NOKIA Sunday Bike Days
Gatineau Park and Rideau Canal, and the Ottawa River
Bring the entire family out to take advantage of the last cycling Sunday. Over 50 kilometres of parkways in the capital are open for cyclists, runners, walkers, and skaters.
We think this is a healthy and environmentally friendly way of enjoying the last long weekend of the summer.
Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival
August 31st - September 4th
Baie Park, Gatineau
On of our favourite events of the entire summer is Canada’s largest balloon festival at Baie Park. We know this event isn’t in Ottawa itself, however who wouldn’t want to see hot air balloons fill the sky!?
There will also free concerts, entertainments, and activities for your children to participate in.
Ottawa Champions Baseball
September 1st - 4th
Baie Park, Gatineau
We want a pitcher - not a belly itcher! Watch the last home game of the year this Labour Day long weekend. The Champions are playing the Rockland Boulders Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, so we are sure you and your family will be able to catch a game. For more details you can check out the schedule here.
Fall into Harvest
September 2nd, 3rd, 9th, 10th. 10am - 4pm.

Harvest is a busy time of year. Farmers faced many challenges getting their produce from field to market. This year at the Fall into Harvest festival try your hand at bartering, learn how to predict the weather, and go home with a harvest-themed bookmark.
