Join us on the evening of Saturday, July 1st., 2006
Canada Day

Toronto Island ParkBring your family and costumes for a themed outdoor picnic, at the beautiful lakeside setting of the Toronto Island Park, just a short ferry ride across the harbour from downtown Toronto. This idyllic natural setting stands in sharp contrast to the hustle and bustle of the city only minutes away, and has been the ideal escape for Torontonians of all generations for decades. The Gathering of the Fellowship will transform a portion of the Island Park into a piece of Middle-earth. Mithrandir himself will be the featured guest, as he concludes the celebration with a display of Canada Day fireworks!

  • Mithrandir's FireworksA fully catered and themed outdoor BBQ picnic, with Medieval-style food
  • Costumes encouraged but not necessary
  • Games and contests for children and adults alike
  • A Costume contest
  • Medieval battle demonstration
  • Acoustic musical performances throughout the picnic
  • A fireworks display to cap the evening, by Mithrandir himself
This will be the perfect event to enjoy the outdoors during the convention—a nice break from the hotel, and a chance to step fully into your Middle-earth character. If you have children, this will also be an ideal activity, and it promises to be a highlight of the Gathering.
What a way to end your first day!
