Event Overview

The Canadian Videogame Awards are pleased to announce the addition of CVA FanFest, a weekend celebration of video games. As the CVA’s continue to grow and build towards the 2017 celebrations in Ottawa, fan engagement has never been more important.

Fans will have the opportunity to try out games that will be released prior to the holiday season and meet their creators in the new Fan Zone and Canadian Game Zone. The Canadian Game Zone will host some of Canada’s best talent and showcase a range of developers from across the country.

The event will round out with local bands and other entertainment featured on the main stage prior to the award show on Sunday December 6th, closing out a weekend celebration of the Canadian Gaming Industry. The objective of CVA FanFest is to celebrate Canadian gaming and provide a great opportunity for fans to meet their favourite Canadian developers.
