My Story

*UPDATE – THE CALENDAR FEATURE IS NOW LIVE*

Calendar of Events: http://www.covertottawaguy.com/events/

I’ve lived in Ottawa my whole life, growing up in Barrhaven and then moving around to different parts of the city, particularly the Westboro/Wellington West area and I’ve found myself back in Barrhaven (for now). I’m very social and outgoing person and have been involved with many organizations, sports leagues and festivals so I know a lot of people and I know Ottawa very well. This has given me an “IN” for information sources that helps me achieve my goals of this site. I’ve always enjoyed going out to events but through my life, I’ve become frustrated with the lack of consistent, complete and accurate information available for events around this city. So that has led to what has become a very time consuming hobby: The creation of this website….

Welcome to my site! The purpose of this site is two fold; first I will use this site to organize events in the Ottawa area into one comprehensive location where you will receive announcements and weekly/monthly planning tips for upcoming events at many venues to save you time from searching for something to do in the city. Secondly, after attending many events myself, both one-time events such as concerts and sporting matches, to repeating events that may run for several days, I will write reviews and recommendations on the event and tell you how I really feel. This will provide insight into what you may be interested in seeing in the future whether in Ottawa or in other cities if the event moves around. There is a lot more happening in Ottawa than you might think, you just need to know where to find the information and plan accordingly.

As my website and audience continues to grow, I’m seeking your help in feeding me information for your events. Please contact me and send me details. I’m happy to promote most events that are open to the public. The more information I can collect, the better. My goal is to be the best one-stop location for all event listings in Ottawa!

Ottawa might have been the city where “fun came to die” but while growing up here, I’ve never believed that and I’m going to do my best to keep it alive and prove it!!
