Support Local: We build this city

By Karen Diepeveen on September 30, 2014

It’s clear that there’s a lot of love for Ottawa these days. Heck, our city is even shaped like a heart. And so, to show our love for this city, we’ve brought Support Local month back for its fourth year.

What is Support Local? It’s a month-long series of unique, collaborative events, showcasing the best our creative side has to offer. We’ve got breweries taking over restaurants, crafters making small special batches of goods, and an awesome day out in Almonte on the 25th with pop-up shops and patio parties – these are just a few of the great events planned for October.

This year’s theme is We Build This City. It’s all about what we’re doing together, as a community – what we’ve built, what we’re building, and what we’re going to build. This city is constantly being constructed, re-imagined, and expanded because of the deep collaborative spirit that supports it all.

So get out and Support Local all month long! Check out our events calendar for full listings, and head over to our Support Local page for even more details.


A big thanks to Steve St Pierre of Maker for this year’s design and theme. And kudos to our sponsors: Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company, Community Arts and Social Engagement (City of Ottawa), and the Public Service Alliance of Canada.
