Fan Expo Canada 2019 – 25th Anniversary
by Nick Chan
Fan Expo Canada returned to the Metro Convention Centre once again on August 22-25, 2019. Whether you’re a Marvel superhero, Disney Character, or just love the Storm Troopers from Star Wars, fans of all ages and genres are welcome to this once a year event.
Within the two buildings of the convention hall, one can find endless things to do including a 10,000 sq. ft. family zone, a cosplay red carpet, Gaming Zones, Celebrity discussion panels, Autograph signings, visiting their favourite cosplayer booths and an artist alley with all their favourite sketchers and writers. These are just some of the activities guests can enjoy while here at Fan Expo Canada.
This year, as the past years, Fan Expo Canada did not disappoint and packed the Celebrity Guest line-up with John Travolta (Grease, Pulp Fiction, The Fanatic), Brendan Fraser (The Mummy, Encino Man), Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park), Zachary Levi (Shazam!), Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who), Mia Farrow (Rosemary’s Baby), Steven Seagal (Under Siege, Above the Law), The cast of Kim’s Convenience, Smallville, Save By the Bell and many more.
This all-ages pop culture convention hosted well over 130,000+ fans in the 750,000 sq. ft. space on all of this four-day event. We enjoyed seeing fans from all over the world attend this event in their own costumes, the endless artwork from artist alley and the enjoyment of fans seeing their favourite celebrities.
We look forward to next year!
