RushCon: The Convention for Rush Fans
WHAT IS RUSHCON?RushCon 16: November 3-5, 2016, Toronto

RushCon is the largest North American gathering of fans celebrating the music of Canadian rock band, Rush.

Once a year, fans from all over the world gather for several days of activities such as games, a charity auction featuring rare and collectible band memorabilia, a tribute band concert, important guest speakers from inside the band's inner circle and much, much more!

RushCon is a by-the-fans, for-the-fans event where folks have an opportunity to raise money for an important charity whilst having an amazing time learning more about the band, getting to know each other and connecting with other fans from around the world. Over the past 15 years, RushCon members have formed life-long friendships and bonded over their fondness of this band.

It's a tremendously fun, informative and exciting series of events where fans are able to spend a weekend experiencing all the sites and sounds of Rush and simultaneously catch up with old friends who'll make you feel like you're not the only kid in the room who can recognize an odd time signature.

We heard your requests for more activities on Friday, so we have adjusted our scheduling slightly. We now have a more robust sightseeing tour of all the Rush landmarks on Friday, and have added the Charity Memorabilia Auction to Saturday. We hope you enjoy these great events! See our full schedule here.

This is a call-out for auction items for the 2016 RushCon Auction!
Given the VERY short timeframe to gather auction items and the even shorter timeframe to HOLD the auction, I am looking for the best of the best! Find that one EXTRA awesome Rush related item you think will bring in the Big Money for our auction! If you have something to donate, please contact Holly Smith, our auction coordinator, at:

Thank you so much for your donations! Please know that we appreciate you so very much and cannot have an auction without YOU!

RushCon 16 presents the Canadian premier screening party for the new documentary Rush: Time Stand Still

With no Rush tour in sight, the best thing on the horizon is this new documentary, screening as a part of RushCon at 7:30 on November 3rd, at Cineplex in Dundas Square, Toronto.

This two-hour film documents the R40 tour from the band's perspective, with behind-the-scenes footage, live performances and many fan interviews. RushCon is presenting the Canadian premier party, with the filmmakers in person for an after-show Q&A. RushCon attendees will end night at an exclusive VIP after-party. Movie ticket included in RushCon admission. Hope to see you there!

Hello Rush Fans! You didn’t SERIOUSLY think we would go a whole year without a con? We know summer is going fast (and the nights are growing colder), so we decided to throw RushCon 16 in the golden light of autumn.

We hope to see you all this November 3rd - 5th, 2016, In Toronto, Canada. (Yep, that’s Thursday through Saturday this time.) We have a huge, major event to announce, along with some fun new things! All details will be announced over the next couple weeks. But now would be a good time to ask for time off, get your Rush shirts out of the attic, and prepare to have the best weekend of your life this November. Stay tuned!

Happy New Year, Dear Rush fan friends! (Yeah, we know this is a little late…)

2015 was a good year in ways, sad in some ways, but overall another amazing spin around the sun!

We had 2 conventions, and as a loving community we saw the last Rush show of the R40 tour, and possibly forever. It was a moment we will never forget! Speaking of never forgetting, we have posted a recap of both our summer conventions here.

Back by popular demand, we have a very small batch of Star Men available for sale. These are hand made collectors items that were originally handed out at the last r40 show. They will sell out quick! Get them whilst they are temperate! We also have other goodies like Team Pennants, and RushCon Against Humanity for sale.


What does the future hold for RushCon 16? Gears are turning. Ideas are being born. And the State of the RushCon Union is Strong! Stay tuned. We will let you know as soon as we do!

We hope 2016 will be a beautiful new chapter in your lives and a promising newly turned page. We wish you peace, wisdom, health and love. A future of eternal light. And We hope to see you again real soon.

I'm young enough to remember the future, And the way things ought to be
