Summer in Montreal can get pretty repetitive, especially if you've been living here your whole life. Luckily for us, we just so happen to live a short drive away from Canada's scenic capital which is home to several world-class music and art festivals.
As the weather warms up, start planning a road trip to Ottawa with your best friends! There's lots to see and do, especially in the summer, but nothing quite compares to the city’s Glowfair.
Every year, Glowfair brings new performers and activities to animate Ottawa’s downtown core. At this year's free event, you can expect: two stages where live bands and DJ’s will be performing all weekend long; a synthetic ice skating rink; glow in the dark yoga; an Escape Manor experience; silent disco; street art and performances; 10 unique theme blocks to explore, and so much more. You can check out their artist line-up here!
This festival will be unlike any other in Ottawa. Glowfair is an explosion of the senses, a luminescent landscape that brings thousands of people together to celebrate art, light, and music. Each block will take you on a journey from an enchanted glow forest, to the energy zone and of course to a Canadianna block which will celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary, and more!
From the wildly popular ‘glow yoga’ and ‘silent disco’, to the hottest bands, and illuminating installations and décor, you’re sure to find a block that suits you. Glowfair 2017 will transport you to an Ottawa you never knew existed—for free.
Glowfair is a block party like you’ve never experienced in the heart of the Nation’s Capital. Completely free to attend with loads of installations situated throughout the neighbourhood that are sure to make your Instagram pop this summer.
If you’re thinking of driving down to Ottawa for this years Glowfair (and you should), Bank street is located within a short walk from any downtown area hotel.
So guys, If Montreal just simply isn't doing it for you this summer, then you definitely need to grab your bestie and road trip to Ottawa for the Glowfair Festival.
