The six year old festival features everything from athlete autograph sessions to silent films accompanied by a live pianist. This year, food trucks will be stationed at Yonge Dundas Square for hungry festival goers.

For the literary arts portion of the festival, Sylvester, Keri and Grainger will reading excerpts from their latest novels. The readings will take place at 4:30p.m. in Yonge Dundas Square. Kevin Sylvester will read on September 29, Jonah Keri on September 30 and James Grainger on October 1.

In addition to the free festivities at Yonge Dundas Square, Canada's Walk of Fame festival features a Massey Hall concert series and this year, has added a "rising star" music showcase at the legendary Horseshoe Tavern (both are ticketed events).
