CIty Folk 2016

Ottawa is the City of Festivals and with summer wrapping, City Folk is right around the corner, with activities for all ages why not bring the whole family?

Here are just a few of the cool attractions to show the fam...

The  BSOMA KidZone is open from 1-6PM on Saturday and Sunday with family-friendly activities such as face painting, crafts, playing a variety of musical instruments & more. Enjoy these FREE activities with the kiddos.

Autograph Tent
Visit the Autograph Tent when you’re on site for each day’s schedule of artist autograph sessions. The Autograph tent is also near to the Merch Tent so you can pick up the latest CD and swag from your favourite acts as well. Don’t forget to bring your camera for some photo ops as well.

Located inside the Aberdeen Pavilion, lots of great local artists will participate this year. Have a peek at what they have to offer and support local businesses. Who knows, you may snag a Christmas gift of two.

All this make you hungry? Don’t worry, with all these amazing food vendors, you won’t know which one to pick!! Many vendors also provide gluten-free and vegan options as well.

As usual, City Folk is sporting a great line up (click here) this year, and a little something for the kids too.

Fred Penner himself will take the stage at 5:30 on Saturday and 3:00 on Sunday which has me just as excited as my daughter!! For ticket information click here. Children under 10 do not need a ticket when accompanied by a parent, however, please note, not all shows are suitable for all ages.

Don't forget to check out Marvest, it runs September 16th and 17th in The Glebe and businesses along Bank Street, showing off some of the local music talent and supporting our great City. Most Marvest shows are FREE! Saturday afternoon shows will be family friendly as well. For a full listing click here
