Weekend What’s Up: Fury, food, film festival and fun all in the Glebe

June 13, 2019 | by glebeadmin


Movie buffs, footy fans and food lovers will find more than enough to keep them busy this weekend in the Glebe, as the neighbourhood will be buzzing with activity from Thursday to Tuesday.

It all starts early with the Ottawa Indian Film Festival Awards that are taking over the Aberdeen Square at Lansdowne from Thursday to Saturday.  Movie fans can take in a number of films at Cineplex Cinemas at Lansdowne and also meet film directors and take part in cultural activities in the Aberdeen Square. Emerging filmmakers can even take part in a Masterclass with acclaimed director Tigmanshu Dhulia. Tickets are just $15. Click here for more information and showtimes.

Sip, swallow, bite, taste and gulp. That’s what you’ll be doing at GNAG’s Beer & Bites Thursday night, a four-course social event that showcases four beers of a variety of styles. Your meal will be freshly prepared with local ingredients and each course is matched by a specially selected beer whose flavours compliment the food. The food and beer celebration runs from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Glebe Community Centre. Tickets are $70. Click here for details.

In case you haven’t heard, the Ottawa Fury FC are unbeaten in their last seven games. You’ll want to catch this team while they’re red hot and how perfect is it that Memphis blows into town for a mid-season dustup this Saturday? The Fury are currently in 7th place in the Eastern Conference, but a win could push them up as high as second place. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. Cheer on the Fury as they climb their way to the top of the USL standings. Click here for tickets. 

Also, on Saturday, help student entrepreneurs raise money and awareness for multiple sclerosis at their fundraising car wash at the Glebe Centre beginning at noon. These students all run their own business in summer months to fund their post-secondary studies. Help them raise money for a good cause this Saturday. Click here for details.

Rhubarb pie, anyone? You can score fresh rhubarb and scores of other local produce at the Ottawa Farmers’ Market this, and every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Peas, beets and lettuce are all in season. Click here for more details on the Ottawa Farmers’ Market.

Responsible Investments? Yes, please. Join Desjardins Insurance for a seminar Sunday on innovative responsible investment products that can help you reach your financial goals. The workshop runs from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. at the Glebe Community Centre. Click here for more information.

Full Moon Yoga is back at Lansdowne Park Monday night on the Great Lawn from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. Rama Lotus Yoga Centre and the City of Ottawa are teaming up for another season of free outdoor yoga. Full Moon Yoga will run once a month on June 17, July 16, August 15 and Sept. 14. Click here for details.

Another amazing weekend in the Glebe. See you this weekend!
