Sponsored by Beddows Philatelics, this one-day dealer bourse show will be philatelic and postal history focused. Hours are from 9am – 5pm. The bourse will be located in the upstairs room of the Gananoque Legion. Free parking will be available in the Legion parking lot off of Pine Street to the south of the building, which provides same-level access (no stairs) to the bourse floor.

The show will be fully compliant with the municipal and provincial health restrictions in place at that time (including attendance records to enable contact tracing). Please pay attention to this listing in CSN for updated show status should health conditions and provincial restrictions change.

There will be coffee, water and doughnuts on site and Gananoque features a number of excellent restaurants with patios in easy walking distance of the Legion once you’ve satisfied your philatelic appetites! Located in the heart of the 100 Islands, Gananoque is less than three hours from both Toronto and Montreal via Hwy 401; 1.5 hours from Ottawa; and less than two hours from Syracuse, N.Y.

A summer tourist destination, Gananoque is home to the Gananoque Boat Line offering tours on the St Lawrence with visits to Boldt Castle, the Thousand Islands Playhouse (which offers a full season of plays), lovely B&B’s as well as the classic Gananoque Hotel on the waterfront, unique B&B’s and a pleasant municipal beach with splash pad. It has a century nine-hole course built in 1921 at the Gananoque West Gate on Hwy 2, along with a second nine-hole course just north of town on Hwy 32, and much more.

The variety of summer activities makes this the rarest of things; a stamp show in a location that is perfect for a family day trip or weekend getaway for families!

The show is going forward.  Please note the following conditions:  all attendees will be required to sign an attendance register and masking while indoors will be mandatory for all participants.  There is scope to accommodate up to 50 persons at a time as I have made arrangements for a second room if required (25 per room).  If we use both rooms, collectors will be able to move between rooms to visit all dealers but no room will be allowed to exceed 25 persons at a time.  There are branches of the Toronto Dominon Bank and the Bank of Montreal at the corner of King Street and Stone Street, less than 150 m from the Legion.  There won’t be food on site, but there are some very good restaurants inside the same 150 m circle of the site with patios and a variety of menu options.  See below for thumbnail map with directions to parking and the site.  We look forward to seeing you this Saturday!
