I think regional conferences are most valuable (Ex.: LinuxFest Northwest, Ohio LinuxFest)

I think more topic-specific conferences are most valuable (Ex.: DrupalCon, EclipseCon)

Conferences aren't really all that important

The headline asks about "favorite open source conferences", but just above the poll, it asks for "most important". Those might be mutually exclusive. Personally, I'd say the local ones are my favorite (Indiana LinuxFest and Ohio LinuxFest), but the national ones are probably more important.

During the past few years I've been to many of these conferences and the atmosphere and topics discussed were the best at KDE's conference Akademy and the more general FOSDEM conference. So these are the two I try to attend every year.
