Ottawa – Mayor Mark Sutcliffe will host the Mayor’s 20th Annual Christmas Celebration on Saturday, December 3 at Ottawa City Hall in support of the Ottawa Food Bank.

Date: Saturday, December 3

Time:  2 to 5 pm

Location: Ottawa City Hall, 110 Laurier Avenue West

Admission: donation to the Ottawa Food Bank

Celebrate the festive season in the fresh outdoors and visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus, who will arrive from the North Pole and be housed in their very own outdoor cabin. Sing carols, enjoy hot chocolate and roast marshmallows around a campfire. You can indulge in delicious BeaverTails for only $2, with all proceeds raised going directly to the Ottawa Food Bank! The fun continues inside with live entertainment in Jean Pigott Place.

The Mayor’s Annual Christmas Celebration is made possible by the generosity of the many corporate sponsors.

In the spirit of giving and to help those in need, admission to this sponsored event is a non-perishable food donation to the Ottawa Food Bank.

This is not a nut-free event. Dress for the weather as most activities will take place outside. 

The Chief Medical Officer of Health and Ottawa Public Health strongly recommend masking indoors.
