This thread is a list of upcoming conventions in Canada in one handy place! This list follows all genres of cons (sci-fi, anime, comic, etc) so long as they are costume friendly. Because hey, this is cosplay.com. We're all about the cosplay! If there is anything missing please just give me the convention's website and a discussion thread and I will have it added to the list.

For a list of upcoming casual cosplay events see here: [url]http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=252568[/url]

Conventions are listed in order by date and separated by province (which is listed in ordered of west to east)

LAST UPDATE: December 23, 2012

I'm very sorry for the lack of upkeep on this list this year. Over the next week I will try to compile the list again. In the meantime, if you have an event you want to share simply reply to the thread!

I haven't heard of... well most of these cons.... Is it possible to post some info (other than websites) about what is at these cons and what is it like for the first time attender?

#7 Mekou on 7 years ago

That's what their websites are for. :) All the info you need to know about a con will be at their websites or even through the first few posts of a discussion thread.

I think adding too much info would just make the list cluttered. I'm sure a few clicks will get people to the info they need.

Oh I heard that's an exciting thing to happen (coming to Toronto) and certainly one I'd like to know about! Thank you! I wish I had more experience making elaborate cosplays for that one! (I'd consider myself still a beginner)

The thing about the websites is yes that it has a lot of information but doesn't answer everything such as atmosphere, what to do and what to see and if it is worth said amount, etc. If that makes any sense at all. :p
