What’s a Pingfest? It's a friendly get-together for Coronation Street fans, many of whom have met on the Internet, although any fan is very welcome to attend. The term comes from a misspelling of the word "pintfest.” Further definition of ‘Pingfest’ at

We Corrie Canuck folk held a couple of social events we call “Corrie Canuck Pub Nites,” though I suppose technically they’re Pingfests in their own right. Our Jacqueline will be arranging another pub nite in Toronto when she returns from hols so stay tuned.

Take a look at some of these Pingfest pages from Canadian cities …

Winnipeg, Manitoba (check out the prizes!)

Mississauga, Ontario (where they play “pingo,” a Corrie-themed bingo)

Halifax, Nova Scotia (Next Pingfest April 9, 2006)

If you’ve been to a Pingfest, please tell us about it.

Why not organize one in your town?
