This Weekend’s Events

There will be three record conventions this weekend, one of which will be in the city of Montreal and the remainder will occur in Toronto and the nearby community of Bowmanvillle.

The Foire Aux Vinyles Sur Le Plateau will be hosted at the Saint-Denis Catholic Church next to the Laurier Metro Station in Montreal from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, the 23rd of September 2023.

Admission will be $5 (or $15 for early entry at 9am). And as previously stipulated, it is on the doorstep of a Metro Station.

The Toronto-Mississauga Vinyl Record & Collectibles Show will be on the next day, on Sunday the 24th of September 2023, at the Etobicoke Olympium (590 Rathburn Rd, Etobicoke) from 10am to 3pm.

Admission will be $5 and the nearest bus stops,#1477 and #1493, face the venue. Consult the TTC for further details on public transit in the area.

The Bowmanville Record and CD Show will also be occurring that Sunday but from 10am to 4pm at the Memorial Park Clubhouse at 120 Liberty South in Bowmanville.

Admission is free and I believe the nearest bus stop with Sunday service may be a 8 minute walk away at the Lakeridge Health Center. Contact Durham Transit for details.

Now That Was Annoying!

I was unable to write anything on this blog because I had injured my right shoulder last week. But now i’m back with a few events:

The Burlington Record & CD Sale will occur this Sunday, the 13th, from 10am to 3pm at the Halton Naval Veterans Hall at 2444 Industrial St. in Burlington, Ontario.

The nearest bus stops are stop #204 at the corner of Gueph and Mountainside and stop # 207 at the corner of Guelph and Davidson. Admission is free with a donation to the hall.

Fanaticcon 4 will be occurring this Sunday, on the 13th, at the Ottawa Conference and Event Center at 200 Coventry Road. And this event will feature stars from Television of Film, as well as memorabilia from those genres and comic books.

This event will occur from 11am to 5pm and general admission is $15 with kids under 12 getting in for free. But you should note that VIP early admission tickets are available for $20. Click here for details.

Fan Expo Canada is a four day event that will occur at the Metro Toronto Convention Center that will feature celebrity appearances and merchandise from music, film and television.

Both the north and south buildings will have various vendors, displays and autograph sessions/meet & greet opportunities from the 24th to 27th of this month. And the nearest subway station is of course Union Station.

Admission prices vary depending of what experience you would like and additional details can be found by clicking here. But you might want to hurry and buy them by midnight tonight, eastern time, because they are discounted until then.

Enjoy. And if you’re over 50, be careful lifting cases of 24 water bottles!

This year’s show will be held on Sunday, the 23rd of July 2023 at the The Latcham Centre at 121 Queen Street from 10am to 3pm, on the shores of Lake Scugog, next to the Marina.

This event is pretty much the only record fair, show or convention that I know of that will occur in July, although the Woodstock Toy & Collectibles Expo on Sunday, July 16th will feature music memorabilia and collectibles.

That event will occur at the Woodstock Fairgrounds at 875 Nellis St, in the Oxford Auditorium and Mutual/Market Buildings, from 9:30am to 2:30pm.
