Lifelong Learning

More than anything, the Annual Gathering is about learning new things and visiting with friends, whether they are friends you've known for years or those you've just met.


Welcome to Louisville!Brimming with insightful programs, far-flung participants and playful exuberance, Mensa's Annual Gathering provides an unmatched venue for our members to showcase their creativity and ingenuity. This Independence Day, we invite you to connect with friends — old and new — and let your Unbridled Spirit run wild in the Bluegrass State.

Home to the legendary Kentucky Derby horse race and the "most exciting two minutes in sports," Louisville boasts more than just ponies and bourbon — though you'll find plenty of both if those strike your fancy. The city is home to a full-time opera, orchestra, ballet and regional and professional theaters. Couple those with the Mellwood Arts Center and the Fraizer International History Museum and you'll find that Kentucky's largest city provides a captivating mix of history, culture and modernity.

So don't miss out. Join Mensans from every generation as we descend upon Louisville July 1-5 for the 2015 Annual Gathering!
