Festivals strategy

Ottawa Tourism and the Ottawa Festival Network are collaborating on the recommendations of a Festivals Strategy completed in late 2018. The goal is to improve cooperation between all players in the local tourism and festival promotion role and the local festival industry on initiatives that support destination marketing, capacity building in the festivals sector, and development of the visitor experience.

To execute elements of this Strategy, Ottawa Tourism is working with the Ottawa Festival Network—a trusted partner in the development of Ottawa’s strength and capacity as a festival-rich destination.

Ottawa Tourism and the Ottawa Festival Network will continue to work collaboratively where our mandates align to support a healthy festival community.
