Events and Conferences
Since its inception, TarValon.Net has participated in numerous Official Events each year. Some are organised by the Department of Events and Conferences, while other are conferences in which we participate as a group. There are also numerous unofficial local gatherings held all over the world by our members.
The Anniversary Party is held in North America. From 2002 to 2019, it was held during the spring. As of 2020, it is held during the fall.
Spring Fling is another event which is usually held in North America, during the spring. Previously it was called Fall Ball and it was held during fall, when the Anniversary Party used to be held in March.
Fall Ball was held in North America during the autumn. The last Fall Ball was in 2019; it was replaced by Spring Fling in 2023.

TarValon.Net organises gatherings at major science fiction and fantasy conferences. Currently, this is just one event, JordanCon. We maintained an official presence at Dragon*Con until 2012, when they discontinued their Wheel of Time track.

If several members live in the same area many will try to arrange unofficial meet ups every once in a while. Likewise, if another Tower member is coming to the area they may arrange to meet up, to show the visitor the area (even if it's just the inside of a pub).
