Summer Events in Ottawa

There is a lot happening in Ottawa this summer so plan your visit early.  Stay in our comfortable bed and breakfast where you will enjoy a restful sleep and a fabulous breakfast  before you head out for a full day.  Here of some of the events to check out:

The Sound and Light show on Parliament Hill has always been a big favourite with visitors.  This year there is a new production “Northern Lights”.  Don’t miss this free, bilingual show which will be on nightly from July10th to September 12th. 


The ottawabluesfest.ca is the closest event to Albert House Inn.  Only a ten minute walk,  the festival takes place at Lebreton Flats and is always a great time with some big headliners including Keith Urban and the ever popular Blue Rodeo.  This takes place July 8 to the 19th.  Get your tickets early.


Canada Day July 1 is of course the big show every year.  Come out and enjoy the Changing the Guard ceremony, the famous Snowbirds, live entertainment and of course the fireworks!


The Changing the Guard Ceremony on Parliament Hill takes place daily at 10 a.m.  from June 28 to August 22, 2015.


What began as a weekend of outdoor jazz in Major’s Hill Park back in 1980, the ottawajazzfestival.com has evolved into one of the National Capital Region’s most highly anticipated musical events of the summer.  The open stage main site is at Confederation Park, only about a 10 minute from Albert House Inn and other more intimate venues are located throughout the downtown core.


Now all you need to do is reserve your room at our bed and breakfast and  choose which events you would like to see.  We look forward to welcoming you this summer to Albert House Inn.  Remember, we are very centrally located in the heart of downtown Ottawa and you can walk to all of these exciting events.  What are you waiting for?
