Ottawa Chinatown will be a melting pot of cultural foods from your local favorites to out-of-town vendors, and  loads of street pedlars that will bring the most exotic experience to Ottawa. 

This three-day event will also feature a wide variety of non-stop multicultural performances, such as dragon and lion dance, live music, martial arts, and instrument performances many have not seen before! 

Ottawa Chinatown is genuinely a Multicultural Village with an Asian Flavour, Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai, Mexican, Indian, Korean, Japanese, middle-eastern, Canadian, Brazilian… the list goes very long. 

Come out with your family and friends, and enjoy a unique selection of street vendors and entertainment this weekend in our very own Chinatown!
