About the Gala

All That Sparkles

Each year, the celebrations typically begin in the afternoon. First, there's the Star's procession to Metro Square followed by an official ceremony and the unveiling of the "sidewalk stars" on Simcoe Street. After that, the Tribute Gala takes centre stage. It's always a glittering event, consisting of dinner, the awards show, and the after-party. All in all, it's a spectacular evening of entertainment. It's the best of the best – Canadian-style!
