A Company of Fools returns to Windsor Park with the ever popular Torchlight Shakespeare Series – bringing Shakespeare to Ottawa parks all summer long! Now in its sixteenth year, this season’s Torchlight production is the farcical romantic comedy Twelfth Night – one of Shakespeare’s most beloved works.
Set out a lawn chair or a blanket as Bear & Co. brings you a summer outdoor touring production of Shakespeare’s ridiculously over-the-top Cymbeline. Follow a pair of lovers as they react to the mad world around them in a 90-minute version of the play Shakespeare packed with every plot device he could think of: star-crossed lovers, a wicked stepmother, a befuddled king, a loyal servant, separated siblings, wild men, exiled kin, cross-dressing, kidnapping, murder plots, and a Roman invasion.
The energy, the atmosphere, the live music – Oh My! In continuation to celebrate our big 4-0 at OSCA we wanted to up the ante with our annual art show. To make it a little bit bigger and concentrate on artists across our lovely city of Ottawa. If you joined us on June 17th, you would have seen 16 artist/creator vendors selling all different types of creations from hand-made jewelry to sand timers to glass creations to beautiful alcoholic base canvas art, to so much more! We even had a few Canterbury High School visual arts students selling their creations next to our food vendors: Yummy Cookies, Bombay Gardens Indian Food, and The Hot Potato Company.
The Summer weather is finally here! We are so excited to bring to you another free family friendly event for you to soak up the sun, enjoy some live music, eat some delicious food while you shop around buying local art and creations from Ottawa vendors.
The summer period is a great time to be catching up with neighbours and friends – and what is more fun than sharing music, food and laughter on the street. The Belmont Street Party has proven to be a great day outdoors for young and old. Read on to find out about this year's event!
