Today, we’re going to tell you about some family friendly events going on in the city that you and your loved ones should definitely check out!

Be Sure To Check Out These Ottawa Events in August

If you and your family members are fans of the visual arts, then we recommend you head over to the Shenkman Arts Centre to enjoy its latest exhibit by Mary Pal titled “Conversational Treads: Impressions in Fibre. This collection of sculpted cheesecloth portraits will help start a conversation about where we form our initial impressions and perceptions of the world around us. It’s truly fascinating. Check out this free event now through August 19 at the shenkman Arts Centre, 245 Centrum Boulevard in Ottawa. Email shenkmanartscentre@ottawa.ca for more information.

Or perhaps you might want to consider checking out the On the Water exhibition at the OWAA gallery. This features works from local artists, all of which are up for vote on the People’s Choice Ballot for favorite artwork. This exhibit runs through Sept. 5 at Goulbourn Recreation Complex, located at 1500 Shea Rd. in Stittsville. Learn more by emailing blafor@rogers.com

More of a history buff? Then head over to the Canadian History Museum to learn about the horse business and its roots in Canada. “Breeding Champions – EP Taylor and Windfields Farm” is an exhibit that explores EP Taylor’s passion for horses and horse racing. This bilingual exhibit is free with museum admission and runs through next January. Visit the Canadian Museum of History at 100 Laurier Street in Gatineau or visit http://www.historymuseum.ca for more information.

And if you have a free afternoon, you simply must check out the CENTimental Journey, presented by the Currency Museum of the Bank of Canada. This temporary exhibit will walk you through 150 years of history of the Canadian 1 cent piece. Exhibit runs now through next June at the Canadian Museum of History, 100 Laurier Street in Gainteau.
