WOW1: The Junkyard launch of WelliWOW!

Celebrating the 2022 opening of Parkdale Market

On Saturday, May 7 the WWBIA kicked-off the 2022 ARTS SEASON with the first of 10 WelliWOW Pop-Up Arts Performances for the official opening of the Parkdale Market—in collaboration with the Friends of the Parkdale Market, Ottawa Markets, and MASC Community Arts!

WOW2 Featured Artist:

Eco-entertainers Junkyard Symphony paraded a 4-piece band along Wellington St. West with drums and noisemakers to round up an audience and march to the Pat McLeod Community Stage at Parkdale Park. They—along with City Councillor Jeff Leiper and Zachary Dayler of Ottawa Markets—officially opened the market season by making some BIG NOISE, followed by radical rhythms, circus tricks, and a few big laughs from the crowd!

Thank you to all who attended! It was a great way to launch this very exciting ARTS PERFORMANCE series!
