613 DAY: June 13, 2019


613 Day is a one day, open source festival designed to celebrate the people, communities and organizations that make Ottawa special.

613 Day is a city-wide pseudo civic holiday observed by Ottawans—a day that celebrates diversity, inclusion, and participation. All residents of the 613 are encouraged to celebrate; attend an event, host a BBQ, stop by your favourite local shop or restaurant, blast your favourite local band on your commute home….

Past years have seen courtyard concerts at Mugshots hosted by Ottawa Showbox, street parties and performances at Bar Robo, and rooftop BBQs at Jackpine.

Let us know how you’re planning to celebrate, and if you have a public event to share!
