Sailor Moon Celebration 2019
We first started as the Toronto Sailor Moon Celebration. Now we’re continuing our journey to incorporate even more girl power to meet the demands of fans in Toronto and Canada. We are the first girl power fandom convention in Canada.
If you enjoy narratives featuring strong female characters – you will find a positive, welcoming space at our events.
This event is focused on strong female characters and the characters who support them because every girl can be a hero.
Returning this year is one of our favourite original Sailor Scouts – none other than the “electrifying” Susan Roman.
