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. 

The fourth annual Glowfair will take place on June 16th and 17th along Ottawa’s bustling Bank Street. Ten city blocks, from Slater to James street will be closed to vehicle traffic in order to open up an enchanted world of music, art, and light. For two days and nights, Glowfair transforms Ottawa’s downtown retail district into a non-stop festival of cutting-edge art, music and street performances. For FREE

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!

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. 

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.
