As we move out of a warm week of beautiful weather and into the third weekend of this great month, we have a whole lot of music (and plenty more) in store for you. Thursday is World Food Day and the Good Food Box is hosting a World Food Day Ottawa event at the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health. There, you can enjoy some delicious bannock and learn about sustainable food production. With bellies full, there is still room to savour some art.

Dan Hopkins and Dan Beardsley, creators of the Brew Bus Lounge and this year’s aVibe Music and Arts Festival, put on the first of their Brew Bus Lounge Sessions this past Saturday. A scaled down version of their festival, which incorporated a variety of artisans and healthier-choice food concessions, these sessions focus on live music in a more intimate setting, and a chance to sample some of our local, craft brews. I was eager to check it out. I arrived at the scene of a quaint home, with a path... | Continue reading article

Vankleek Hill, a small beautiful community an hour east of Ottawa, was the place to be this past weekend as 14,000 attendees experienced Beau’s Brewery 6th annual Oktoberfest. For those unfamiliar with this German-inspired, beer-soaked celebration, it dates back to October 12, 1810, when the German Crown Prince Ludwig married Princess Therese. They threw one heck of a party and invited all of Munich to join them and, as it was an open-bar, they obliged. Munich has kept the annual tradition alive and the party has been emulated all over... | Continue reading article
