What’s happening in Ottawa

Music in the Park

Ottawa’s free concert series, Music in the Park, kicks off its 2024 season in late June with musical acts delivering a delightful blend of retro rock, country and contemporary that’ll carry audiences on a music journey from the ‘50s to the present.

Concerts run from 6-8p.m. on Saturdays in downtown’s historic Washington Park.  Admission is free.

In the event of bad weather the concert will be cancelled.

Embrace Ottawa’s small-town charm: bring a lawn chair, spread a blanket on the grass, or settle on one of the park benches to listen. We’ll bet you can’t stop tapping your toes to the beat, clapping in time, or breaking into a spontaneous dance step under the trees!

Music in the Park concerts will be from 6-8 p.m.

September concerts will be from 5-7 p.m.
