Another major musical event includes Hip Hop sensation Maestro Fresh Wes and Friends with special guest appearances by K-OS, Kardinal Offishall, Classified, and Shad, Divine Brown, The Trews, and Rascalz.

In addition to the much buzzed-about music, free screenings will take place throughout Canada’s Walk of Fame in Toronto. Take advantage of this opportunity to catch your favorite flicks on the big screen, from recent Academy Award-winning “Argo” to throwbacks including “The Blues Brothers,” “Back to the Future,” and “Star Trek II- Wrath of Khan.”
