We hope to see you at Consonance 2023! Our new weekend runs from Friday, March 31 through Sunday, April 2. We are again holding Consonance at the Sonesta San Jose, which is actually in Milpitas at 777 Bellew Drive. We have been at this hotel since 2013, although prior to 2021 it operated under a different name.

We care about your health and the health of your friends. Therefore, you must be vaccinated to attend, and we ask you to remain masked except when you are eating or performing. Please show proof of vaccination to our friendly registration staff when you arrive.

We’ve got amazing guests and an amazing, dedicated concom. See you the end of March!

Webmaster note: The good people of Sonesta San Jose have their own Stay Safe policies and practices also. Be good to the staff :D
