The Main Event 2016

Announcing Paddling Access on the Rideau Canal

MAY 10: It was a beautiful morning on the Rideau Canal as Catherine McKenna MP announced new paddle access points on the Rideau Canal in the Glebe at Patterson Creek and in Old Ottawa East at Clegg. After a brief announcement McKenna paddled to Parliament Hill in her canoe, leading members of the Glebe and Old Ottawa East communities and Rideau Canoe Club in a flotilla. Follow the link for the full story in pictures.

Summer Camp registration is OPEN!

CAG Summer Camp registration is open now. Register soon as some camps are close to full. Note this year, due to interest expressed from the community, we have a camp running the last week in June to accommodate families attending the French board schools. All camps (with the exception of Half Day Activity Camp which we have just opened) as advertised here have reached minimum numbers and are guaranteed to run. Extra spaces have been opened in Canoe Kids camps due to high demand.

Calling all Vendors - The Main Event Market Sale!

A market sale will run once again alongside the Main Event Community Party on June 18, from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., at Brantwood Park. Due to Main Street reconstruction, the Main Farmers Market is relocated for a while and we want to bring the market vibe to The Main Event! We will welcome participation from artists, crafters and food vendors, - anything that would be part of a regular farmers market.
