Now in it’s second year, the Toronto Blue Jays Winter Fest, presented by TD, returns to the Rogers Centre, even bigger and better. This year, Winter Fest took place over two days (January 19-20). Loyal fans were invited to participate in spring training activities, autograph signings, games with prizes, and tons of inflatables for children. The projected attendance for the weekend was over 20,000 people! How do you manage lines, enjoyment and safety for over 20,000+ attendees? Hire a Toronto event staffing agency to support you!
In 2018, we provided the Toronto Blue Jays with 1 Event Manager and 30 brand ambassadors for Winter Fest on one isolated day. This year, we had 2 Event Managers and 40 events staff over the entire weekend! Sounds like a lot of people, wouldn’t you agree? It is, but each staff member had a crucial role in adhering to the success of the event. Staff were divided to manage the following: Spring Training Zone, Jr. Jays Park (inflatables and carnival games) as well as an Arcade Zone with DDR and basketball!
Overall, the weekend was a huge success. Our contact from Blue Jays stated, “From the entire team here at the Blue Jays, we want to say thank you to you and all of your staff for an amazing experience at Winter Fest this year! We had so much amazing feedback from everyone who worked with your team. It’s so helpful to be able to trust an external team to support us with an event of such magnitude. We’d be thrilled to work with you all again!” We’d like to call that a 5-star review, wouldn’t you agree?
