Canadian Individual Poetry Slam Finals
The top 12 poets from prelims advance to this bout. Who will claim the title of 2015 Canadian Individual Poetry Slam Champion?

This closing gala includes a feature presentation by Vancouver Poet Laureate, Rachel Rose.

Poets in finals will be performing three-minute poems. The first round will consist of twelve poets. The top seven highest-scoring poets will move on to the second round. Then, the top four highest-scoring poets from the second round move on to the third (and final) round. The highest-scoring poet in the third round becomes the Canadian Individual Poetry Slam Champion. It's a blank slate each round, not cumulative score. The order in each round is determined by random draw.

In 2014, The Rio was completely sold out for this event. Buy your tickets early if you want to see this showcase of the very best poetry slammers from across Canada.

Doors at 7pm. Show starts 8pm.

This show is All Ages (the balcony will be reserved for audience members 18 and younger while alcohol will be allowed on the ground level). It may contain strong language, controversial issues, and words that make you re-evaluate your life. General seating. Advance tickets are NOT mailed out they can be picked up at the Will Call station at the venue.Box office and Will Call will open with doors at 7pm. Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferrable.


While the main space at The Rio is wheelchair accessible, the washrooms are not wheelchair accessible because of the size of the stalls and configuration of the doors. An update to the accessibility audit of The Rio was completed in January 2015 and the information from that audit will be added to this event as soon as the report is published.
