MiniMerlin is a small relaxacon held in Philadelphia. While the focus is on Merlin/Arthur, other ships are welcomed.

From the 2010 FAQ:

"Minimerlin is a non ship specific con. Last year it ended up being predominantly Merlin/Arthur fans, but fans of all ships, hell, fans who aren't ship-specific, are equally welcome. The con is going to be rather informal, more of a get together and hanging out with fans, no real panels and only a few scheduled, and completely optional, activities (thus far: a vid show, episode watching, possible tour of historic Philadelphia)."
