Victoria‘s Ultimate Hobby and Toy Fair is finally back! After nearly two long years of being on hiatus because of the pandemic, this event now has the go-ahead to resume. The organisers are recommending that people still wear masks because of the concentrated space, but otherwise those who opt not to won’t be turned away.
This event is run by the staff of Cherry Bomb toys is a mini festival of all things pop culture one could buy or admire. Local clubs (VicLUG will be in attendance and unconfirmed is the 501st Legion), vendors and private sellers are rotating each day. Whether people are visiting to browse or pick up something for their collection, it’s a show many locals are anxious to see. Some folks even like attending while in cosplay!
Whether that’s with a video game, toy product or comic book, there’s also old books, vinyl records and used movies.
Victoria’s Ultimate Hobby and Toy Fair has a silent auction and all proceeds will go to the BC Children’s Hospital and the MS Society of Canada. It’s uncertain if they’ll have carnival type games running in the back. Cherry Bomb Toys plans to have everything that defines this event back. If it can’t be located this year, then the next one, planned for October, might have it.
