The JUNOs take over Ottawa this weekend, bringing some of the country’s best talent to the nation’s capital for the big show. But the party doesn’t have to wait until Sunday night—the city will be bustling all weekend with JUNO Week events and exhibitions.

Check out our picks—and where to eat while you’re there—below:

JUNO Songwriters’ Circle

Hosted by 12-time JUNO award winner Bruce Cockburn, JUNO nominees share the stories behind their songs. The intimate concert is one of the highlights of JUNO week, and this year, will feature Daniel Caesar, Chantal Kreviazuk and more.

When: Sunday, April 2
Where:  National Arts Centre, 53 Elgin St. Directions here.
Where to eat: Head to The Scone Witch and get a famous SconeWitch sandwich, or grab tacos from El Camino’s window.

 

JUNOfest

This two-night festival will feature over 100 artists playing on stages across 15 different venues. Some artists performing include The Strumbellas, The Dirty Nil, Tasha The Amazon and more. We suggest checking out Harrison at Zaphods, one of Ottawa’s most cherished music venues.

When: Friday March 31 – Saturday, April 1
Where: Multiple venues. Full schedule here.
Where to eat: Head to Elgin Street Diner for late night eats or check out the speakeasy downstairs at Union Local 613.

This exhibit will highlight the synergy between visual art and music, showcasing work from prominent Canadian musicians, including Lights, Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew, Leonard Cohen and more.

When: Runs until April 16
Where: Ottawa Art Gallery Annex, 110 Laurier Ave. Directions here.
Where to eat: Put a song on the jukebox at Chez Lucien and treat yourself to a burger or brunch.

The JUNOs will be hosted by Russell Peters and Bryan Adams and will be broadcast live from Ottawa’s Canadian Tire Centre on Sunday, April 2 at 7E/4P on CTV and CTV GO.
