River Ward Festivals 2017

River Ward hosts more festivals and special events than any other ward in Ottawa, outside of the downtown core. We are a vibrant community that is blessed with green space and the Rideau River. It is a natural attraction to many organizations to host their event within our community. These spring and summer festivals and events are a prime opportunity to showcase the City’s various cultural, religious, and sporting events within our community.
