Although further afield Chinatown Remix has got to be our pick of the weekend. On Saturday afternoon this neighbourhood based art/street party is free, adult and family oriented and is simply a great free local-scale event whereby artists’ works are displayed on the street and in the many participating restaurants for meanderers to cruise by and enjoy. Activities for kid’s dot the street and there is a beer garden all day in the parking lot of the Shanghai with an after-party too! It is all happening on Somerset West in Chinatown. Fun starts Saturday at 1PM and party goes til 11 – Go, meet, enjoy.
Thursday night marks the launch of the weekly night market in the Byward Market! Throughout the summer months every Thursday the Byward Market produce and stall vendors will be open and bustling til 8PM. See you on the market neighbour!
Friday night Cafe Nostalgica is the place to be with the ever groovy and ever popular return of TimeKode. Love these sessions.
Saturday afternoon when the puck drops at 1PM the seats are comfortable and the beer is cold at The Lunenburg. Go Habs Go.
Also on Saturday it’s Tac-o-the -Town Ottawa’s first ever TacoFest at the Ottawa Convention Centre. 15$ entry +2-4$ per taco
