What we're about

What does our Awesome Group have to offer you?

Have your ears been filled with everyone warning you that Ottawa is a dead city with no Activities or Fun? This group exists to shatter that image! Join us as we discover everything that Ottawa has to offer. Every week we partake in Awesome events and mingle with Awesome people.

Our meetup group is Young mostly consisting of 20s and 30s age group. We go out to pubs, clubs, coffee nights, pub crawls, board games, karaoke, yoga, biking, hiking and everything in between. If you are shy or feel a little awkward coming out to your first event, the organizers are here to help you as we have been in your position as well. Let us help you blend into the group.

This meetup is open for anyone who wants to host events as well. So go crazy and host events that you find fun and awesome. As long as it does not fall in the Sponsor Criteria, you are free to post any event. This is how I started and now I can't stop myself from meeting new people and enlarging my friend circle.

This group is FREE for members. You are free to join and come out to see what all the talk is about. What do you have to lose? Come out for a drink with us!
