The exhibit is presented by the Royal Ontario Museum in celebration of the ROM Centennial and the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival. The Entire City Project: Royal Ontario Museum is a primary exhibition of the festival. CONTACT is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, Celebrate Ontario, and the Ontario Arts Council.

Use ROMBucks to buy great food and drink from local providers - the finishing touch to the Friday festivities

Here's how to score your sumptuous snacks and dashing drinks:

  • You pay the vendors with ROMBucks, not with cash.
  • Before FNL, you can pre-purchase ROMBucks from the Admissions Desk from 10 am to 4 pm daily - the fastest way to nab your noms.
  • At FNL, you can buy ROMBucks at dedicated stations.
  • ROMBucks cost $6 each. (We can't refund unused ROMBucks, but they're good for the whole season.)

(May we at the ROM just add: calories schmalories. Life is short and food is good. If you eat it up, dance it off! Then come back 3 weeks later and do it again.)
