Each show features our special guests: the RCMP Pipes, Drums and Dancers, Capital Cowgirls and the Ottawa Valley Search and Rescue Dogs Association. The show ends with a performance by the world-famous Musical Ride!

Admission to this family-friendly event is free. Bring a lawn chair or blanket to enjoy the show!

Giving back to the community

On July 1 and 2, non-perishable food and cash donations will be collected to support the Ottawa Food Bank. We’re asking spectators to help us “Cram the Carriage” with the goal of filling an entire horse-drawn carriage by the end of the 2nd.  On July 3, the Ukrainian Canadian Congress will collect donations to support displaced Ukrainian families in Ottawa.
