National Herpes Events - Amazing People In One Place
National Events are held throughout the country and Canada! 100’s of people fly from all over to attend a single event. These events are a great way to get out, have fun and meet others in the same boat! They are also a great way to meet other HWerks members! Yes, everybody there will have herpes and/or HPV!
Typically, a National Event is 3 days (Thursday, Friday and Saturday) at a hotel and has an event fee that includes some food, snacks, beverages…etc. These events are not run by HWerks but rather by a dedicated team of volunteers.
The hotel does NOT know what the group is about for the privacy of the group. It is also expected to stay that way. They just see a great group of people there to have fun for the weekend.
As soon as the event websites are available, they will be posted here. Each event is different so please visit the event website for more details. Be sure to book your room early as room blocks can sell out quickly
Warning: If you go to one event, you will be hooked!

We Keep National Herpes Events On the Down Low
We only provide event information via our Newsletter. For the privacy of the event and those in attendance, we do not post event details here, publicly. The last thing people want is people showing up to the hotel and proclaiming, “We’re here for the Herpes National Event!” To our knowledge, this has never happened and events are a great experience. Everyone should attend at least one.

We only list the National Herpes Events that are publicly accessible. In other words, they must have some type of web presence for contact and event information.

National Event FAQ's
Going to a National Event or even a local event for the first time can be stressful and leave you full of questions. Hopefully, we can answer them and make you feel more at ease!
Q. Why should I go to a National Event?
Events are a great way to meet people and make friends from all over…and they are fun! Events are held at a hotel and many people go for a mini-vacation. There are activities planned day and night and usually last 3 days. You just have to show up!
Q. Do other people know why we are there?
No. It is also expected to stay that way. When booking the rooms, the block will be under something like a “Gardening club” or anything else unrelated to herpes. As a matter of fact, the word is rarely mentioned all weekend. The event provides wristbands so everyone in the group knows why you are there but nobody else will.
Q. Are events one big “Hook up” or one big sex party?
LOL, this question probably gets asked the most and couldn’t be further from the truth. The answer is NO. Guests of an event are expected to be on their best behavior. For many, this will first time that they are around so many people with herpes. Others go to see friends and use an event as an opportunity to meet people they know from online.
Q. How much does an event cost?
This varies by the event. It is usually between $60-$80 for the event fee plus hotel and flight if you don’t live close. Most National Events include a banquet, maybe some lunches, meeting room, activities or a DJ. Each event is different so visit the event website for details.
Q. Who organizes these events?
Events are not run by HWerks. They are run by awesome volunteers! They put in long hours for months to plan. They do all the hard work to make sure everyone has fun. If you find yourself at an event, make sure to thank the organizers. They deserve it!
Q. Is there alcohol? Will I feel out of place if I do not drink?
Alcohol is present and some activities include going to a bar or restaurant that serves it. Everyone at an event is an adult and this is a vacation for many. If you don’t drink and are OK being around others drinking, you are good! You will still have a great time!
Q. I am nervous! I don’t know anyone there! Will I feel odd?
We can’t tell you how many people were nervous and scared to go to an event! They then quickly realized there is nothing to be nervous about! Unlike walking into a huge crowd of strangers, you are in the club! People are very friendly and will introduce themselves. Still unsure? Visit the forums inside and make friends before an event or ask questions!
