Just over one month from now, Canada’s largest convention of pop/nerd culture will be returning to the city of Toronto, with a star-studded celebrity guest list, and attractions every member of the family will be sure to enjoy. (We’re a little bit excited. Obviously. Conventions are like home for us nerds.) Read on to find out all you need to know about this event – meanwhile, we’ll be counting down the
When: Thursday August 31 – Sunday September 3, 2017. Four jam-packed days of everything nerdy you can imagine.
Who’s going? The guest list for this year’s con is already huge, and continuing to grow. Celebrity guests include the cast of The Rocky Horror Picture Show (Tim Curry, Patricia Quinn, and Nell Campbell); Doctor Who stars Matt Smith, Catherine Tate, Billie Piper, Karen Gillan, and John Barrowman; Stranger Things trio Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, and Caleb McLaughlin; fan favourites Nathan Fillion, Stephen Amell, and Felicia Day… the list goes on. Check out the full guest list here.
What we’re most excited for… Is “EVERYTHING!” an appropriate answer? Because that’s ours. There’s so much to do and see, from panels/Q&A’s, to the Artist Alley (a.k.a. a nerd’s dream shopping experience), from Cosplay Masquerades to film screenings, as well as autograph sessions or photos with your favourite celebrity/cosplayer/artist.
