Saturday Oct 3 - A mischievous fund-raiser with cirque/parkour acrobats, champion DJs, opera, orchestras, champion beatboxers with celtic fiddling, tribal dancers, karaoke, and much more!

This 5th anniversary edition of the pop-up event is in three parts - starting with a farmer's market and vintage funfair, followed by a farm-to-table chic picnic, and capped off by "Ottawa's sexiest" dance after-party. Groups of friends of all ages dress creatively in black, gather en masse at a secret downtown location for the picnic of a lifetime accompanied by refined music, and then dance the night away at an extraordinary venue. With a participatory fashion show, a swing ballroom and a DJ dancehall, and a strong social mission, Harvest Noir is a feast for all the senses.

The final Harvest Noir (yes, we are retiring) is going out with a big bang on Saturday October 3:

  • Headlined by two-time Canadian DMX champion DJ Shub battling DJ Acro on the dancefloor.
  • A small army of acrobats and sideshow acts will be on hand, including an edgy urban acrobatic parkour demonstration, stilt-walkers, face-painters, aerial cirque performance, tribal dancers, acrobatics, hoopers, ventriloquists, magicians, and fire dancers.
  • Celtic fiddlers Beat and Bows, backed by BBWC Wildcard winning beatboxer Julia Dales, are debuting as picnic accompaniment .
  • Two-time Juno nominee DJ Socalled will be bringing out the hip hop, klezmer, accordion, and piano as the Official Carnival music provider.
  • The Stan Clark Orchestra will be playing swing, ragtime, and jive while Ottawa Swing Dynamite's dancers provide swing dance demonstrations and lessons.
  • Also look out for a karaoke lounge by China Doll, tribal fusion dance/chillout tent by Mascarié, Opera performance by Joseph Song Chi, and more!
