About the Event

Submissions are now open for Lady Arcaders: Out of Bounds Toronto; an in-person women & femme speedrunning event taking place on Tuesday, June 18th, 2024 (time TBD)!

This event is in participation with Toronto Games Week 2024. The event runs from June 13-19th. Toronto Games Week is a celebration of playable arts and culture! It is a collective coordination of events organized independently by dozens of organizations, creators, curators, and companies.
