Ottawa Greek Fest,  August 5-15

The Ottawa Greek Festival (GreekFest) was first held on August 15, 1975 to commemorate the namesake of our Church – the Dormition of the Virgin Mary.

Back then, the festival ran for only one day and was organized for the members of the Hellenic Community of Ottawa and their families.

Over time, the Hellenic Community of Ottawa grew and so did the appetite and interest of local residents. GreekFest eventually became the 11 day event it is today, and one of the premiere Greek Festivals in North America, with visitors from around the world.

GreekFest’s success would not be possible were it not for our dedicated and passionate volunteers that have made the event into what it is today.

We celebrate our culture with this special event and invite all of you to join us to ‘Live a Day the Greek Way!

The Capital Fair, August 12-21

Back in 1975, to help promote the growing sense of community pride, the City of Gloucester, created the “Gloucester Festival of Friends”.   The summer-time event became a volunteer driven program and then applied for and was granted Ontario Agricultural status by Minister of Agriculture, Dennis Timbrell on November 27, 1984, creating the Gloucester Fair.

The Fair drew great crowds to the original fairgrounds at the Earl Armstrong Arena but that success caused it to eventually outgrow the site.  Searching for a larger space, the Fair was invited to the Rideau Carleton Entertainment Centre where it has flourished since 1998.

For 10 fabulous days in August, there’s a lot to see and do at the Capital Fair.

Now, the Capital Fair is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the region. The fair attracts upwards of 100,000 guests annually.
