Approximately 70 Jericho fans met in Oakley on September 14–16, 2007 for the first Jericho convention, called Jerichon 2007. A second Jerichon was held Memorial Day weekend 2008, though fewer fans attended, set designer Mike Loomer made an appearance. A third Jerichon was discussed but never happened.
