Weekly Newsletter: Ottawa Events September 3rd – 9th

“Back to school, back to school to prove to daddy that I’m not a fool…” – Billy Madison. It’s that time of the year! Summer vacation is over which means that the majority of festival season is also over. However, the focus is now leading to theatre and hockey (soon)!! After a break for a couple months, theatre season is starting up again this week. The Sock ‘n’ Buskin Theatre group is kicking off their season with a launch party at the Kailash Mital theatre at Carleton U. Also, The Gladstone has their first major production of this season with award winning “Cloudburst” starting Wednesday and running for two weeks. For concerts this week, you can catch Sam Roberts playing an outdoor show at the Algonquin Students Association building on Tuesday, and Ambush is rocking out again at the Barley Mow on Merivale Road.

This weekend, you can find PorchFest running Saturday through the community of Hintonburg and ending at Parkdale Park. There’s quite a line up of locations, so check out the event listing for the schedule. Another notable event is the Metaphysical and Spiritual show of Ottawa that is running Saturday and Sunday from 10am – 5pm each day. It’s being held at the Crowne Plaza in Gatineau. For you trivia buffs out there, you’ll find several trivia nights throughout the city, but my favourite is “The Office” trivia on Tuesday night at Mavericks.

My top three events of the week (actually 4…I couldn’t choose):

  • Pooches, Pints, and Yoga (CRAFT Beer Market, Saturday)
  • Mix and Mingle: Community Social (House of Common, Thursday)
  • Capital Pop-Up Cinema – Back to the Future (Beechwood Cemetery, Saturday)
  • Wiggle Waggle Walk and Run (Lansdowne Park, Sunday)


  • In case you missed it, the MARVEST lineup has been released. What a great listing of local bands in a very diverse set of venues! Have a look at my announcement here!
  • A new “Hidden Ottawa” post came out last week. If you’re looking for authentic Mexican food in an authentic looking Mexican restaurant, check out Casa Mexico! You can read the review here!
