End of summer blues got you down? This free festival will give you something to smile about. As part of the Just For Laughs comedy festival this September, a free event featuring standup comedy, live music, and food trucks is coming to downtown Toronto.

Described as “totally accessible, totally free [and] totally hilarious,” the Just For Laughs street festival will feature DJs and bands, as well as local and international comedians.

All of the action will take place on the Beneva Stage located at Front Street East and Berczy Park.

The street fest will span 100,000 square feet and will be fully licensed, so you can sip the day away while you soak up the good vibes.

Enjoy a stacked lineup of performers and then grab a bite to eat at the Food Truck Alley or any of the surrounding restaurants in the bustling Entertainment District.

As for the Just For Laughs festival itself, Toronto will be treated to shows from some of comedy’s biggest stars, and the headliners are pretty impressive this year.

Fans of The Office will get to enjoy an in-person show by Angela and Pam, along with other major headliners like Andrew Schulz, Jonathan Van Ness, Ronny Chieng, Nicole Byer, Leslie Jones, Sam Morril, Giggly Squad, and Marlon Wayans.

You can buy individual tickets for Headliner shows or go all-out with a Headliner Pass that also gives you credits to shows in other categories.
