From 1997 to 2009, the fans of Gargoyles have pulled together to celebrate the show we love so much. Our camaraderie has been a joy and an inspiration. In the twelve years since that first small convention in New York City, many of us have forged lifelong friendships, grown both personally and professionally, and taken away unique experiences from the phenomenon that is Gargoyles fandom.
But, just as a gargoyle can no more stop protecting the castle than breathing the air, eventually all good things must come to an end.
We, the fans, have all taken Gargoyles full circle. It is with bittersweet regret that the staff of The Gathering of the Gargoyles announces that this year's convention will be the last. Thirteen conventions have made for a run lasting longer than many of us ever imagined when we gathered for the first time in 1997, and for that we should all be very proud. But do not despair, as we are most certainly going out with a bang!
We are very happy – no, we are ecstatic – to announce that joining us for our final outing will be none other than the voice of Demona herself, Marina Sirtis! She joins an all-star guest list that already includes Gargoyles voice actors Keith David (Goliath), Thom Adcox (Lexington), and Elisa Gabrielli (Obsidiana). And lest we forget, Greg Weisman, the creator of the show, will be joining us, as well, along with at least a dozen other guests from the Gargoyles writing and production team.
So please join us in our last hurrah, our shout in the night, our 13th Annual and final Gathering of the Gargoyles. This will be the one to remember. This will be your last chance to experience The Gathering before it's all over for good. It's not too late to grab it. Let's make this a party to remember!

There was hardly any good cartoon shows in the 90s. I can name ten that were good and proud to say that Gargoyles is in that list. I mean the visual concept of a castle on top of a huge skyscraper was amazing. And what show has the voices of the Next Generation cast, Biggles and Professor Arturo from Sliders in one cartoon series? If only Disney weren't so quick to cancel it...
By the way this finally gives me an excuse to ask a question that's been bothering me for years now. In Star Trek: Generations Riker says at the end he wants to live forever, which according to IMDB is apparently a direct reference to Gargoyles as we all know his character in this show wanted immortality as well. But does that mean Gargoyles came first? Didn't the cartoon air after Generations was released into cinemas?
