The final weekend in August is upon us and fall is just around the corner. There are plenty of things to see and do this weekend to squeeze every last bit of fun out of this wonderful season we call summer.
Live! on Elgin
It is Ottawa’s favourite season, friends: festival season! Coming hard on the heels of Jazzfest is our world-famous Bluesfest. Mix in the Lebanese Festival and the Stewart Park festival in Perth and you have got one perfect 613 weekend. Enjoy the sunshine and hit the beach, support a local patio, or take in any of the amazing musical acts happening around the city.
We are one work week closer to real spring now, friends. Can you feel it? While the blossoms are slower to arrive than last year, we are counting our blessings and watching closely for the next perfect moment to hit a patio! This weekend is one for the books, with the launch of undercurrents—back in person!—and the Ottawa Grassroots Festival bringing new musical voices to downtown. The NAC is hitting it out of the park, as usual, and there is some great eco-conscious ultra-local shopping to do to round out the perfect spring weekend.
What a weekend we have in store! Pack your sunglasses and your umbrella because spring is on its way.
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.
This gift guide is for your creative friends and family, whether they create or consume art, or enjoy doing both. Feel free to treat yourself to these awesome experiences and opportunities too. After all, when do we ever have too much art and culture in our lives?!
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.
It has been a long winter and this weekend we celebrate the arrival of spring, sunny skies, and above-zero temperatures. Whether you’re eager to get outside or you’re keen to stay home, we’ve some fun ideas as to how to make the most of your time this weekend.
We have made it into summer’s wind down and it is time to soak up all we can of these remaining summer weekends. Make it a priority to get outside and enjoy the sunshine while we can. There are plenty of reasons to get out and about this weekend, if the fleeting warmth of the season’s sunny skies isn’t enough to draw you from your living room. Here are just a few of them.
There’s a lot of good food in Ottawa.
