Ottawa wants to book headline act for Riverfest

Posted by wlpo on February 17, 2010

After a year of just regional musical acts, Ottawa Riverfest organizers are open to bringing in at least one headline act this year.

          The Riverfest budget of $207,000 was placed on file Tuesday night by the Ottawa City Council.  The budget is about $60,000 more than a year ago.  Commissioner Wayne Eichelkraut says they’re looking to bring in a headline group to play the Saturday night of Riverfest. 

          As in past years, events like Art in the Park and a book sale will go on the week of Riverfest in the downtown before live music, a carnival and Taste of Ottawa opens up for the weekend.
