Fans and experts from around the world will meet again in Fort Morgan, Colorado to celebrate Philip K. Dick and his work on August 9th through August 11th for the 2019 Philip K. Dick Festival. This is the second festival. The first one was held in the same location two years ago in 2017.
This location has been selected because Fort Morgan is the final resting place of Philip K. Dick and his fraternal twin sister, Jane.

More information is included on the Philip K. Dick Festival website.
I have completed some major revisions to the Philip K. Dick Festival web site. Since the Philip K. Dick Festival is dormant for the time being, I decided to also add the other festivals, conferences, conventions, etc. to the site so it could be a central location to find out about all large gatherings of Philip K. Dick fans and scholars.
Apologies for the late notice; this event snuck up on me.
The Third Annual Philip K. Dick International Film Festival of Science Fiction, Fantastic Film, Science and the Supernatural will be held on January 16, 17, and 18 2015 at Tribeca Cinemas, Cervantes Institute and other venues in New York City.

Unfortunately due to logistic problems that the Philip K. Dick Festival committee was not able to overcome, the 2014 Philip K. Dick Festival has been postponed. The Festival won’t be taking place at University of California, Irvine, but in another location that would have the space plus be able to meet the other logistical issues.
The Philip K. Dick Festival committee would like to hold the next festival in Orange County, California because that is where Philip K. Dick spent the last several years of his professional life. The Philip K. Dick Festival committee has also shared that the event won’t take place before the end of 2014. More information will be shared about the new location and the new dates as soon as possible.
