This weekend in Ottawa is pretty stacked. Dragon Boat Fest, Jazz Fest, and Escapade are all going down! Escapade has a new location at Landsdowne Park this year too.
The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario approved four downtown bars to serve alcohol until 4 AM this Saturday and Sunday nights. Normally they also require a letter of support from a municipality to make the approval, but not if the event in question is of “national or international significance.” They count Escapde Music Fest in that category.
Please also keep in mind the Barrymore’s and City At Night events will require a festival wristband to get in. Yes, even if you purchased an after party ticket.
The approved bars are:
- Great Canadian Cabin
- Plurr Night Club
- Barrymore’s Music Hall
- Liquor Store/Green Room
City Night club will also be serving till 4 AM but ONLY on Saturday night.
