US RPG Conventions Comprehensive List

Help a fellow RPGer out and please add information about your favorite Con to this list...
Entries would be most helpful if they include:
1) Name of the Con (and a URL would also be nice)
2) Typical MONTH that the Con occurs - since the actual dates change from year to year and I want to use this list for the foreseeable future, the month is about as accurate as we can get
3) Location Con is usually held (in terms of city and state, not actual buildings)
4) Number of days Convention is held
5) Size of Convention (in terms of attendance, if known)
Some Things for Clarity of Purpose:
A) List Every Con I've Heard Of? No, I am really looking for people to list Conventions that they have direct experience with - and by direct experience, I don't mean planning, I mean attending (planning is good too, just not required).
B) Do I want international cons added? I agree that maybe this should be the big list of US Cons, and have other lists for international ones. I have amended the title of this list to reflect that change.
2) Do I want Cons that include boardgames? Videogames? I would like for any Con to be focused on RPGs with boardgames and/or video games a secondary influence (or at the very least, an equal influence). Not interested in boardgame only or videogame only cons. For that reason, this list is NOT cross-posted to those domains, and resides squarely on the RPGG side of the fence.
Feel free to add any additional information that you feel appropriate to your entry!
