Travel & Accommodations

How to get here... and stay here!


All TCAF events are free to attend and do not require tickets or charges unless otherwise specified. General exceptions to this rule have been related musical events and our Friday night launch, which have required tickets and/or admission charges. We want to break down the barriers between comics and the general public, and ensure any money that our attendees spend goes into the pockets of the hardworking authors, artists, and publishers exhibiting at TCAF. If you don’t see a prominently-listed price on a TCAF event, there isn’t one.


While TCAF is a multi-venue event, the main Festival Venue is Toronto Reference Library.

Toronto Reference Library (TRL)
789 Yonge Street
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
M4W 2G8

The closest major intersection is Yonge & Bloor. The closest subway station is TTC Yonge/Bloor Station.


The official hotel of TCAF will be The Marriott Bloor/Yorkville, located less than a block away from our main Festival venue at Toronto Reference Library.

This year TCAF has secured a rate of $199 per night at this hotel, based on a double booking. Bookings available May 9th to May 15th.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to a problem with Marriott’s online booking, you must select “2 people” to have the 2 queen beds option appear. You can have up to 4 people in a room, but they must be added after booking. You can also book directly via the phone number and ask for the TCAF rate.
