July 19, 2018 | by glebeadmin


If you’re a fan of sports, sharp knives, kombucha, and music, then it won’t be hard for you to find things to do this weekend in the Glebe.

The neighbourhood is packed with events from Thursday to Sunday – and there’s truly something for everyone in your family.

It all starts Thursday night with the Blacksmith Canadian Tour at Knifewear in the glebe. The Bank Street knife shop is bringing in three Masakage and Ironclad blacksmiths including the world’s greatest knife sharpener Takayukui Shibata, as well as Yoshimi Kato and Takumi Ikeda. Come down and see these masters at work from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Knifewear. Click here for more information.

It’s football night in the Glebe on Friday, as the REDBLACKS take on the BC Lions at TD Place. The REDBLACKS are looking to right the ship after an embarrassing 27-3 loss to the Calgary Stampeders last week. Despite a 2-2 record, the REDBLACKS sit atop the East Division standings, while the BC Lions sit in third in the West with the same record. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. Click here for tickets.

Algonquin College is throwing a huge bash this Saturday and Sunday on the Great Lawn, and they’ve invited some pretty big names like Big Sugar and the Lazys to help them celebrate. The music festival kicks off at 3:30 p.m. on Friday and run until 9 p.m. Saturday’s lineup hits the stage at 1 p.m. with bands like Stynger, We Were Sharks and Crown Lands. Click here for tickets.

The Ottawa Fury may be sitting in 10th place in the Eastern Conference, but they are only five points out of fifth place – and a win over Nashville this weekend could be the beginning of a push up the standings. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. Click here for tickets.

Did someone say Kombucha? Canada’s international Kombucha Festival is hitting the Glebe Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. inside the Horticulture Building. Take part in the homemade Kombucha competition, sample Kombucha drinks and even take private Kombucha making lessons. Click here for more information.

Do you like apples? Well, the Ottawa Farmers’ Market will have lots of them this weekend, as well as apricots, broccoli, blueberries and corn. The market runs every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. outside of the Aberdeen Pavilion. How do you like them apples? Click here for more information.
