What's Happening This Weekend in Ottawa and Area

The trees are finally starting to turn and it’s starting to feel more like fall.

Fall Rhapsody continues in Gatineau Park. This weekend, enjoy the colours and family-friendly activities at Lac Phillipe. From guided hikes to animal demonstrations, there’s something for everyone.


More gorgeous greenery is available at Jacques-Cartier Park. It’s the final weekend of MosaïCanada 150. Canada's 10 provinces and 3 territories, as well as First Nations Québec and Labrador, unite to present 33 masterful works over five historical sectors.


This Saturday, the Canada War Museum hosts the Whisky Ottawa Festival. Did you know Jack Daniel’s is also turning 150 this year? There’s plenty more whisky and food to try, too.


The ByWard Market Sausage Fest continues this weekend. This Saturday, at William Square, it’s the 2nd annual Sausage Party. Fill your mouth with meaty goodness!


Spooky Hallowe’en activities continue at Saunders Farm. Be prepared to be scared, especially this Friday the 13th!


On Saturday, the living dead overwhelm the Diefenbunker! The Incident at the Bunker: A Zombie Adventure will lead you through an interactive adventure with the undead, deep inside the labyrinth that is the Cold War Museum.


As 2017 continues, Ottawa Welcomes the World! This Sunday at Lansdowne, Ottawa welcomes Japan. Japanese cultural events and demonstrations – such as kendo, dance and music, martial arts, and more – will accompany Japanese food and even sake!
