Weekly Newsletter: Ottawa Events July 30th – August 5th

With the summer now half over, we’re well into festival season and the fun continues this week right into August. Thursday is the first day of both the Capital Ribfest at City Hall, and the International Busker Festival starts on Sparks Street. Both these festivals run until Sunday. There’s also the Black and Bluegrass Festival on Friday at the Rainbow and Saturday at Mavericks.

Sports fans can take in an Ottawa Champion’s game Tuesday – Sunday with three games each against the New Jersey Jackals and the Sussex County Miners. Also, there’s an Ottawa Fury game on Friday night versus the Tampa Bay Rowdies.

My top three events of the week:

  • Casino Lac Leamy Sound of Lights Show (International Fireworks Competition) (Saturday, Museum of Natural History)
  • Orangemen Concert (Friday, Rideau Carleton Raceway)
  • Roastery Tour (Saturday, Bridgehead)


  • This past week, tickets went on sale for a major musical event happening next January. Harry Potter and the Philosopher Stone™ will be playing at the Canadian Tire Centre to the music of the NAC Orchestra! My pre-sale tickets were only available last week, but regular priced tickets are now available. Read the Pre-sale announcement here.
