Edmonton is a great place to visit all year round, but if you’re a fan of sci-fi, fantasy, comics, anime or any number of nerdy interests then you owe it to yourself to visit Edmonton this September for the Edmonton Expo!


Taking place September 20 to 22, Edmonton Expo is one of Western Canada’s premier fan events! Come join hundreds upon hundreds of other fans celebrating their love of all things geek! Dress up as your favourite characters, catch exclusive trailer and screenings and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow enthusiasts.
Edmonton Expo always has incredible guests, and this year is no different!
  • Christopher Eccleston: The 9th Doctor himself! Hop into your Tardis and come meet Christopher Eccleston before time runs out!
  • George Takei: Oh myyy! While the role of Mr. Sulu made him famous, at this point George Takei is most well-know for being George Takei!
  • Felicia Day: This nerd-girl next door captured everyone’s hearts in web-series The Guild and has continued to be a part of beloved shows like Dr. Horrible’s Sing-along Blog and Mystery Science Theater: 3000!
  • Cary Elwes: Wesley from The Princess Bride! The Mayor from Stranger Things! That guy from Saw! Cary Elwes has been in so many things and we love him for it.
That’s just a select example from many, many more. Come here these guests speak, meet and greet them and even get your picture snapped with them in scheduled photo ops!

And that’s not to mention the costume competitions, hundreds of vendors and creators on the show floor and fun activities for you and all of your friends. Edmonton Expo is a great place to let your geek flag fly!

Planning your trip? Book a room at the Days Inn Edmonton South. We’re a short drive away from the Expo and offer all the comforts of home. Sore from wearing heavy armour as part of your costume all day? Relax in our complimentary hot tub and reflect on how much fun you had that day.
