ABCCA   CANathon

The CANATHON is the official convention of the Australian Beer Can Collectors Association Inc. 
It is held in a different state/city each year with each Division of the ABCCA being allocated a  Canathon on a rotational basis.

The Canathon has been held in January each year since 1980 but from 2018 it will be held in May  to better accommodate conflict with the Holiday Season.

The venue for the Canathon is  on a rotational basis from state to state and is held in each State of Australia every 6 Years.

It provides members with an occasion to meet and  trade with interstate and overseas collectors, as well as enjoying various social events and  collecting fellowship.
Since 1981 the ABCCA has had much-valued sponsorship from some of Australia’s biggest Brewers and this is continuing to the present day.

Brewing companies have produced and filled a  special limited-edition Beer Can commemorating the Canathon and are highly regarded amongst ABCCA members.
