June 20 – June 30
Welcoming Ottawa Week includes 70+ events that will enable participants – newcomers and long-term residents alike – to express themselves and to connect through fun and engaging experiences that may produce lasting impressions and relationships.
The WOW Calendar of Events caters to many diverse interests – there is something for foodies, sports enthusiasts, and artists among us; but also for story tellers, film critics, community and social developers, and business executives.
This year’s WOW embraces Canada’s 150th anniversary and includes events that reflect on lesser known aspects of Canada’s history. For example, a series of twelve immigrant heritage walking tours will take participants on a journey of discovery to Chinatown, Little Italy, and Lowertown. Participants will discover the treasure trove of history, food, art, architecture, places of worship and the myriad of business that have flourished thanks to the hard work and creativity of successive cohorts of immigrants in these unique neighborhoods.
