How to celebrate Star Wars Day 2016 in Toronto

May 4 is Star Wars Day and no matter whether you're more a fan of Vader, Rey, Chewie or Jar Jar Binks there's an event with your name on it. Get ready to mark the occasion this year with costume parties, movie screenings, trivia contest or an improv show.

Here's a round-up of events for Star Wars Day 2016 in Toronto.

Star Wars Trivia
Think you know your bounty hunters, droids and jedi better than your Toronto brethren? Prove your Star Wars mettle at Scallywags pub near Yonge and St. Clair for a chance to win prizes. Join as a team of five or an individual. Costumes optional but encouraged.

Star Wars Day at Hard Rock Cafe
Make sure to dress as your favourite Star Wars character before heading to this tourist trap at Yonge Dundas Square. Expect Star Wars themed food and drink specials, a costume contest, group photo, trivia and more.

May The 4th Be With You Party
The Junction's favourite new sci-fi themed cafe will be serving Star Wars themed drinks, running a trivia contest and screening episodes 4,5 and 6. Costumes encouraged.

Whose Force is it Anway?
Looking for a laugh on Star Wars day? Head to the Comedy Bar on Bloor for the ultimate Star Wars improv show "Whose Force is it Anyway?" It's the retelling of the original Star Wars: A New Hope using short form improv games. Tickets will set you back $15.
