 The Ottawa Souk(Cancelled)

We have sad news. We are very sorry to let you know that the Ottawa Souk on April 30 2017 is cancelled.

Unfortunately interest from vendors this year has been very low, and we had to make the difficult decision between cancelling or going ahead and take the risk of providing a disappointing experience. The last thing we want is for people to put in their time (and money) into a day that is poorly attended.

We figured it was best to completely open and honest about the reasons for cancelling.

We love this event and really enjoy working with each other together with our vendors and volunteers to offer it for the community, so we remain open to the possibility of doing this event again another time when there may be more interest.

If you would like to see an Ottawa Souk offered in 2018, please let us know!

Please join our mailing list, and keep following us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest news and updates.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience – believe us that no one is more disappointed than we are!

Lisa-Marie & Jehane
