Canada Day #Ottawa
I am a big fan of Canada Day activities downtown, but as a general rule I stay away from Parliament Hill as I find it too crowded with little room to escape when needed. For those who do not mind the crowds, there are some good Canadian Acts playing again this year. You can find more information on the Canada Day Website.
As an alternative, my picks for Canada Day include Sweet Alibi on the Jazz Festival Laurier Stage at 3pm, Current Swell on the Jazz Festival Main Stage at 6pm and Paper Lions on the Major’s Hill Park Bell Stage at 8:30pm. Another option is Shannon Rose & The Thorns at 8 Locks’ Flat at 4pm.
Another alternative is Canada Day at the NAC where you will find The Peptides playing shows at Noon and 1:15pm and NAC Orchestra playing shows with Kellylee Evans at 2:30pm and 7:30pm.
