Whether your long weekend was an end-of-summer blur, or a relaxing last hurrah at the cottage, the shortened work week means that another weekend is already upon us. This is a great chance to try something new, or spend the weekend outdoors patio sitting and taking in some fun local outdoor live events.
After the hullabaloo and heatstroke of the long weekend has passed, we are faced with another beautiful weekend in our city, and no limit of ways to fill it. Bluesfest starts with a bang on Thursday night and rolls right on through the weekend. If Lebreton Flats is not your destination of choice, mix it up a little bit with a poutine in Gatineau, a soccer game, some classical music or a Shakespeare play for a little culture.
Down in Ottawa, we like to refer to this time of the year as six-one-three season, or “61threeson.” You know what I’m talking about: it’s the time of year just after the tulips close, and summer hasn’t quite happened, but it’s warm and the city has awoken to a deluge of events, events, events.
The Extended Moment: Fifty Years of Collecting Photographs is on at the National Gallery of Canada. The exhibit features photography from Canadian and international artists and shows the power of photography.
Impressionist Treasures: The Ordrupgaard Collection gives us a glimpse of one of Europe’s most beautiful but lesser-known collections. Through 60 paintings, it traces the progression of 19th century French painting from the Barbizon School and realism, to post-impressionism, including works by French masters Monet, Courbet, Manet, Matisse and Renoir, among others.
It is time to rejoice, we’ve a long weekend ahead! A whole extra day to get out and enjoy what this fine city has to offer! This weekend there is a ton of stuff going on, so we might as well get to it.
PhotoLab 4: New Generation Photography Award Exhibition is on display at the National Gallery of Canada until August 19, 2018.
Welcome to the last of the winter weekends—although it might not feel like it, with all the snow we’ve been getting and a dip into colder temperatures over the weekend. Despite spring’s clever disguise, be sure to get out there and celebrate its arrival. There are plenty of exciting goings on in this fine city, to help you do it right!
Gift of Jazz: From Africa to New Orleans to The True North Strong and Free will take place at the National Gallery on Thursday February 15 and Friday February 16 as a tribute to Black History Month, celebrating the tour de force that is jazz music.
This late into December, weekend outings in Ottawa will inevitably involve some measure of holiday-themed craft shows. And while this week’s Weekend Roundup is certainly full of cheer, I hope there’s a little bit for everyone, Grinch and otherwise. Oh yeah, and there’s some hockey stuff going on.
This weekend has something for everyone: from skating to Christmas lights to an art draw to a repair cafe, you’re sure to find something up your alley. Enjoy!
Well folks, we’ve had a few snowfalls and this Friday we flip the calendar to December. Whether you want to bundle up inside or get cozy with some hot chocolate outside, we’ve got you covered this weekend!
On December 2, Beyond the Pale Brewing will mark its 5th anniversary with an epic, yet refined, party at the National Gallery of Canada.
Another glorious weekend is upon us, Ottawa. A weekend so full of fun, that it is impossible to do it all. Despite this, we like to keep you in the know re: all things cool, so here you have it – the Weekend Roundup.
