The Halton Hills FanFest is an annual event that celebrates our love of fandoms. A fandom is a community of people who share a passion for a piece of media, be it a movie, television series, book series, video game, a band or a performer. With events like virtual reality, trivia, superhero storytime, crafts and cosplay, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
