Canada's second largest convention of its genre outside of Toronto! This show began to grow in 1994 as a simple weekend tradeshow called the Manitoba Collector's Expo. Back in 1994 we did everything from sportscards to antiques to toys and comic books. As times changed, so did the event, and in 2000 it became the Manitoba Toy & Comic Expo, dropping the antiques and reducing the sportscards.

Utilikilts Company
Utilikilts Company

The Utilikilts Company, established April 2000, was originally founded in order to fund a global arts project, involving seven double deck busses that would travel the world, putting on an interactive road show of music, dance, video art, and drama, and leaving change in its wake.

The Utilikilt was one of several designs implemented by Form Follows Function, an original design company, in order to raise money for this Arts project. However, the Utilikilt soon spawned the Utilikilts Company, and right before our eyes, this unique garment began to accomplish the goals that FFF had originally set out to promote, by becoming a growing social phenomenon, inspiring debate, consistently challenging the media, changing lives, and creating a common symbolism among its wearers.
