This Saturday should be a great day in Ottawa.
For those not aware about our lovely city.
613 is Ottawa’s area code hence June being the 6th month.
Since people have called Ottawa a “boring” city.
Why not make it a change and let people know what to do for this unofficial day to call “613 Day”.
Encourage anyone to do a pop-up impromptu BBQs/day parties something for the family and friends.
Pending the weather, let’s hoping for something great!
For what I have gathered up.
Here is a list of what to do this Saturday (If I forgotten something please make a comment):
- Ottawa Makers Market FREE from 10am – 3pm on 715 Cooper St
- Ottawa Showbox Day Summer BBQ at Mugshots
12pm – 6pm FREE!
- the ottawa small press fair, spring 2015 edition at Jack Purcell Centre
12pm – 5pm
- Porch View Dances from 2pm-3pm. Part of the Canada Dance Festival
- Ottawa Just For Cats Festival.
- Live Jazz! at Mugshots at 9pm
- Jackpine 613 Day Sunet BBQ party at 6:13pm!
- First night of WESTFEST featuring performances by Sarah Harmer, Craig Cardiff, Rae Spoon and many more.
Hopefully I won’t get to miss this event taking place on June 1, 2013.
This is their second year doing this.
For all you bike and fashion lovers, check out this event.
Here is a blurb of the event:
The 2nd Annual Vélo Vogue Bicycle Fashion Show is taking place on Saturday, June 1st 2013 at Kichesippi Brewery at 866 Campbell Avenue (off of Carling), which is raising money for Cycle Salvation.
This is not your average fashion show; it’s a bicycle fashion show!
Models will be wearing stylish and functional attire while riding bikes.
An event would not be complete without food, drinks, silent auction, a raffle, and much more.
If you have nothing to do on May 9th. (Yes I know it’s a Thursday night! :P)
Why not check out this event called J’Adart!
Here is a blurb about the event:
J’Adart is Ottawa School of Art‘s fundraising for 2013.
Guided by their motto “Teaching art to everyone”, OSA has been Ottawa’s leading centre for visual arts education in the region since 1879.
In honour of this amazing night, they would very much appreciate your attendance to a memorable evening like J’adart.
Went to Fabrications Grand Opening on November 30th.
The store is located on 1098A Somerset St.
For those that don’t know what it is, basically they sell fabrics (ones that are unique or hard to find ones) and also give lessons on sewing.
I happened to know the owner of the store (Curtis and Carrie), so why not come to the grand opening and support them.
Check out their interview by apt613.
