Weekly Newsletter: Ottawa Events, April 30th – May 6th

This week kicks off the month of May, and with that, the arrival of great festival/outdoor weather! There’s also two very important holidays this week. Friday, we celebrate Star Wars Day (May the 4th be with you), and the next day is Cinco de Mayo!

Although no large trade shows, festivals or major concerts, there are still plenty of fun events going on throughout the week. For the events running on a regular schedule, this is the week to get them checked off your bucket list. I would suggest a Brew Donkey tour this weekend. If you’ve ever considered doing one of these, their most popular tour is available Saturday where you can drink beer and throw axes!! What could go wrong? The also have an east end brewery tour Friday evening and a second south end tour running Saturday. You can read my review of a Brew Donkey tour here!

The major traveling event on for the week takes place Monday night; the WWE live event at the Canadian Tire Centre. The Gladstone Theatre continues its run of “Snake Oil” and “Play On!” Is running Thursday to Saturday at the Ron Kolbus Centre in Britannia Beach. For an unusual Yoga experience on Sunday, you can choose from Goat Yoga at the Maple Hill Urban Farm, or the new Puppy Yoga at Inner Soul Yoga and Cycle. I’m also happy to announce that Zumba on the Hill is running again this year and starts on Sunday. You can get your Zumba on each Sunday from May 6th until the end of September (with a few weeks off around Canada Day).

Last Sunday (April 29th) was the start of the Ottawa, Welcome to Soirée event at Terrace on the Canal. This venue looks so incredible. I haven’t checked on ticket availability, but I imagine it will sell out. It runs every day for the entire month with multiple seatings.

My top three picks of the week:

  • Chocolate Affair Gala (Saturday, Location: TBD….see event link for details)
  • Ottawa Life Magazine Cover Me Competition Finals (Sunday, Moose Mcguire’s)
  • 613flea (Saturday, Aberdeen Pavilion)
