If there were medals for entertainment, Panamania would have owned the podium at Toronto's Pan Am/Parapan Am Games.

Artists as diverse as The Roots, Janelle Monáe and Jann Arden brought the house down with some amazing sets at Nathan Phillips Square. The concerts wrapped up with some rollicking performances from Austra and A Tribe Called Red on Wednesday night.

On top of two months of free concerts followed by fireworks after each show, Panamania also included a long list of arts and cultural festivities like theatre shows and exhibits.

And besides the actual games, the whole city would agree the concerts were definitely the best part.

Here are some highlights from Panamania:
