We’re back for our third annual show featuring dozens of pin and patch vendors from Toronto, across Canada, and around the world!
As always, general admission is free, and swag bags will be offered to the first 50 people in line. New to this year’s show, we’ll also be selling special VIP TICKETS that grants you early access to the show (no lineups!), along with some other fun perks.
Our venue, Toronto Media Arts Centre, is located at
32 Lisgar St, and is easily accessible by TTC.
Ossington Station: Take the 63 Bus south, get off at Queen Street and walk west towards Lisgar Street
501 Queen streetcar: Get off at Abell Street (just west of Dovercourt), then head south through Lisgar Park.
504 King streetcar: Get off at Sudbury Street, and then head north/west along Sudbury to Lisgar Street.
How can I apply?
Vendor applications for the 2019 show are now CLOSED! If you're interested in taking part in a future show, please be sure to follow us on Instagram for news about any upcoming vendor calls.
What do I get with a VIP ticket?
Early entry at 11am (one hour before doors open for general admission), two FREE pins (one from queenie's cards, and one from Sparkle Collective) and re-entry during the entirety of the show from 12pm-6pm. More details on pricing and to purchase tickets, please see our VIP ticket page!
I bought multiple VIP tickets, are they transferable?
As long as the ticket buyer is present with the individual ticket holders, you and your group will be allowed VIP entry. Tickets are non-transferable meaning there are no pass backs and are one-time use only per person.
How can I get a swag bag?
Swag bags will be given to the first 50 people in our general admission line. Click here for all the details on how to get a swag bag.
Does having a VIP ticket guarantee that I'll get a swag bag?
No, VIP entry and swag bags are two separate things. If you have a VIP ticket and would like a swag bag, you'll still need to be one of the first 50 people in the general admission line. Please view our swag bag info page for more details.
Is the venue accessible?
Yes, the Toronto Media Arts Centre is fully accessible. Click here to read more about how they strive to create a space that is accessible to everyone.
Will there be a wait time to get into the show?
While it’s impossible for us to predict attendee turnouts in advance of the show, we’ve opted for a much larger venue this year, which we hope will somewhat alleviate the long lineups that we’ve experienced in previous years.
What payment options will vendors be accepting?
This varies from vendor to vendor, and is based on their personal preference. We assume that all vendors will be accepting cash, while some will be also be accepting credit/debit payments.
