June 8–18 @ Tabaret Lawn

We’re celebrating our 20th anniversary by moving our Beer Tent to a brand new location!

Located on Tabaret Lawn on the University of Ottawa campus – just steps away from Academic Hall, Studio Léonard-Beaulne, and a host of BYOVs – it is THE place to meet friends old & new, grab a drink and a bite to eat, share stories and ask “What have you seen? What should I see?”

Beer Tent Hours
Monday – Thursday 5pm – 1am
Friday 5pm – 2am
Saturday 2pm – 2am
Sunday 2pm – 1am
