The Biannual Jellyfish Convention is a convention for jellyfishers. It is located in a huge stadium and it has big turnouts. There are many different activities located there, such as talk with Kevin C. Cucumber, meet Jeffrey the Jellyfish, listen to Dr. Manowar discuss his encounter with Big Lenny, and interact with many things.

SpongeBob and Patrick first visit the convention in the episode "I'm Your Biggest Fanatic." It later appears in the book Tales From Bikini Bottom and the PC version of the video game Lights, Camera, Pants!

The layout of the Biannual jellyfish Convention is of a fairly organized and structured convention, similar to a Comic-Con convention. The exterior of the stadium has been set up well. There is a huge sign in a red capitalized text displaying "Welcome Jellyfishers." There are many entrances to the inside and there are many boats surrounding the convention, hinting that there is a huge parking lot and that the convention is popular.

Around the area of the stadium are Jellyfish-shaped balloons. Inside the stadium, it is neat and of a great standard. There are many tables with different things on them such as jellyfish in jars and pictures of them. The theme of the layout is Jellyfish, as there are banners, balloons, and signs all to do with Jellyfish. There is also a Jellyfish Harpoon from Jellyfish: The Movie. There are also stages where people talk to thereof the crowd. A security guard is also stationed in the convention, who is tasked to forbid anyone from touching the most important items but Patrick keeps touching them, forcing the guard to follow him.

SpongeBob buys his purple Jellyfish hat at the convention, too.

SpongeBob and Patrick are shown here at the beginning of the episode. SpongeBob in particular eagerly demands Kevin's attention and requests to join the Jellyspotters, while Patrick is touching things he is prohibited from by the security guard.

At the end, Patrick has made off with Jeffrey the Jellyfish while telling him that hero worship is unhealthy.
