Tuesday, Mar 01, 2022 0


Shining the spotlight on the stories of its vibrant festivals, live music and performing arts, museums and galleries, Ottawa will focus on culture and inspiration in 2022. Here are a few projects to keep on the radar for this first half of the year:


Ottawa Black Film Festival (March 24 – 27, 2022) – Dedicated to giving unique voices in cinema the opportunity to present audiences with new ways of looking at the world, OBFF’s ambition is to encourage the development of the independent film industry and to promote more films on the reality of Black people around the globe.


The Sigwan (meaning “spring” in the Algonquin Anishinaabe language) Festival takes place March 25-27, 2022 at Mādahòkì Farm, which opened in the rural area of Ottawa in autumn 2021. This festival celebrates Indigenous traditions, including maple syrup making and other culinary delights, music and dancing, crafts, storytelling, a marketplace, and more.


Crave Food & Wine Festival (April 1-3, 2022): Ottawa’s new premier food and wine festival worthy of the Canadian capital’s cravings for good drinks, delicious bites and an unforgettable time. The festival’s goal is to bring together the culinary arts enthusiasts and local cuisine for a tasteful week of masterclasses and activities at participating restaurants, breweries and distilleries leading up a 3-day food and wine show at the Shaw Centre


The 70th edition of the iconic Canadian Tulip Festival takes place May 13-23, 2022. More than 250,000 tulips bloom in Commissioners Park along the Rideau Canal. The festival grew from an annual gift of tulips from the Dutch Royal Family in thanks for the role Canada played in the Liberation of the Netherlands and the fact that Ottawa provided a safe refuge for them during World War II.


The Escapade Music Festival returns to Ottawa June 24-26, 2022 with the best in electronic dance music. Catch Above & Beyond, deadmau5, DJ Snake, ILLENIUM, Kaskade, Martin Garrix, Tiësto, and more on the stage at Lansdowne Park.
