Ottawa!! Hang onto your festival hats, summer is still here.
City Folk is Bluesfest's sister festival is slightly shorter (this year running September 13th - 17th) and a bit more mellow. What I love about City Folk is their inclusion of local artisans. This year you can have access to local businesses selling their wares at Aberdeen Pavillion (shout out to Adorit & La Fee des Bois).
If you're not into the price tag for the festivities, check out Marvest this September 15th & 16th). This is where you'll see Ottawa artists for FREE all along Bank St. For the full lineup, check out the website here. Check out Apt613's top pic review, Etoile Noire, for Marvest here.
As always I'll be reporting back with my musical and gluten free foodie finds at the festival.
Here are a few snaps from when I went during previous years.
