Weekend What’s Up: Canadian Eats, dance show, book launch and Farmers’ Market in the Glebe
The Ottawa REDBLACKS may be on a bye week, the Ottawa Fury may be away this weekend and just because the Ottawa 67’s are golfing doesn’t mean there’s nothing to do in the Glebe this weekend.
To kick things off, Canadian Eats is on now, and running until Canada Day. Come and see how our chefs in the Glebe put Canada on a plate. There are 38 participating restaurants serving everything from pulled pork poutine and maple carrot cake to pork shoulder, west coast salmon and much more. The inclusive menu, available here, features a truly Canuck selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts. Celebrate Canada Day through your taste buds.
Bookworms will unite at Octopus Books Thursday night when Dr. Cathy Martin launches her new book, Strengthening Canadian Indigenous Relationships and Decision-Making Processes. This book offers an appreciation of the different values experienced in Indigenous and non-Indigenous thinking and sets the foundation for reconciling differences between the two cultures in the workplace. The book launch kicks off at 7 p.m. Thursday night. Click here for details.
Get footloose Thursday night with Emilie Phaneuf and her Dance Show at the Glebe Community Centre. Enjoy an evening of dance – everything from Reggaeton, Hip Hop, Sass, Dancehall Funk, Street Dance and BPM. The night will also boast more than $2,000 in raffle prizes from local merchants.

Apples, apricots, beets, beans and blueberries. That’s just some of the fresh produce you’ll find at the Ottawa Farmers’ Market this Sunday at Lansdowne Park. The market runs every Sunday outside in the Aberdeen Square from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Fresh produce, artisan goods and hot food are waiting for you this Sunday. Click here for more details.
Once you’ve taken care of your Canada Day sunburn, head to Lansdowne Park next Wednesday for the first Lansdowne Movie Night under the stars. Grab a blanket, a lawn chair and some snacks and catch the sci-fi thriller The Martian on the Great Lawn. If it rains, the movie moves indoors at the Aberdeen Pavilion. Showtime is at dusk, around 8:30 p.m. Click here for details.
