Hintonburg is Happening

Ottawa has experienced a long and chilly winter to say the least, but the snow is finally melting and patches of grass are beginning to show. This can only mean one thing! It’s time for the second annual Hintonburg Happening!

The nine day talk-worthy event is back! Last year the festival proved itself to be perhaps one of Ottawa's best kept secrets. This uniquely entertaining event is appealing to people from all parts of Ottawa, as it showcases the heart of what makes the Hintonburg area special.

Beginning May 1 and continuing through to May 9, the Hintonburg community welcomes everyone to gather in Wellington West to celebrate in a variety of ways, demonstrating the authentic vibe that this area quietly encompasses.

Expect nothing less than the streets to be brimming with quality art, live music, bitingly tasteful foods and stellar interactive performances, all of which will be centered in the streets surrounded by some of Ottawa's most chic businesses.

Located at Island Park Drive and continuing on to the O-Train Bridge, there is guaranteed to be something new and inspiring for everyone.

Whether it's your second time-around attending the event and have been looking forward to it for weeks, are coming to scope out what all of the hype is about or are finally taking the time to check out that curious looking boutique you've been eyeballing for sometime now, this is for sure something you'll want to attend.

This year’s festival promises to be even more engaging and enticing by showcasing the neighbourhood's true individuality and, at the same time, raising awareness and funds for local art initiatives.

Look forward to the air bands, open pottery studio time, brunch, barbeques, kidzones, artist talks and tons of art on display.

Taking part in all of the action are businesses such as Twiss & Weber, Fab Baby Gear, Victoire, Clothes by Muriel Dombret, Oresta, Flock, Wabi Sabi and more! Additionally, this event is supported and sponsored by Tamarack Homes, the Wellington West BIA, Hintonburg Public House, Beaus Brewery and Character Creative.

Hintonburg has certainly proven itself to be a real gem. Now, let the festivities begin!
