Democratic National Convention Will be Held Week of July 25, 2016
The 2016 Democratic National Convention will be held the week of July 25, the Democratic National Committee announced Friday.
The convention will take place the week after the Republican National Convention, set for July 18 to 21 in Cleveland. Democrats have not announced where the convention will be held—the committee is currently choosing among Columbus, Ohio, Philadelphia, or New York.
