If you are looking for Ontario Miniature Gaming Conventions, then you have come to the right place. During the pandemic, this page did not get much love. Now that things are opening up again where I live, I figured I would update it again.
Updated September 1, 2022
Welcome to the Ontario Miniature Gaming Conventions Page
I absolutely love wargaming conventions. Getting miniatures games out into the public’s eye is essential in my opinion to growing the hobby. To help encourage local gaming, we dedicate this page to list all of the upcoming miniature game conventions that we know of in Ontario (Canada). These conventions can focus mainly on Miniature Wargames, Board Games with Miniatures and even RPGs. My main concern is that your convention will feature miniatures games in some capacity.
This page is part of my attempt to help get the games we love out in front of new people.
If you have an upcoming event that you want listed here, please email us the details.
