The Tulip Festival has come and gone. Bluesfest is in the rear view mirror. Hope Volleyball is in the past. But festival season has most definitely not ended in Ottawa. Not yet!
In the final days of summer, the National Capital will host one of the biggest festivals on its annual calendar in CityFolk, and incredible four-day festival featuring amazing music, lots of great activities, and of course, plenty of food and beer. The festival, which specializes in folk, rock and country music, dates all the way back to 1993. This year, it runs from September 12-16 at beautiful Lansdowne Park in the Glebe, along the Rideau Canal.
This year, some of the biggest names on the festival’s stacked lineup of concerts include Hozier, Michael McDonald (of The Doobie Brothers), The Trews (playing an acoustic set), The Decemberists, Ani DiFranco, Trampled By Turtles and Ben Caplan. That being said, the lineup features dozens of other artists, so those acts certainly aren’t the only reasons to attend.
Another key feature of CityFolk is a subsidiary concert series called Marvest, which will feature many other additional performers representing a range of genres and sounds. These concerts go down off the Lansdowne Park grounds at awesome venues and bars throughout the city.
If you’re interested in checking out CityFolk for yourself, simply visit the festival’s official website. Tickets and passes can be purchased on the site, and both are awesomely affordable.
And of course, there’s no reason to let your night end once your concert wraps up. If you want to keep the party going after a night out at CityFolk, simply head to our website, order your favorite beer, wine, or spirit, and we’ll deliver it right to your door.
Have fun, Ottawa!
