All New Family Zone Touches Down at FAN EXPO Canada
Catch the Snitch, battle the knight, and build a LEGO world at FAN EXPO Canada's expanded Family Zone!
TORONTO, ON (July 30, 2019) – New this year, FAN EXPO Canada is bringing a world of discovery and adventure to fans of all ages with a 10,000 sq. ft. Family Zone; complete with dance parties, robots, LEGO, crafts and more! Young fans and fans who are young at heart can cap off summer by having a blast at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from August 22-25, 2019 – a week earlier than in years passed.
Fresh off its debut at Toronto Comicon, the Family Zone is touching down at FAN EXPO Canada for the first time this year with nonstop programming that the whole family can experience. Over the course of the four-day show, young wizards will have a chance to find their houses in a Sorting Hat Ceremony; try their hand at the not-so-fictional game of Quidditch; learn about Robots with The Cube School of Technology; become a master builder at the immersive LEGOLAND Discovery Centre; draw outside of the lines at The Tiny Colourless Café; and so much more.
Fans can leave their broomsticks at home and save on the cost of admission when they ride the GO with FAN EXPO Combo Tickets. Plus, children (12 & under) ride GO Transit for FREE! In addition, August 22 will be Transit Thursday at FAN EXPO; guests can show their PRESTO Card at the Box Office on that day and get in for $20/adult, $15/youth & $45/family. Valid on Thursday, August 22 only.
Single Day Child and Youth Passes and All Access Family Passes, valid for two adults and up to four children are available now at fanexpocanada.com/tickets.
