According to organizers, this year’s event has been moved to a drive-in and virtual concert.
“This year due to the unprecedented global pandemic of COVID-19, Tamil Fest will be moved to a Drive-in and Virtual format for everyone to enjoy world class entertainment. Popular Tamil Canadian singers and dancers will be engaged with great fan-fare for a two day concert,” state organizers on the event website.
“Attendees can choose to drive in to the venue or view the concert from the comfort of their home, which will be live streamed on both days on the Tamil Fest website, YouTube live and Facebook live.”
