It’s time to say goodbye to the winter blues and see what the nation’s capital has to offer this time of year. Other than spring cleaning, here’s a list of things you and your friends can do this spring in Ottawa.

 

Your spring to-do list

Ottawa festivals

Festivals

Outdoor festivals don’t have to be reserved just for hot summers. Whether you’re a foodie or a florist, Ottawa offers a range of different festivals in the spring. Mark your calendars and give these festivals a go.

 

 

Plant Nite

Who knew sauvignon paired so nicely with succulents? With Plant Nite events at all of your favourite Ottawa hotspots, invite your friends, grab a drink, and create your own terrarium to take home. Reserve your spot—Plant Nites fill up fast.

Food Truck

Food trucks

Springtime is when food trucks slowly come out of garage hibernation. No matter what you’re craving, there’s probably a food truck somewhere in the city for you. Here are a few of Ottawa’s favourite food trucks.

Rooftop patios
