RBC Youth Stage Presented by Bluesfest School of Music and Art

Since founding in 2014, the Bluesfest School of Music and Art has been creating opportunities for students to discover, explore and deepen a relationship with the arts through group classes and workshops, special events, camps, lessons and concerts.

Saturday and Sunday don’t miss Ottawa’s talented young artists presented by Westboro’s very own Bluesfest School of Music and Art’s travelling stage.  A full two days of live music and interactive art lessons!

Dueling Pianos

Dave Kalil, Tyler Kealey and Todd Huckabone have been a staple of the music scene in Ottawa known as the Dueling Pianos for over ten years. Their musical ability and interactive personalities have captivated audiences since they formed the group in 2002.

Playing a blend of requests from the audience, blistering guitar and piano solos, three part harmonies, and random comedic impromptu moments, watch out for these guys during FUSE when they take their act to the streets of Westboro Village!

Junkyard Symphony

Based in Ottawa, Canada, Junkyard Symphony performs an amazing junk percussion/comedy/circus show. Junkyard Symphony strives to promote environmental health and awareness through educational and extraordinary entertainment using old ordinary objects that would otherwise be sadly destined for the junkyard

…But to Junkyard Symphony, however, these objects are terrific treasures that can be reused for an even greater purpose…. creating lots of big smiles! Be prepared for a radical ride of rapid rhythms, crazy comedy, awesome antics, tons of talent, and plenty of participation.

MEC Camping Demos and Games

If you love getting active outdoors you’re going to want to visit MEC during Westboro Fuse! MEC has teamed up with Parks Canada, and invites you to join them for outdoors themed games and workshops!

Learning has never been so much fun!

Capital Pop-Up Theatre

Treat your family and friends to Ottawa’s premiere outdoor movie screening experience. Join us for the unique experience of enjoying an evening of cinema right in the middle of Westboro’s main street, the normally busy Richmond Rd– closed especially for FUSE Street Festival!

Chris Pillsworth

International prize-winning Ottawa magician Chris Pillsworth is coming to Fuse Street Festival! A longtime Ottawa staple, Chris’s personal approach to the performance of magic has made him a highly respected throughout Ontario and Western Quebec.

We’re looking forward to hosting him at this years’ FUSE as he shocks and amazes your friends and family with jaw-dropping feats of magic and illusion!

Fire Weavers and the Mini Cirque Group

Fire Weavers and the Mini Cirque Group is a troupe of highly specialized and world-class fire dancing, and circus-style entertainment.

Prepare to be dazzled by their entrancing fire or light shows, roaming stilt-walking or juggling performances to mobile interactive circus workshops and classes as you enjoy strolling through our animated FUSE streetscape!

BUSHTUKAH FAMILY ACTIVITIES AND BIKE VALET

THE PIGGY MARKET AT WINSTON SQUARE

The Piggy Market is a place where food and community meet in old fashioned ways to remind us of the comforts of getting together over a meal. This year they will be taking back to Winston Square where they will be cooking up all sorts of amazing locally sourced cuisine. Last year’s pig roast was one of FUSE’s biggest highlights and we can’t wait to see what they have in store this year!
