Here we are with the last full week of October, and aside from the start of Halloween events, there is so much going on in Ottawa! I’ve broken down my highlighted events by category:
Concerts: What a huge week for concerts in Ottawa! Monday night features Chilly Gonzales at the NAC and USS at the Algonquin Commons Theatre. I will be at the USS concert for sure!!! I saw them there last year, and what an amazing show. You can read that review here!! On Saturday, Roger Hodgson, from Supertramp is in town at TD Place. The Peptides are taking the stage at the NAC, Laidback Luke is at the EY Centre, and Disco inferno are playing at the Lone Star Ranch. Also live an in person, you can meet NHL “Legend” Curtis Joseph at an event on Saturday at Indigo Pinecrest.
Live Entertainment: The NAC continues it’s run of Silence this week right until Sunday. At the Gladstone this week, you’ll find week two of “This Flight Tonight: Songs of Joni Mitchell.” On Tuesday, there’s a pretty cool looking show on at Shenkman called “Thank you for Being a Friend”. It’s a puppet version of the Golden Girls, and the puppets look amazing!!! Also, at Arts Court, you can find the Rocky Horror Show: The Musical running from Friday onwards until Halloween. For two shows on Saturday, you’ll find the Paper Bag Princess Musical for the kids at Meridian Theatres at Centrepointe.
Trade Shows: This week has the Fall edition of the Ottawa Wedding Show at the EY Centre.
Halloween is getting closer!!! Saunders Farm continues its Frightfest on Friday and Saturday nights, despite the idiots that went and assaulted the actors last week (some people are a-holes!) The Day of the Dead grows near and as a celebration, on Thursday and Friday at the Sheraton Ottawa, there’s a festival going on to celebrate the food!!
“Récolte” continues until the end of October at Terrace on the Canal. This series of dinners allows you to eat a gourmet meal in a dome located beside the Rideau Canal. It looks amazing!! Tickets have sold really fast with only a few remaining, so make sure to grab them quickly!! Click here for full details.
