The 2015 Govfest charity event will feature more than 30 bands, several stages on Queen Street in downtown Toronto, and a Grand Finale event at the CBC Glenn Gould Studio. The Govfest events will involve over 150 musicians and dozens of volunteers from the Ontario Public Service who come together to show off their musical talent. The Battle nights draw close to 1,200 people over 5 nights. They come from the Greater Toronto area and as far as London and Kingston. Proceeds from the event support two organizations: The United Way of Greater Toronto and the Ryan’s Well Foundation. Over the past 8 years, the Govfest Battle of the Bands has raised over $100,000 for our beneficiaries. The event’s strong reputation for overall quality is evidenced by the crowd who return year after year, and the continued success of the event. Join us for a great charity event.
