With daylight savings bringing an extra hour of sunshine to our wakeful time and the promise of light at the end of our workday, we hope this puts a little spring in your step ahead of the official change in seasons next weekend. There is plenty to do with that bit of extra pep this weekend, so without further ado, we give you: the Weekend Roundup.
As more cultural spaces and events come back to life, keep your ear to the ground about adjustments to COVID restrictions and make informed decisions about the businesses and venues that you want to support! The clocks move forward next weekend, so embrace this last weekend of “winter” and take back the little parts of our city that bring you joy.
There are lots of ways to help support struggling businesses downtown — even if you don’t have money to order gift certificates or products with. Go to your favourite business’ social media and like, save, and share their posts to help spread the word. If you can support financially, don’t forget to check ahead if businesses are open and operating fully before heading down!
Family Day weekend is upon us, but things are still pretty weird around town. Stay safe, support local businesses, and check in on friends and family.
It’s the weekend — and with the ongoing state of emergency here in Ottawa, we can bet what everyone needs is an opportunity to rest and recalibrate. Here are some suggestions for how you can go about doing so.
Hi friends, how are you holding up? We’ve come to another weekend in our beautiful city, and this was originally going to be a post all about the hundreds of fantastic things that we can do again, now that Ontario has entered Step 1 of our gradual winter re-opening. In some parts of the city […]
Alright, hopefully this is the home stretch in the lockdown for a while now… But don’t worry, there are still lots of great ideas that are still happening and not date-specific
After that record snowfall, we’ve got no shortage of events and activities for anyone who loves getting outside and breathing in that frosty fresh air.
A big shoutout to everyone who’s pivoted, clamped down, postponed and reshuffled their plans, events and businesses once again as we try to get through this wave of the pandemic. Don’t forget to check out your fave local businesses and restaurants to see what they’re offering online or as takeout to help them get through this too!
Due to new pandemic restrictions, this week’s roundup does away with our traditional Roundup in favour of a curated pile of ideas to get you through the weekend and hopefully the next little while!
The Weekend Roundup crew are taking a couple of weeks off to rest and recharge. It’s been quite a year—we hope that you all find some peace and contentment this holiday season. We’ll be back in the New Year with our regularly scheduled Weekend Roundups. Happy holidays, Ottawa!
It’s the final full weekend before Christmas so if you’ve still got some shopping to do, this is your friendly reminder to get out there! All done shopping? Enjoy one (or all!) of this week’s festive events.
We’re now full-blown into the holiday market season, but don’t worry — that’s not all there is to do around town! Read on for plenty of suggestions including drag shows, films, art, live music, and more. Thursday Who doesn’t love a Drag Show Karaoke Fundraiser?! Mavericks is hosting this 19+ event with Fashion Design Academy […]
Why not start December the same way we intend to end it? With a fun weekend of music, the arts, and time spent with our favourite people.
This weekend marks the end of November and, with December quickly approaching, the holiday season has begun. While you could keep yourself as busy as Santa on Christmas Eve with all the craft fairs and holiday markets this weekend, there are a few other great things happening here in Ottawa that you won’t want to miss out on either.
