Welcome to Italian Week Ottawa 2015


Italian Week Ottawa, now in its 40th year, celebrates the rich diversity of our Italian-Canadian community, our heritage of culture, food, music, poetry and the vibrant passions of its people.  Plans are well underway for this city’s most anticipated festival.

Come to Little Italy!  Dance under the stars, share in our gastronomic delights while attending the Assaggi, highlighting the delicious and varied regional cuisine of Italy. Cruise along the Ottawa River and see some historical sites, attend the St. Anthony’s Church procession, now in its 100th year and enjoy some beautiful fireworks lighting up the evening sky.
