Fall has come to Ottawa

September 11, 2020

Fall is such a quick season, but it's jam packed with exciting events in our nation's capital. Take a look below at great activities in and around Ottawa over the coming months! Please always reference the websites or social media accounts of each attraction or business for more detailed information, as circumstances can change at any time. And consult the visit Ottawa safely page for information on the most recent COVID-19 regulations.

The Canadian Museum of Nature re-opened its doors on September 5th! This fun-filled museum close to Lowertown has some new rules for visiting, so make sure you check them out before planning your trip. Enjoy their new exhibition, Planet Ice: Mysteries of the Ice Ages until January 3rd. This is the perfect indoor activity for those chilly fall days.

This 5th edition of the event invites Ottawa dog owners to experience ByWard Market’s dog-friendly businesses. Get pup-cakes from the Cupcake Lounge, find dog themed crafts at Papier Papier, or check out the pup-up shops,  dog rescues, live art demos and so much more!

If you prefer exploring at your own pace you'll enjoy the many self-guided experiences available in Ottawa. Whether you’re into film, cycling, scavenger hunts, art, or nature, you’ll love discovering Canada's Capital.

Take in Ottawa's beauty by visiting the Garden Promenade taking a nature walk, or discovering Ottawa's vibrant arts scene.

The fall season brings a coveted selection of treats and beverages to cafes and restaurants across Ottawa. Here are just a few of the delicious items you can find in the city:

Ottawa's famous BeaverTails offers a special PumpkinTail, which is topped with pumpkin pie filling, cinnamon and whipped cream.

Make a stop at French bakery Moulin de Provence for their classic shortbread cookies. In the fall they come in themed shapes such as pumpkin and maple leaves!

Visit Moo Shu Ice Cream to see what special flavours they’ve created based on holidays such as the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival and Thanksgiving. 

I hope you're inspired by this list when planning your fall activities in Ottawa. While the season is short, it's rich with celebration and activity.
