By Hannah Manning on November 30, 2017


Well folks, we’ve had a few snowfalls and this Friday we flip the calendar to December. Whether you want to bundle up inside or get cozy with some hot chocolate outside, we’ve got you covered this weekend!


Get in the holiday spirit with the Canadian Museum of History’s tree lighting ceremony this evening. While you’re there, pop into the great hall and visit the Christmas Market and then head to Charlotte Gray’s talk at 7pm.


The European Union Film Festival continues this weekend. Friday night, Sve najbolje (All the Best) plays in Croatian with English subtitles at the National Gallery.

Award-winning singer-songwriter Irish Mythen will be playing the National Arts Centre Friday night. Tickets are available online for $15.

There’s a benefit for Children at Risk featuring GOOD2GO, Not Really and The Fog this Friday December 1 at Irene’s Pub. Funds raised will go towards providing services and programs to families of children diagnosed within the Autism Spectrum Disorders.


Ottawa’s own Pony Girl will be at the NAC’s Fourth Stage at 8:30pm.

Building the Wall, a play set in 2019 America under Trump, is on until December 3 at the Gladstone. There’s a Saturday matinee at 2:30pm, or evening shows at 7:30pm. For an interview with director Sean Devine, click here.

It’s beginning to look a lot like 613Christmas! The Fieldhouse at Carlton University transforms into a magical makers marketplace this Saturday from 10am-5pm.

Did you get a ticket to A Winter’s Tail, a fundraiser for the Ottawa Therapy Dogs? Learn more about the work they do here and get ready to have a great evening!

Dustbowl Daddies invites you to join them to kick off the holiday season, dance up a storm and support a great cause. 100% of the proceeds from the show will go to the Ottawa Rape Crisis Centre, who will be out to talk about the incredible work they do.


Round off your weekend with a night at the movies. De helleveeg (The Fury) plays at 4pm at the National Gallery.
