Ad Astra is a not-for-profit, volunteer-run, weekend-long, science fiction, fantasy and horror event with a focus on authors and other creative professionals.
The weekend includes discussion panels and presentations on a variety of topics including writing, publishing, TV and movies, science and costuming, as well as many events including book signings, a meet and greet with our Guests, writing workshops, our Masquerade costume competition, book launches, a Saturday night dance, live music, and this year will feature The Tesla Tea Service, our charity event hosted by the Toronto Steampunk Society.
As well, enjoy Sunday Brunch with our Guests of Honour and Returning Guests of Honour – tickets sold separately, in advance, for reserved seating with one of the Guests.
In addition to our programming and events, Ad Astra also has a Vendors area, Art Show, Tabletop Gaming, Anime Room, Hospitality Suite, and a Cosplay Repair Lounge.
