2023 RGM&HS Convention

convention logoMark your calendars for our 2023 convention which will be in Denver, Colorado on August 27-30, 2023, and will run sequentially with the 2023 National Narrow Gauge convention which will run August 30th – September 02, 2023. Our 2023 RGM&HS Convention will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Denver – Aurora, which is short distance from the hotel hosting the National Narrow Gauge convention (NNGC). So it's the perfect opportunity to take in both events while in Denver.

Our convention has a great line-up of 10 programs that will include color photography and explanations of Rio Grande Standard and Narrow gauge operations.   The programs  will cover both freight and passenger operations on the D&RGW system. Click on the Learn More button below for the full list of programs, other convention events being planned. Please check back here on for more updates as we get closer to the event.

Our convention fee is $95. We also have a special convention rate for rooms (standard king or two queen bed rooms) at the DoubleTree for just $119 a night.
