EACH BLOCK IS THEMED AND SPONSORED BY LOCAL BUSINESSES.
GLOWZONE

SLATER AT LAURIER

Music+light+art. This is the heart of the musical action. Festivalgoers can join friends at the Glow Bar for a drink before catching the main stage action. At midnight on both nights, you can join the silent disco and its army of electronica and dance music lovers who get their groove on after the neighbourhood is tucked up in bed. Click here for the schedule.

LEGACY

GLOUCESTER TO NEPEAN

If you think history is dusty old books and stories about ye old whatever, you haven’t experienced the Legacy block. Here, you can dig into Bank Street’s past and discover everything from character actors describing moments in Ottawa’s history to Lost Ottawa photos. Watch for Ottawa’s oddest old bylaw signs—no eating ice cream on Bank Street on Sunday— sample snow taffy from Temple Sugar Bush and spectacular sidewalk chalk art by Francois Pelletier.

KIDS’

Nepean to Lisgar to Cooper

What do you do with kids during a free street festival? You give them everything they want—and some stuff they didn’t know about. Sponsored by Hydro Ottawa and Bell Worldlynx, Kids’ Zone is a two-block fiesta of the senses for youth. Check out the travelling science and tech show, an interactive Lite-Brite board, Popscope telescope to view the stars at night, bucket truck rides, Ray’s Reptiles, the Panadream Theatre and buskers. Not enough? Fine. There IS more. Stay tuned.

Amidst all the light and music and marvels of Glowfair sits Glowfit, a fitness and activity block geared towards those who love to move and shake it.

GILMOUR TO JAMES

Is there anything better than looking at art unfold in front of your eyes? We don’t think so, either. That’s what the Art Chaos block is all about: a mash up outdoor art gallery featuring local artists, a collaborative community art piece, and Vivid Theory art installation. At the south end of Bank Street, this is the southern gateway entrance to Glowfair.
