3rd Annual MAY THE NORTH BE WITH YOU, 2024

Friday, August 2nd

To kick off the weekend, join us for a casual dinner at the hotel with the convention’s special guests. This is your chance to get an early look at exhibits, meet fellow collectors and chat with special guests before the main event. Dinner tickets required.

Saturday, August 3rd

The May The North Convention takes place on Saturday. The day features panel discussions with some of the key people who designed and developed the vintage Star Wars universe as well as other very extra special guests. This includes former employees of Kenner and Irwin Toy/Kenner Canada, experts in the Vintage Toy Collecting hobby, and more! More details and guests to be announced!

All our guests will also be available for autographs (extra costs apply) and pics.

Stay into the evening for a trivia competition, charity raffles and auction. We’ll have a cash bar and you’re welcome to bring any Star Wars stuff you want to sell or trade.

This year we’ve added Sponsor Level Tickets. For $175 cdn you will further help support MTNBWY as a non-profit event and receive some amazing Sponsor gifts. PLUS, you’ll receive Super Early Bird access to the Toy Show on Sunday!

Your Saturday convention ticket also includes Early Bird access to the MTNBWY Toy Show on Sunday! 

Sunday, August 4th

The MTNBWY Toy Show is open to the general public and will run from 10am-3pm with EarlyBird entry at 9:30 am at the Holiday Inn Burlington.  There will be over 70 vendor tables with the best vintage and modern Star Wars toys and collectibles. MTNBWY Saturday Convention tickets include Early Bird Entry for Sunday’s show.

All MTNBWY guests will also be available for autographs (extra costs apply).

Collector Archive Services (CAS) will be on-site and accepting in-person submissions for grading! Save the pain, risk and cost of shipping and drop off your items for grading at the show.
