Weekend What's Up - July 22nd to 24th

Here at Ottawa Life, we’re always looking for fun events that our city offers each weekend. Here is what the city has in store for you this July 22-46. See you there!

Paint Therapy - July 24th, Parliament Hill 


Got a creative side? Feel like expressing it? There's no better place to pick up a paintbrush than on Parliament hill this Sunday, where you can be a part of raising awareness of Paint Therapy for Mental Health. The Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health is providing everything you'll need to paint — all you need to do is show up! Even though the event is free, you have a chance to donate here. All proceeds go to the Do If For Daren foundation. Don't forget to share pics of your paintings on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook with the hashtag #painttherapyottawa.

Ottawa Chamberfest - July 21st - August 3rd 


As we all know, Ottawa loves its festivals. But no other fest comes with Chamberfest's class. Chamberfest is a collection of concerts spread out around the city. For the full (and very cool) schedule, check out their website and see what concerts you could be going to this weekend — Hear Syrene Saxofoonkwartet, the all-female saxophone quartet, play ragtime outside the National Art Gallery on Saturday afternoon, or go see a Sunday morning Flute Quintet perform in the Beechwood cemetery. You can buy single tickets or a festival passport to get your fill of classical charm. 

5K Foam Fest - July 23rd, Ski Edelweiss


Ever heard of a mud run? This Saturday join in on the messiest obstacle course you'll ever do. You can sign up to run as an individual, or with your family, coworkers, and friends as a team, or just come to cheer your friends on! The obstacles are challenging but doable. You're guaranteed foam, mud, and water, though, so be prepared to get dirty. And don't worry - there are staff and volunteers scattered throughout ready to intervene if things get dangerous. They recommend the usual kind of training you'd do for a 5K run, but maybe practice being sprayed by a garden hose first. For more information, and to sign up visit their website here.

Free QuietClubbing Beach Party - July 22nd, Mooney's Bay 


Looking for a fun Friday? Starting at 7pm QuietClubbing is hosting a beach party at Mooney's Bay! The best part? It's FREE. Head over and watch the sun go down as you dance to competing DJs. Your glow-in-the-dark headsets let you change between 3 channels, so you can pick which DJ you listen to. So join Quiet Clubbing Canada at Baja Burger Shack in Mooney's Bay and you and your friends can have a (quietly) epic night.

Free Outdoor Screening of 'The Martian' - July 22nd, Dundonald Park


Presented by the Public Service Alliance of Canada, Centretown Movies is putting on The Martian for anyone who feels like watching an epic space movie under the stars. Like all Centretown's screenings, the movie will start at 9pm. Its free and its fun for the whole family. Whether you missed your chance to see it in theatres, you loved it so much that you want to see it again, or you just want to spend your Friday night doing something, relaxed, fun, and summery, come down to Dundonald Park and make the most of the warm weather while its still here!
