RvBTO is an annual, not-for-profit, web-community event held in Toronto, based on the popular machinima series, Red vs Blue.
It began in 2005 and quickly became a huge success with over 250 people in attendance in the first year. The name RvBTO is an acronym for Red vs Blue: Toronto.
The event focuses mainly on the show, Red vs Blue, with fans visiting from Canada, United States, and all over the world. Every year, special guests from Rooster Teeth Productions (the creators of Red vs Blue) have come to the event to announce the release of the new season, answer questions from the audience, and participate in the weekend’s activities.
RvBTO is run by a small volunteer committee. Each person or team is responsible for one or more aspects of planning the event.
