and more! — sign up below to host your own AG tournament.
