CollectorFest is Calgary’s newest pop and geek culture event. Our second annual show is scheduled for Saturday, October 21, 2017 at the Chinese Cultural Centre. ​ After our successful inaugural show last year, CollectorFest is back for a one day event specializing in all things pop culture! Toys, Video Games, Movies, Collectibles, this show has something for everyone! There will be a variety of Vendors, Artists, Workshops, and Special Events available for you to check out! Some of the planned highlights for this year include: ​ CollectorFest Toy and Collectible Workshops ​ Have you ever wanted to learn how to build or paint your own custom toys and action figures? How about learning to make buttons and other wearable items to show off your love for your favorite TV show or comic book? We’ve got you covered! Come see our expert crafters and learn how to put your own personal twist on your collection! There are workshops available for all ages and skill levels. ​ Hot Wheels Race Track Play Area ​ Join us in our all ages, family friendly, Hot Wheels Race Track Play Area, where we will have a large variety of Hot Wheels toy cars and tracks for everyone to enjoy. There will be cars and tracks of all kinds to be played with and some prizes associated with this long lived and hugely popular toy line! ​ Pokémon Card Tournament ​ Pokémon: Calgary was so happy with their handheld video game tournament last year, that they asked us if they could host a card tournament at CollectorFest this year! Of course we are thrilled to accommodate such an event! There will be both a handheld Pokémon video game tournament, as well as a Pokémon card tournament, that will be run by the wonderful folks from Pokémon: Calgary and hosted on the second floor of the Chinese Cultural Centre during CollectorFest. Both tournaments will be all ages and will have prizes. ​ Retro Video Game Play Area and Mario Kart Tournament ​ Video Game Trader will once again be bringing a number of retro video game consoles for all attendees to try in their free play area. They will also be hosting an all ages friendly Mario Kart Tournament and Time Trial competition. There will be different iterations of the popular mascot racing game for everyone to participate and compete in, as well as a number of great prizes. This will take place in the main foyer of the Chinese Cultural Centre.
