January 15th to 17th
Here at Ottawa Life we are always looking out for great things to do on a weekend! Check out some of the events that are happening right here in our city this weekend.
TD Place Stadium, Ottawa 67’s vs. Niagara IceDogs – Jan.15th (7:00pm)
This Friday, come support your local OHL hockey team at the TD Place Stadium. This match between the Ottawa 67’s and the Niagara IceDogs should be a very intense one. Both teams are currently ranked second in their divisions which will make for an interesting match. Tickets are on sale here.
National Arts Centre, WolfGANG – Jan. 16th (9:00pm)
This certainly isn’t your grandparent’s classical music session. Mercury Lounge and the NAC present THE WolfGANG Sessions, a mix between old and new. WolfGANG mixes contemporary music and indie classical with collaborations between the NAC Orchestra, and adds a touch of flair with video projection and DJs. Scoop up your tickets here.
Wall Space Gallery, The Great Escape – Jan. 16th
We find nothing more romantic than spending a weekend in an art gallery. Why not escape from the cold weather this weekend and admire the vivacious paintings of West-Coast artist Erica Hawkes and Toronto-based artist Laura Culic. Both artists provide a refreshing and unique take on landscapes.
Flapjacks, Kitchen Party – Jan. 16th (10:00pm)
Have you ever been to a Kitchen party before? If not, it probably isn’t what your thinking of. We guarantee that the Flapjacks Kitchen Party on Preston St. won’t involve any dirty dishes for you to clean. Kitchen Party was founded by two DJs in 2011 and has been a big hit ever since. This party includes the best of funk, disco, hip hop, techno and everything in between. It’s a party you do not want to miss.
National Art Gallery, Art Moves Me – Jan. 17th (11:00am – 4:00pm)
Family Sundays at the National Gallery of Canada is the place to be! Catch an all-ages dance performance and workshop this Sunday by Luv2Groove. Then, release your inner artist with some dancing puppet making. Songs, stories, sensory-based play is also available for kiddos ages 0-2, and those ages 3-12 can catch a gallery tour that begs the question: can art move?
