Attend an event
Whether you want to travel across town or across the country, whether you're looking for an intense learning experience or serious leisure opportunities, American Mensa offers a wide array of events to satisfy the interests of our diverse membership. At least one of them is right for you; plan now to attend!
- Annual Gathering
Whether you would enjoy meeting old friends in Phoenix, dancing in Denver, touring the French Quarter in New Orleans or going green in Portland, American Mensa's Annual Gathering is just the ticket for your travel and intellectual needs.
Colloquium provides a forum for Mensans and the general public to explore, debate and evaluate a major issue of long-range importance to society.
While CultureQuest® might be considered a trivia game or competition, its intent has always been to promote and test cultural literacy. Mensan teams of up to five members gather in their neighborhoods on a single day across the U.S. and Canada and compete for cash prizes and bragging rights.

- Regional Gatherings
Each weekend-long Regional Gathering, or RG, usually features speakers; games; a Hospitality room with food, beverages and lots of socializing; and often a little something special, a signature program or activity that the hosting local group injects into the event to make it their own.
