Welcome to tulip season, friends! It seems like the whole city has come alive in the last week, with the magnolias exploding off their branches and the tulips suddenly coming out of nowhere. We are solidly heading towards a warm, welcoming spring.
Ottawa is on the edge of a beautiful spring—all we need after the recent rain (and snow!) is a bit of sunshine, which conveniently is in the forecast for this weekend.
Hopefully a lot of you have a long weekend to enjoy, whether you’re celebrating anything or not! There are plenty of great local events for you to enjoy, and some of them involve finding chocolate eggs.
What a weekend we have in store! Pack your sunglasses and your umbrella because spring is on its way.
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!
If you’d rather wait til December 1 to get into the holiday mood, there are plenty of other options this weekend.
Happy November! As more events keep going live, and cool things are popping up all over town, I hope you’re enjoying yourselves, friends! We are solidly into that part of the year when snow could be on the horizon any day now, and Mother Nature is keeping us all on our toes. Take this as […]

Whether you’re checking out some local fall foliage, listening to live music, or or watching the game (pick your sports, there are plenty of options this weekend), we’ve got your weekend plans covered.
As we get into the swing of October, whether you’re a foodie, adventurer, clotheshorse, or all of the above, there is lots to do this long weekend!
Welcome to the first weekend of fall, folks! The weather is cooling, the leaves are changing, and there is plenty going on – so let’s get out there and enjoy ourselves this weekend.
The end of August is upon us. It may not seem like it, with the blazing hot weather we’ve been having, but summer is winding down. Thankfully, there is plenty to do this weekend – whether in person or virtually – to help you make the most of one of the last weekends of the season.
Summer is not over yet, so as the community’s vaccination numbers rise, take advantage of Ottawa’s hot summer days to soak up some sun, catch up with some friends, and get reacquainted with all the cool nooks and crannies of the city that we love! Stay safe, celebrate August, check in on your isolated friends and family, and take care of one another!
