What is Fan Expo?
Fan Expo is the place to be if you’re a fan of anything pop culture. Whether you love movies, cosplay, books, comics or toys Fan Expo is the event for you! There are vendors with everything your geeky little heart could desire. The artists alley is to die for. And there’s celebrities! Are you a Star Trek fan? George Takei will be there. How about Star Wars? Then you better go say hi to Billy Dee Williams. Princess Bride? Cary Elwes and Wallace Shawn will sign your DVD. Love Gotham? David Mazouz and Sean Pertwee will be there. And if you ever grew up watching Baywatch, you’d better get a pass to come say hi to Pamela Anderson. This is our seventh year vending at the Fan Expo. It’s one of our favourite events to do and we are so excited to come back in 2019.

Should you go?
Fan Expo is for you if you belong to pretty much any fandom. I guarantee that you’ll meet someone who shares your passion. Have you ever wanted to make a cosplay? Fan Expo is a great place to try it out. You get to be inspired by people who have been cosplaying for years and share the joy of your fandom with people you are just starting out. You’ll probably pick up some tricks of the trade while you’re there. If you don’t want to dress up that’s cool too! You’ll see lots of people in casual attire just enjoying the atmosphere. You should come check it out!
