Covert Ottawa Weekly Update: Ottawa Events July 8th – 14th

Summer has finally hit with a vengeance with some crazy hot and humid weather. But we’re used to that here, and it beats the cold and snow any day (at least in my opinion). That weather looks to continue this week with only a few breaks here and there. That makes it perfect to continue our festival season, which is still going strong.

We’ve still got two long running music festivals in full swing all week. Ottawa Bluesfest starts week #2 on Tuesday and runs right through until Sunday night. Some of the amazing acts this week are Kygo, Snoop, The Offspring, Wu Tang, Alexisonfire, and the Back Street Boys. Also continuing this week, the Music and Beyond festival has so many great events right up until the 18th. There are so many shows at great little intimate venues around the city. Check out their website for the full schedule! That’s not it for festival season though. On Saturday, HOPE Beach Volleyball Summerfest runs all day with some great concerts there too including Elijah Woods x Jamie Fine, Hollerado, and The Beaches. Another festival that I’ve discovered for next week is called Mess-Tival and takes place on Saturday at the Goulbourn Museum. It features the messiest crafts and activities that they could find and is great for all ages!

For sports this week, the Ottawa Redblacks take on the Montreal Alouettes on Saturday night at TD Place, and the Ottawa Fury FC are playing against Louisville City FC on Sunday at 2pm.

 Where will I be?

This week, I can be found at Bluesfest for basically the entire week. It’s just so much fun with so much to do even outside the concerts. Why wouldn’t I be there?? Wednesday night, I’m likely heading to the Horticulture Building for the eSAX Entrepreneur Social Advantage Experience session. This is such a great event where like-minded entrepreneurs can meet, mingle and share their wisdom. It’s a ton of fun!!
