Major global tech festival taking over King West next week

Sep 19 2019, 2:09 pm

Canada’s leading tech and innovation festival, Elevate, is dropping into Toronto next week. And with it comes a whole host of events that you won’t want to miss.

From a conversation with Michelle Obama to special opportunities running along King Street West, there’s a lot of going on in the city from September 20 to 26.

Besides Festival Stages and Tech Jam, Elevate’s King West activities will be the place to catch the action on select evening after the daytime events.

Elevate King West spans two nights of activations, pop-ups, partnerships, and game-changing innovation, exploring where art, fashion, wellness, culinary arts, and entertainment collide.

Covering two nights from 4 pm to 4 am and including over 30 venues across a three-block stretch between Spadina and Bathurst, the series is inspired by the vibrancy of the world’s best multi-disciplinary tech fests. Trust that whether you’re looking to wind up or cool down, there’s something happening that’s meant for you.

Think Extended Aperitivo Hour at Bar Buca, an Alleyway Party at Pizzeria Libretto, a Wellness Zone at stackt market, AND a Bourbon & Rock ‘n’ Roll event at Weslodge. Raptors’ Serge Ibaka will also be hosting an event at Love Child, and Akon is holding a private party at HP Lit.
