Calling all sweethearts – Join us from February 3 to February 20, 2017!
Winterlude is North America’s greatest annual celebration of winter. And, next year will be something else altogether. Because in 2017, Ottawa will host a year of celebrations marking 150 years of Confederation. Winterlude is going to be big, it’s going to be bold, it’s going to blow your mind. Your weekends in February will be filled with excitement and romance as the Capital celebrates Winterlude. Admire the beauty of ice sculptures at night when colourful lighting will bring them to life. Lace up your skates and glide through Ottawa on the world’s largest rink, the Rideau Canal Skateway. Then, warm up inside one of our many national museums followed by a romantic dinner at one of our notable restaurants, Signatures Restaurant at Le Cordon Bleu. Or pamper yourself and get cozy at one of our fantastic spas. Be here for Canada’s big year. Be here for Winterlude 2017!
