Weekly Newsletter: Ottawa Events August 13th – 19th

Going in to the second full week of August didn’t really seem that eventful, but wow what a crazy week!!! Especially this coming weekend. Saturday looks as though it could be one of the busiest days Ottawa has seen throughout the whole year! Just go and have a look and save me from typing everything out a second time! ?

Festivals this week include the continuation of the South Asian Festival, and Greek Festival. This weekend also features Westboro Fuse on Saturday and Sunday, Bon-Fire (formerly the Arboretum Festival) on Friday and Saturday, the Capital Fair starts this Friday at the Rideau Carleton Raceway and finally, Hopped and Confused Music Festival runs Saturday and Sunday at Mill Street featuring greats bands such as Bedouin Soundclash and I Mother Earth.

Not forgetting about the sports enthusiast, but it’s a slow week for live sports. The Champions and Redblacks are on the road all week, but the Fury have a game Tuesday vs the Richmond Kickers and Saturday vs. the Indy Eleven.

My top three events of the week (Theme: BEER):

  • Caskapalooza (Sunday, CRAFT Beer Market)
  • 1971 Brewed with Pride Launch by Brew Donkey and Dominion City Brewing Company (Sunday, Brew Donkey)
  • Brewery Market (Saturday, Hintonburg Park)
