Bit Bazaar

Bit Bazaar unites indie games, comics and good eats

Bit Bazaar is returning to Toronto just in time for your holiday shopping. Ever wished you could cross names off your gift list and play video games at the same time? This might be the closest you'll get beyond surfing Amazon while thumbing around in Grand Theft Auto. Then again from the looks of Bit Bazaar's vendor list of over 30 exhibitors hustling comics, zines, games, clothing, posters, mixtapes, toys and grub, it might be hard for the nerdy-at-heart (aren't we all) not to spoil themselves.

The zine-fair meets arcade took over Bento Miso last spring, and this edition will be much of the same - though the vendor list has swelled considerably. Presented in part by TCAF, Bit Bazaar unites indie games and arcades, comic and zine artists, photographers, and chefs - oh yes, friends, there will be pie, and pot pie (and cider - oh my). If the promise of DIY culture, delicious munchables, and the free admission isn't enough, head over to their website to check out the list of games, vendors, and etcetera. All in all, this might be the coolest holiday craft event of the season (and the competition is stiff). Be there or be square.

Bit Bizaar takes over Bento Miso (862 Richmond St W) on Friday, December 6, at 7pm for their opening party (RSVP) then the main event is Saturday, December 7, from 11am - 7pm (admission is free).
