Urban Asian has always supported charitable causes, of which TIGERFEST is one of them. TIGERFEST is an annual charity wrestling exhibition and free concert featuring wrestling legend Tiger Jeet Singh and his son former WWE superstar Tiger Ali Singh.
This year, TIGERFEST will take place in Chinguacousy Park on Saturday, September 24th – a date chosen to coincide with Brampton Day in order to capitalize on the crowds it traditionally attracts. Scotia Bank and Century 21 New Star Realty will be the presenting sponsors for this exciting family event.

- 5:00 PM – Bell Time! – TIGERFEST will culminate in a two hour exhibition of live professional wrestling with living legend Tiger Jeet Singh making a special guest appearance and his son former WWE superstar Tiger Ali Singh wrestling in the main event.
