Mark your calendars... YouTube FanFest is coming to Canada!
On Saturday, May 2nd, some of the biggest Canadian and international YouTube stars will take over Dundas Square in Toronto… for the first time ever! You’ll get the opportunity to meet some of your favourite internet heroes in person, including superstars like Jenna Marbles, Bethany Mota and Toronto’s very own Lilly Singh, a.k.a. IISuperwomanII.
Hosted by Montreal-based food crew Harley Morenstein and Epic Meal Time, YouTube FanFest is free and features a mashup of music, comedy, fashion, education, and beauty all together on one stage. This wildly popular event is a first for North America - previous FanFests have been held in India, Singapore, Thailand, Korea, Australia and Japan.

You’ll want to get there early to see your favourite YouTube creators answer questions on the Red Carpet starting at 5:00 p.m. ET. We 'press play' on the main event at 8 p.m. ET.
