This Weekend in the L-dot

We’ve got a pretty exciting weekend coming up starting as early as Thursday with the first events of LOLA fest. Check out the full schedule of events here.

Not sure what it is? Here’s a brief description:
“LOLA (London Ontario Live Arts) is a free four-day multi-disciplinary excursion into visual art and sound. Our aim is to transform London’s downtown core through subtle spectacles of the seen and heard.”

This weekend also brings Doors Open London running on Sept. 18th & 19th. This is an exciting opportunity to celebrate and recognize London’s numerous, significant landmarks. Check out the full listing of DO London locations.

You can also print a copy of the DO London Kid’s Guide which includes a Passport that kids can bring with them to get a stamp at each site location as they track their Doors Open London journey. Admission for all sites is FREE!

And last, but not least it’s the last weekend of the Western Fair and the weather looks like it is going to be beautiful!

Hope to see you out at some of these great events this weekend! Enjoy!

  1. Awesome. Thanks City Mom! I didn’t realize all these events were going on and I usually like to go to some of the Doors Open things, and the LOLA stuff sounds really cool!

  2. LOLA is a great event, especially if you enjoy checking out new up and coming artists/musicians.

    One other event that is new to the city and happening this Friday from 11am – 1pm is called PARK(ing) Day. It was originally started in San Francisco in 2005 and has grown to be a worldwide event in recent years. The concept is to reclaim public space in the city by paying the meter at an on-street parking space and transforming it into a park, patio or some form of social space for the maximum 2 hour parking time.

    You can get more information on London’s first attempt at it here:

  3. Oh awesome! Thankn you so much Ryan for sharing that with us. I’m going to update the post to include that as well!! It’s good to have eyes and ears all over the city! Have a good weekend.
