Due to an overwhelmingly high demand, the biggest free toy event of last year returns, and there's only one toy store that could pull it off! The Super Happy Toy Show, Art Market and Easter Weekend Party will be an event that was only hinted at during our last Halloween show. This time, the show will be an entire weekend, that's two full days for double the fun and double the excitement!

Returning to the famous Saint Arnold Brewery on Easter weekend, April 11th and 12th, this all-ages event will showcase some of the best toy vendors and the most talented artisans with many opportunities to purchase from both. Taps will be flowing as well, so enjoy your favorite Saint Arnold's beverage while you shop. Plus, expect many more surprises to be announced as the event draws nearer.

Attention all toymakers and modelers! Comicpalooza CP365 will be cohosting a special Toy & Model Contest at the Saint Arnold Investors Pub. Enter your family-friendly creations and let the fans decide who is the best-of-the-best. Anyone interested must apply by the deadline (Sunday, April 5th) and display their entries at this event. Applicants are permitted a maximum of two entries, one in each category (max: 50 total entries per category). Voting will be open to the public—limit one vote per category, per person. A voting link, accessible from any device with internet, will be available onsite. Winners will receive badges to Comicpalooza and assorted prizes from both Saint Arnold and Super Happy Incredible Toys. Refer to the prize pool below for more details.

Toy & Model Contest Categories:

  • Toy - An object that assigns authorship as its main use. These objects are intended to be played with and allow the user to freely handle them. The user creates their own experience through interacting with the object. These objects are often customized from pre-existing action figures or other such replicas.
  • Model - An object that assigns authenticity as its main use. These objects are intended to be displayed and allow the user to showcase their attention to detail. The user emulates the experience of a person or place or thing, and typically on a smaller scale than the original object itself. These objects are often preplanned and built from scratch or constructed using assembly kits.
