The video of the 2016 Ottawa Grassroots Festival, shot & edited by Chad Kirvan and Andrew Hall is a must see! This was the 5th edition of the festival, and our first time in our new location at Southminster United Church, in Old Ottawa South beside the historic Rideau Canal. It is an extended version of the 5-min video on our home page and includes more interviews and additional footage of festival. The video helps explain why so many volunteers, sponsors, artists and community partners get involved every year!
