Weekly Newsletter: Ottawa Events April 9th – 15th

As April is chugging along, and we’re getting closer and closer to really great festival/outdoor weather, we can’t forget all the fun things going on indoors still! This week seems a little quieter than last, because, well….it is, but there’s still lots to take in around the city. Starting off with theatre, we’re once again fortunate to have so many great venues in Ottawa. Blink continues for its second week at The Gladstone, Dracula! By the Royal Winnipeg Ballet is on Thursday – Saturday at the National Arts Centre, and James Bond: A Convenient Lie runs Thursday to Sunday at Centrepointe Theatres. If you’re looking for something to entertain your young kiddies, you can go see the Shopkins LIVE! Performance at TD Place on Saturday.

Trade shows this week include the Backyard Life and Cottage Show at the EY Centre running Friday to Sunday, and the National Spring Women’s Show at the Shaw Centre Saturday and Sunday. A little slower on the concert side this week with only Johnny Reid at TD Place on Friday to mention.

My top three picks of the week:

  • Maybe not exactly an event, but definitely top of my list: 50% off eggrolls at Golden Palace!!! (Thursday, 11am – 10pm at the Golden Palace)
  • Carefor Desserts (YUM!!!) (Saturday, Sala San Marco)
  • Food Sort Challenge (Friday, Aberdeen Pavilion)


  • Although over a week ago, I attended the Nelly Concert at Algonquin Commons Theatre. If you’re interested in my review, you can find it here!
  • I also saw The Illusionists at the NAC last Sunday and was able to get a review done. You can find that one here!
  • This week’s event review will be James Bond: A Convenient Lie. I’ll be there Thursday night, and have the review out ASAP in case you’re on the fence about getting tickets.
  • My new website is almost done!!! I have some new features coming.
  • I am proud to say that I was invited to sit on a panel hosted by Ottawa Festivals last Thursday and answer questions with fellow bloggers on promotion successes and experiences. It was an excellent opportunity to meet people in the industry and share my thoughts.
