Charity Events


Once again, Otafest is proud to continue our tradition of raising money for both local and international communities. This year, Otafest has selected the Distress Centre - Calgary to benefit from festival activities and fundraisers.

The Distress Centre ensures everyone has a place to turn in a time of crisis by providing 24 hour crisis support, professional counselling, and 211 referrals - all at no cost. Their vision is that everyone is heard.

Get involved in our many fundraising initiatives over the weekend:

  • Charity Auction
  • Maid Café
  • Donation Jars
  • Live Action Mario-Kart Racing
  • & more!!

Otafest hopes to raise a minimum of $5,000 in support of our charity. If we are able to achieve this milestone, the Otafest Executive team will undergo an embarrassing, often messy, charity event at Otafest Closing Ceremonies - you won’t want to miss it.
