Whether you’re looking for indoor or outdoor activities, Panoramic Properties wants to highlight just a few of the reasons why Ottawa is a great place to live in fall and winter.

The Ottawa Wine and Food Festival will celebrate it’s 33rd year in 2018, so you know they’re doing something right. Keep your fall spirits high, come and taste the best wine, beer, food and spirits the world has to offer. This event runs from November 2nd to 4th.

Christmas Lights Across Canada

Come and bask in the light of the 34th edition of Christmas Lights Across Canada. The lights turn on during the official illumination ceremony on Wednesday, December 5th, 2018 at 7 pm. You can also take in the Magical Winter Lightscapes multimedia show projected onto Parliament Hill buildings every night until January 7th, 2019.

Indoor Tree Lighting

If you want to enjoy the seasonal charm of a tree lighting, but also want to stay warm indoors, then you’ve got to check out the Indoor Tree Lighting at the National Gallery of Canada (380 Sussex Drive). Admission is free and the event runs from 5 pm to 8 pm on December 7th. The event will feature special treats, activities and the tree lighting at 6:30 pm.
