Claridge Homes is thrilled to be sponsoring a stage at Ottawa’s RBC Bluesfest once again this year. There might not be a lot of blues left at this year’s festival, but hip-hoppers, rock n’ rollers, and country-folk alike will find something to love on the Claridge Homes Stage. As Ottawa’s premier home and condominium builder, we’ve helped lead the revitalization of LeBreton Flats, and we welcome the opportunity to give back to our city by helping to bring one of the country’s largest summer music festivals to downtown Ottawa. Bluesfest runs from July 7th to 17th - come visit us at our stage at LeBreton Flats just next to Booth Street!
LeBreton Flats will soon become the centre of an exciting new development in Ottawa’s history, but in the summer it is already the centre of this great festival, by far the most exciting event in the city all year. For Ottawa music, live entertainment, and just plain good fun, Bluesfest is always THE go-to event of festival season. Over 70 local artists perform at Ottawa Bluesfest annually, making it a truly exceptional avenue for bringing world class acts to Ottawa and promoting homegrown talent by putting Ottawa’s musicians (literally) on the big stage. Not only that, the event puts on a 2-week course, “Blues in the Schools”, pairing artists and educators from outside Ottawa with local school-age musicians to help promote and preserve the blues tradition. So when you make the trip from your home to see an exceptional show at LeBreton Flats, know that you are also doing your part to strengthen the arts and music culture of our city, now and for the next generation.
In addition to sponsoring Bluesfest, Claridge has been a leader in the redevelopment of LeBreton Flats by bringing Fusion to the neighbourhood. You’ll never feel like you’re missing out at Fusion. You’ll have a front row seat for events like Bluesfest, you’re within walking distance of the War Museum, Parliament, and Old Hull, and you’ll be part of the forthcoming transformation of the Flats into Ottawa’s premier sports and entertainment district. Feel like you’re at the heart of it all: check out some of the great units, available now at Claridge Fusion.
