UPDATE: A previous version of this article indicated that the Lucian statue would be travelling to Toronto, but unfortunately will no longer be a part of the experience. We apologize for any inconvenience.

As we announced earlier this month, NA LCS Summer Finals is headed to Toronto, Canada! From August 27-28 the Air Canada Centre will host the best League competition in the land, and a short walk away at the Metro Convention Center, we invite you to attend the League Community Expo - featuring The Riftwalk.


The Riftwalk

After its initial debut at PAX East, we shared that the Riftwalk would make further stops in 2016 all across North America, and first up is Toronto!

The Riftwalk is an immersive, interactive journey through League’s history, showcasing memorable moments from the last six years, beloved community contributors, and the community that’s made it all possible. Traveling the expansive pathways of Summoner’s Rift itself, you’ll find photo ops alongside its legendary locations and denizens, as well as busts, concept art, and cinematics highlighting League's evolution. You’ll also enjoy celebrations of League cosplay and exhibits dedicated to seminal community creators, including:

Last but far from least, we’re partnering with the folks at Stoopid Buddy Stoodios and 4 itchy Tasty! Cosplay to bring their stunning Thresh sky puppet back for another epic appearance on the Riftwalk. You’ll have the dubious privilege of meeting the Chain Warden in full 12-foot ghostly form and, should you master your fear, taking a photo that places you inside his lantern!


The Expo Experience

While the Riftwalk will be the heart of the Expo experience, it's by no means all we’ve got in store for attendees. You can also expect:

  • Our League fan art gallery - take in some of the best work from community artists, as well as artist bios and even a graffiti wall where your can leave your own contribution!
  • All the League cosplay you can handle - we’ll have the usual supply stop for cosplayers and their handlers, professional photography, and areas for the cosplayers to strut their stuff and interact with attendees.

How to attend

Tickets will NOT be sold on-site. If you’d like to attend the League Community expo in Toronto, you must reserve your ticket ahead of time via EventBrite. Tickets are $5 each, although Summer Final ticket holders (purchase those here) will receive a discount code in their Ticketmaster confirmation that can be used on EventBrite to fully discount their Expo ticket. Tickets will be limited to 4 per household. Any tickets bought or reserved that exceed this will be removed from your order and placed back into the EventBrite inventory.

When purchasing your ticket via EventBrite, you’ll be asked to select a reservation time. This reservation time is only for the Riftwalk - we’re spacing these out to keep your wait times short and the experience moving smoothly. The rest of the expo will be accessible to all ticket holders anytime during open hours.

All future updates will be covered on the Expo’s Facebook event page, so make sure to check back there for up-to-date info and final details. You’ll also want to stay tuned on lolesports.com for info on the Summer Final schedule and Air Canada Centre experience.




More details to come on further Riftwalk stops later in 2016, but in the meantime we’re incredibly excited to hit Toronto and see what the community’s got in store for Summer Finals. Hope to see you on the Rift(walk)!
