The Northern National Collectors’ Convention (Northern National) will take place inside the Augustus Tower at Caesars Windsor, September 29-October 1, 2023, in tandem with the Windsor Fan Experience (WFX). The inaugural show will be billed as Northern National presents Windsor Fan Experience.
The Northern National will have all the accents of a traditional card expo but will more importantly enable the Trading Card Game (TCG) community (inclusive of brands ranging from Pokémon, Magic: The Gathering, Digimon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Disney Lorcana, and Dragon Ball Z) to have a national presence in Canada. Inclusive of WFX, it will be a hybrid convention that has all the trimmings of a pop culture event with celebrities, athletes, and much more.
The show is led by local Windsorite and lifelong Riverside resident, Jeremy Renaud, collaborating with an amazing organizing committee who have worked together on events across Canada and the US.
Renaud launched the inaugural Northern National in his hometown of Windsor, Ontario as a silent nod to the birthplace where his passion for both collecting and the industry started.
Though the inaugural Northern National will take place in Windsor, Ontario, the show will be moved to the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) in 2024 with the potential opportunity to setup on a quadrennial rotational cycle to other markets across Canada. The Windsor Fan Experience will then remain in the local area as a legacy of the Northern National in the community where it was launched.
