"Sports, art,  movies, music and food.

It’s another perfect weekend in the Glebe, whether you’re a sports fan, a movie buff, an art lover or anything in between, as there truly is a little bit of everything happening over the next few days.

Your weekend kicks off early, literally, when the Ottawa REDBLACKS take on the Calgary Stampeders at TD Place Thursday night. The REDBLACKS are coming off two back-to-back losses, including an embarrassing 31-1 loss to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers last week. But the REDBLACKS beat the Stampeders in their season opener in Week 1 32-28, so you can be certain they’ll be feeding off that win. REDBLACKS pivot Jonathan Jennings will start tonight’s game. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. Click here for tickets.

On Friday night, you can spend an evening with artist Angelina McCormick at Studio Sixty Six during their Friday Art Social. McCormick’s work is currently on display at the gallery for its present exhibition “thrēo”. Enjoy beverages and hors d’oeuvres between 5 and 7 p.m. Click here for details.

On Saturday night, grab a blanket, a lawn chair and a bowl of popcorn and camp out on the Great Lawn for the Lansdowne Movie Nights. This week’s movie is Paddington 2. Showtime is at dusk, approximately around 8:30 p.m. These movie nights are all free. Click here for details and showtimes.

Sunday is a busy one at Lansdowne Park. Kick your day off at the Ottawa Farmers’ Market and score some fresh produce. Blueberries, broccoli, cherries, cauliflower and more are in season this month at the market. Plus, you can browse artisan goods, gifts and trinkets. The market runs every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Click here for details.

Sunday afternoon, you can catch some live jazz at Industria Pizzeria and Bar. Every week, a rotating roster of local jazz cats will play from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Click here for more information.

The music continues Sunday evening at Lansdowne Park with The Summer Arts Showcase in the Aberdeen Square. This week you can catch Fiddlehead Soup and their blend of world, folk, fiddle, Celtic and Medieval music. The music starts at 6:30 and finishes around 8 p.m. Click here for information.

It’s another rocking weekend in the Glebe. Come down early, stay late and have fun!
