Bit Bazaar is a videogame arts & crafts market + zine fair that happens a few times a year here in Toronto.

This winter, 40+ Canadian indies show off their games & wares alongside the big studios on a national stage, as part of FanFest during the annual Canadian Videogame Awards.

Play minty-fresh games! Buy one-of-a-kind, limited-edition and handmade/DIY items—pins, zines, boxed videogames, card decks, art prints, comics, t-shirts, game soundtracks on vinyl, mixtapes, papercraft and toys—direct from indie game and comics makers!
