There is no advance performance schedule for the festival, rather spontaneity is the order of the day. You just never know when and where someone is likely to pop-up! But, rest assured, all the performers conduct numerous shows throughout the weekend, so you’ll have a lot of opportunities to catch your favourite acts.
What many spectators don’t realize is that this world class festival not only supports a local charitable organization, Epilepsy Toronto, it is actually organized and run by them as their largest fund raiser of the year, with the support of amazing sponsors such as Scotiabank, and partners like the Downtown Yonge Street BIA (Business Improvement Area). “One in every 100 Canadians experiences some form of epilepsy and this amazing festival is the single-largest fundraiser for Epilepsy Toronto.”
