It’s difficult to remember a time before superhero movies drew blockbuster-sized crowds and mayors cosplayed as time-travelling doctors in epic downtown parades, but when Calgary Expo’s organizers set out out to create a fan convention in Calgary in 2006, the world just starting to let out their inner nerd. Calgary Expo was created by a few locals with a love for pop culture who wanted to see a uniquely western Canadian event in their hometown after experiencing awesome conventions in other major North American cities. The first Calgary Expo took place May 7, 2006 and attracted just 3,400 attendees. Read more about Calgary Expo’s origins on our HISTORY page.
