When I think of events that celebrate comic books and the art that they represent I automatically think of adults dressed as Spiderman, Captain America or some obscure Anime character so when I discovered Toronto’s Comic Arts Festival I assumed it would be more of the same.
I was wrong! The free festival promotes the breadth and diversity of the comic genre and intends to bring the wider public in to that world. Thousands attend every year and festival venues include museums, libraries and theatres in the Annex. TCF is celebrating it’s 10th anniversary – check out its website for more details.
Also this weekend is “Discover Hidden Toronto” a scavenger hunt for adults held by Urban Capers that takes participants around downtown Toronto hitting venues like the ROM and University of Toronto. The hunt is historically focussed and question and answer based. It will be on Saturday May 11 only and takes two hours. Tickets are $30 per person and typical teams are two to six people.
