I have reached out to many arts and cultural groups (music, art, dance and theatre) in the Western Ottawa area of Kanata, Stittsville, West-Carleton-March and Goulbourn to create a guide listing all local groups in our area. If you know of any local groups (it can be a community group or one sponsored by a church or school) please contact my office to have it featured in the booklet for 2017. The goal is to tell residents about all of the wonderful groups in our area and the entertainment they bring to us. Then, on May 27, 2017 many of these groups will come together to hold the First Kanata-Carlton Cultural Festival celebrating Canada’s 150th Anniversary (details to come later)! To be included in the booklet, please send me your information by November 15th, as we don’t want to leave anyone out.
