Chuckles, football and Farmer’s Market in the Glebe this weekend

October 19, 2018 | by glebeadmin


I hope you’re ready to chuckle, cheer and hike, because this weekend will have you on the move in the Glebe.

There’s everything from an important REDBLACKS game with first place on the line and a funny fest with two of the world’s funniest comedians in Steve Martin and Martin Short to the Farmers’ Market and live jazz at Industria.

It all kicks off, literally, tonight at TD Place when the Ottawa REDBLACKS take to the field against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. First place in the East Division is on the line, as both the REDBLACKS and the Ti-Cats have an 8-7-0 record, with Ottawa holding the tie-breaker. A win over the Tiger-Cats will vault them into sole possession of first place – giving them an even greater chance at earning a bye into the East final. But they will still have to finish the season strong, as they have another tilt at Hamilton next weekend before ending the season against the Argonauts on Nov. 2. Kick off for Friday’s game is at 7 p.m. Click here for tickets.

Looking to take a brisk stroll through the Glebe this weekend? Why not raise some money for blood cancer research while you’re at it? The 2018 Light the Night Walk kicks off at 5 p.m. Saturday evening at the Aberdeen Pavilion.  The night will feature live music, food and inspirational entertainment.

Call a doctor, because you’ll need some stitches after Saturday night. The legendary duo of Steve Martin and Martin Short are taking over The Arena at TD Place for a night of gut-busting laughter for their An Evening You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Life tour. The two comedians will be joined by Grammy Award-winning bluegrass band The Steep Canyon Rangers and renowned jazz pianist and Jimmy Kimmel Live band member Jeff Babko for a night of musical sketches, conversation, and of course, live stand up. Tickets start at $65. Click here to get yours.

There are only two outdoor market days left this year at the Ottawa Farmers’ Market at Lansdowne Park, so now is your chance to stock up on walnuts, pumpkins, cabbage and a whole list of goods before the market heads indoors for the winter. The market runs every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Click here for more information.

After the market, why not head indoors for some live music? Industria Pizzeria and Bar offers free live jazz every Sunday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. with a roster of rotating local musicians to keep you grooving. Click here for more information.
