This might be the first weekend that we are suggesting you don’t get together with friends and, rather, that you stay home, or at least as far away from other humans as possible.
We’re still enjoying the pretty part of winter, and slowing down a little in the process
Happy holidays, folks! Around this time of year, no one is sure what day of the week it is and as such we have decided to write an extended Yuletide Roundup for you all. We’ve got the low-down on what is up this weekend, right through to New Year’s Eve.
Welcome to the first snow covered weekend in the city. If the cold temperatures and slippery sidewalks aren’t enough to make you think like a bear and hibernate this weekend, there is plenty to do out and about in Ottawa. So get bundled up and get out there. We promise you it’ll be worth it!
We’ve tried to pack as much as possible into this roundup, so read closely, text your crew, and have fun!

When TIMEKODE began at the Eri Cafe in 2005, it quickly became one of Ottawa’s most loved monthly dance parties. On the third Friday of every month, the Eri was packed. Seven years later, after their venue’s unforseen closure, TIMEKODE spread its roots and sprouted up in other spaces, including Maker Space North, the Elmdale, […]

September’s Ottawa Folk Fest marks the end of a summer of wonderful outdoor music festivals. Here is an account of its sights and sounds.
