FAQs

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Not necessarily. Once you complete the registration process, you will be sent an electronic ticket that can be scanned at the door via your smartphone. If you don't have a smartphone that you can use to access your tickets when you arrive, please print your tickets.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Revival is located at the corner of College Street and Shaw Ave (one block east of Ossington). By TTC: The College Streetcar West stops at Shaw. OR Take the Southbound bus from Ossington Station to College and walk one block east. There is parking in the lot behind the club and on adjacent side streets.

Who qualifies for a FREE Non-Walker ticket?

Our definition of "non-walker" is a reveler between 0-2 years old who spends most of the show in a caregivers' arms. Giving them a free ticket helps us anticipate the size and shape of our audience. Adult caregivers need to purchase their own tickets. If your child falls into this age range but you'd like your child to participate in the activities and crafts, please purchase a kid's ticket.

My child is 8 (or above), can s/he come to Totsapalooza?

The performances by our participating artists and authors appeal to kids of all ages. Importantly, though, the activities and crafts are designed for kids between 2-7.
