As a four-seasoned city, Ottawans know how to embrace and make the most out of every season – and of course, that includes the fall time. In fact, it’s one of the best times of year to explore and enjoy the city! Here are our top 5 fall adventures happening in Ottawa 2019.
Embrace your zombie love while running from the dead at the annual Zombie Run that’s happening October 5th. If you love heart-pounding terror, grab your bravest and fastest friends to dash through a 2.5 km corn maze that’s filled with terrifying zombies. There’s no better time to practice your survival skills than now! Takes place at the Proulx Berry Farm.
If you’re looking for a day filled with classic fair favourites, the rural annual Metcalfe Fair is a must. You can bring out the entire family for a fun-filled day of country staples, like tractor pulls, live music, a classic car, and hot rod show, a fashion show, a Kidzland tent, and even a demolition derby! It’s the best way to spend the weekend with so many things to keep the family entertained. Takes place October 3rd and runs through the weekend.
When the temperature starts to cool off outside, there’s no better way to keep warm than at the Whisky Ottawa fest. This local favourite offers masterclasses from some of the world’s best brand ambassadors. You can also enjoy a night of whisky hosted at the Grand Tasting Hall in the Canadian War Museum with multiple vendors, eating contests, live tunes and much more. Begins on October 4th through 6th. Be sure to get your tickets early before they sell out!
Hike in Gatineau
Though not in Ottawa, Gatineau Park is only a stone’s throw away and is always worth a visit in October. Bring a friend or two to spend the day among the dazzling array of fall foliage throughout the area. It’s truly a spectacular setting to enjoy in the fall and one we always recommended.
Pig Out at Mac n’ Cheese Fest
Dig into some of the best mac and cheese in the city at the Mac n Cheese Fest! You can enjoy so many different combinations and unique takes on this hearty and delicious Canadian classic. All of this is happening at city hall from Oct 4-6th and it’s free to enter!
