Rideau Hall

Rideau Hall (1 Sussex Drive), around a 10-minute drive from Parkdale Apartments, is a great place to get to know during the winter. In addition to a skating rink that is open on the weekends, Rideau Hall will host its annual Winter Celebration on January 16th from 12:30 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. This event is an excellent way to experience Nordic sports and traditions with friends and family alike.

Winter Brewfest

After a successful first year, Winter Brewfest is returning to Ottawa. This adult festival features beers from across Ontario and Quebec, as well as food prepared by some of the area’s top chefs. Brewfest will run from February 12th through the 13th in the Horticulture building and Lansdowne Park (450 Queen Elizabeth Drive), less than a 15-minute drive from Parkdale Apartments.

Winter Frolic

Discover what a Pioneer winter was like at Winter Frolic, happening this season at the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum (901 Prince of Wales Drive). Winter Frolic is a family-friendly experience that includes demonstrations, hands-on crafts and an educational tour of the ins and outs of a Pioneer homestead.
