For eleven days in September, Toronto welcomes some of the biggest and best international films and celebrities, and all it takes to enjoy this massive event is a single ticket.

For a few days in June every year, Sled Island festival hits Calgary and the downtown is taken over by bands and concerts. The festival was created in 2007 by Calgary native, and at the time the owner of music venue Broken City, Zak Pashak.
