WikiConference North America 2024 will be the eleventh annual gathering of Wikimedians, institutions, and professionals from across North America, including Canada, the United States, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America. Our theme will be "Crossroads", inspired by the Indiana state motto and also alluding to the multiple meanings of the word—as the place where Wikimedians from across the continent cross paths, as well as what we hope will be a turning point for participants.

The event will be held at Indiana University Indianapolis in Indianapolis, Indiana, from October 4–6, 2024.

On Thursday, October 3, we plan a Wiki Culture Crawl during the day, and the opening night cocktail reception.

History

WikiConference North America User Group was formed in 2016 after that year's conference. It is a recognized Affiliate by the Wikimedia Foundation. The purpose of the User Group is to assure that the experiences gained at one conference are shared with future year conference organizers. The mission of the User Group includes coordinating the planning and hosting of events under our purview.

Additionally, the User Group documents best practices and shares lessons learned with other Wikimedia communities planning and hosting conferences and similar events. In 2020, 2021 and 2022 WikiConference North America were online. We returned in person in 2023.
