Fan Expo Canada hits the scene this weekend August 25-28.  Big-Bang-Theory-watching, Star-Wars-costume-bearing fans, get your “nerd on” and unite.  The Metro Convention Centre will turn into a playground for gamers, comic book collectors and anyone interested in anime, horror and sci-fi.   Plus for the first time, Fan Expo brings Speed Dating, free to attendees but looks like spots are booked up… unless a cling-on gets cold feet, perhaps?

  • BuskerFest, Toronto’s international street performer festival will swarm the St Lawrence Market Neighbourhood August 25-28, in support of Epilepsy Toronto.  You will be able to catch anything from daredevils and magicians, slapstick comedy, circus acts, acrobats, contortionists and maybe even a BuskerFest marriage proposal (a first last year).  The big benefit shows are The Fire Show which takes place Friday at 9:30pm and The Grand Finale on Sunday at 6:30pm.

Continuing this week:

  • Heads Up:  Tickets have started selling for the Toronto Underground Market (TUM).  Get a taste of this deliciously brilliant concept that will be making its way to the city.  You can purchase your tickets online here and sample the food of Toronto’s home cooks. 

Any comments or events to add? Please feel free to post them in the section below.  Enjoy your last week of August!
