Turn Sunday into a fun day in the Glebe.

Party it up Barbados style all day Sunday with Ottawa 2017’s Welcomes the World series with the Caribbean island on deck for a day of live calypso, soca, and of course the music of Barbados Cultural Ambassador Rihanna. Taste traditional Bajan dishes and take a virtual tour of the tropical island. The event is free for everyone and runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Sunday afternoon will be an edge-of-your-set kind of day, as Ottawa Fury FC desperately pushes for a playoff spot against the Eastern Conference-leading Louisville City FC. The Fury are four points out of a playoff spot, and with just five games remaining, the squad will need every point it can get. Kickoff is at 2 p.m. at TD Place. Click here for tickets.
Sports fans should stay in the Glebe for Saturday evening’s Ottawa 67s’s home-opener vs. the Erie Otters at 7 p.m. The game is also a 50th anniversary celebration game with the team honouring the 1967-77 era with an in-arena legacy project that will be unveiled during Sunday’s game. The 67’s will play seven anniversary games this season, starting with Sunday’s home opener. Come cheer on the NHL’s future stars and help commemorate the many great moments of 67s’ past – like their dramatic overtime win in 1999 to win their second Memorial Cup in franchise history.

This Sunday, like every Sunday, also features the Ottawa Farmers’ Market from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Aberdeen Square at Lansdowne. Cabbages, parsnips and pears are in season this month, as are brussels sprouts and cranberries to get you prepped for Thanksgiving. Click here for more information on the Farmers’ Market.
