Ottawa Antique & Vintage Market

One hundred and ten exhibitors means 110 different cities, towns and villages across Ontario and Quebec where professional vintage sleuths follow the trail of hidden vintage treasures. The fruits of their labour will be on display (and up for grabs) at Ottawa’s biggest antique and vintage events – the Ottawa Antique & Vintage Market (October 20th, 10am-5pm and October 21st, 10am-4pm) and the Ottawa Vintage Clothing Show (Sun. November 4th, 10am-5pm) – both held at Carleton University’s Fieldhouse (Bronson Ave. and Sunnyside Ave).
Antique fans can browse through stalls on the 40,000 sq./ft show floor at the Ottawa Antique & Vintage Market where they’ll find everything from hand-picked Bohemian and Industrial style furnishings to vintage farmhouse home-wares to classic cottage and lodge furniture. For those who want to add some glamour to the upcoming holiday season, a huge selection of Sherman jewelry, known for it’s hundred thousand watt glitter, will be available.
Show Manager Catherine Knoll says the show keeps getting more popular every year because “people just know that it’s a pretty rare opportunity to check out seventy truckloads of vintage, antique and retro items close to downtown Ottawa. The show offers literally tens of thousands of items to folks who prefer authentic to ersatz”.

Ottawa Vintage Clothing Show

The Ottawa Vintage Clothing Show is Ottawa’s largest sale of vintage clothing, accessories, jewelry and designer vintage. The event is known for both the quality of the vintage clothing as well as the sheer quantity that appears on the show floor. The event attracts the crème de la crème of vintage clothing retailers who will offer everything from gorgeous vintage bridal dresses, to vintage Chanel handbags to swinging sixties jewelry.
Manager Knoll says “Some people used to think that the event was all about “dressing up” in vintage fashion – but after fourteen shows, consumers know that they will find amazing vintage garments to compliment their everyday fashion style. Searching through the inventory of vintage retailers from Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa is also just a lot of fun!”

Broadway Across Canada presents The King and I

Two worlds collide in the Lincoln Center Theater production of this “breathtaking and exquisite”

(The New York Times) musical, directed by Bartlett Sher. One of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s finest works, THE KING AND I boasts a score that features such beloved classics as “Getting To Know You,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Hello Young Lovers,” “Shall We Dance” and “Something Wonderful.”

Set in 1860’s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna Leonowens, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children. Winner of the 2015 Tony Award® for Best Musical Revival, THE KING AND I is “too beautiful to miss” (New York Magazine).
