Weekend What’s Up: DJ Skate Night, Art Show and Live Jazz in the Glebe
Just because the Ottawa 67’s are on the road and the REDBLACKS and Fury are in their offseasons doesn’t mean there isn’t much to do in the Glebe this weekend.
From art shows and jazz nights to a DJ Skate Night for the ages, you’ll find something to entertain the whole family this weekend without barely leaving your back yard.
The place to be Friday night is at Studio Sixty Six, as the Bank Street gallery is hosting an opening reception for its new show, Land & Memory kicking off at 6 p.m. The new contemporary landscape photography and painting show features artists Leslie Hossack, Christine Fitzgerald, Manon Labrosse, Troy Moth, Patrice Stanley and Rémi Thériault. The show runs until March 3 at Studio Sixty Six. Click here for more information.
If you’re looking to strap on the skates, but don’t want to wind down the Rideau Canal against a windchill of -23 C, then head to the Arena at TD Place for the DJ Skate Night Friday night. Slice your way up and down the ice as a live DJ drops hits from every era to keep you moving. Tickets are only $5. The skate night runs from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Click here for tickets.
On Sunday, browse local goods, grains and artisan treasures at the Ottawa Farmers Market inside the Aberdeen Pavilion from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Farmers’ Market is Ottawa’s only year-round producer-only farmers market in the city – and it’s right here at Lansdowne every Sunday.

While you’re at Lansdowne Sunday, head over the Industria where you can hear free live jazz from 4 to 7 p.m. The Lansdowne eatery features a rotating roster of local jazz vocalists and bands. Click here for more information.
