Ad Astra Postponed until 2021

Toronto’s Longest Running Fan Run Science Fiction and Literary Convention. Please see the Announcement below for details.


Ad Astra and the COVID-19 Situation

To all Ad Astra members and staff,With the growing concern over the COVID-19 situation, along with the Ontario Government’s order halting events with 50 people or more attendees, it is with a heavy heart that I must announce that this year’s Ad Astra will be postponed until 2021.

For anyone with questions about Hotel booking rooms please contact us here


*Separate Paid events at Ad Astra are not included

The weekend features discussion panels and presentations on a variety of topics including writing, publishing, TV and movies, science and costuming, as well as events including book signings, a meet and greet with our Guests, writing workshops, our Masquerade costume competition, book launches, a Saturday night dance, live music, and The Tesla Tea Service, our charity event hosted by the Toronto Steampunk Society, and many more.


For those wondering about their hotel reservations for the now-postponed (and to be much missed) Ad AStra 2020, each individual will have to cancel their own reservation; the convention can not do that nor can the hotel do it in a block manner. Much as we all had to book separately, we also need to cancel separately. Be sure not to exceed the cancellation times provided by the hotel when you reserved.

If you have any trouble with that process, please let us know and we’ll try to help.
