Weekly Newsletter: Ottawa Events April 23rd – 29th

Here we are moving further into spring weather with more opportunities to spend time out doors. This week has quite a variety of events, but the highlight seems to be on kid’s events for the weekend. You can skip the rest of this paragraph if you aren’t interested in the kiddie’s stuff. On Saturday, you’ll find the Baby and Kids sale on at the Bell Sensplex, and a Mermaid party at Boston Pizza in Barrhaven. Sunday, the National Arts Centre Orchestra for kids has three shows, and also Peppa Pig is coming to you live, also from the NAC.

Onto the more adult events, George Thorogood is the concert of the week on Tuesday night at the NAC. You’ll find a new play called Snake Oil starting up at The Gladstone Theatre, and the NAC also hosts three nights of The Best of Broadway.

If you didn’t have a chance to make it out to Poutine Fest last weekend, have no fear, this week, there are TWO more Poutine Festivals, one on either side of the river! If you’re a fan of stand-up comedy, you’ll also have a choice to make Friday night with live shows at Lowertown Brewery, Wellington Eatery, and Fat Tuesdays.

Sunday night is the first night of “Ottawa, Welcome to Soirée”. Have a look at the details, and try and book an evening there, it’s pretty cool looking, and although I haven’t yet confirmed, I imaging there are not many tickets left. There are three seatings per day from April 29th – May 28th. Check it out for yourself though….it’s very #Ottawa2017 like.

My top three picks of the week:

  • Palooza Beer Pong Festival (Saturday, Aberdeen Pavilion)
  • Rooftop Beats and Brunch (Sunday, Andaz Hotel)
  • Nature Nocturne (Friday, Museum of Nature)


  • Last Saturday, I was honoured to be a ‘celebrity’ judge at Poutine Fest!! It was an amazing experience! I got to eat 15 different poutines in one sitting! UGH!! It was great trying all the different takes on this classic meal. I ranked them all, and my favorite won! Hooray! You can read my review here and have a look at the pictures.
