Thy Sweet Love Remember'd is a Beauty and the Beast convention that was held in 2011 in New Orleans, LA.

From the convention flyer: "Each year, somewhere in the United States, fans from all over the world gather together to celebrate the continuing legacy of Beauty and the Beast. This year, our gathering will be in New Orleans, Louisiana. Our conventions have become more like a family reunion with your chosen family. If this will be your first convention, be prepared to be hugged a lot, because we will be so glad you have found your way home.

As our Tunnel Family gathers once again, we will share a segment of time that will live forever in our memories and in our hearts. We will share laughs galore, and a few tears. We will continue to honor our traditions such as our beautiful and moving candle lighting ceremony, art auction, costume party, talent show, banquet, Sunday morning brunch and our dealer room. You’ll enjoy several rounds of Beast Bingo, panels, play games, watch music videos, and cherish special moments. We will remember others less fortunate than ourselves with our charity auction."

The convention hosted an art auction, a vid show,a costume contest, a banquet dinner and many other activities. Portions of the convention were streamed live over the Internet and the convention also published a convention fanzine, Thy Sweet Love Remember'd (Beauty and the Beast zine).
