Weekend What’s up: Trevor Noah, 67’s and Great Canadian Kilt Skate in the Glebe

January 24, 2019 | by glebeadmin


There’s a lot to laugh about in the Glebe this weekend.

Once you’ve gotten over the pain of snowmageddon that dropped on all of us yesterday, you may want to start digging yourself out of your snowed-in cave to take in some weekend event that you won’t want to hibernate through.

From a premier comedy show to Scottish ice skaters, the Glebe has you covered for a fun winter weekend.

It all kicks off Friday at TD Place Arena when host of The Daily Show Trevor Noah shows up for a night of but-gusting humour. It’s Noah’s first-ever visit to Ottawa and he’s set to make sure everyone in attendance leaves in stitches. Tickets are still available for the Friday show. Click here for more information.

Bare knees and ice? Sounds like my kind of party. The Great Canadian Kilt Skate will take over the Lansdowne Skating Court on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. All kilt -wearers are welcome. Don your tartan, kilt and lace up your skates for a fun day on the ice. Oh, and for traditional kilt wearers, we really hope you don’t fall. Click here for information.

Following the Kilt Skate, head over to TD Place to watch the Ottawa 67’s take on the Oshawa Generals. The league-leading Ottawa 67’s hope to continue their dominance as we head towards the push for playoffs. Puck drop is at 3:30 p.m. at TD Place Arena. Click here for tickets. The 67’s also take on the Saginaw Spirit Sunday at 2 p.m. at TD Place Arena. Click here for tickets to Sunday’s game.

Sunday also features the Ottawa Winter Farmers’ Market inside the Aberdeen Pavilion. Browse local grains, goods and gadgets from some of Ottawa’s finest producers, inventors and artisans. The market runs every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Click here for more information.

Jazz cats can also head to Industria Pizzeria and Bar for free live jazz on Sunday from 4 to 7 p.m. The weekly jams feature a rotating roster of local jazz bands. Jazz at Industria is on every Sunday at Lansdowne Park. Click here for information.
