Things to Do in Ottawa in June - SavvyMom

Fun family activities and events in Ottawa in June include indoor and outdoor opportunities that will delight all ages. As the school year comes to a close, we know families are incredibly busy this month, but get out your calendar because we think you’ll want to mark down some of these dates!

Please note, after the recent devastating storm that hit in and around Ottawa, at the time of writing this we aren’t sure if some events and locations will be affected as the weeks go on. We are thinking of everyone affected by the storm.
