City of Om - Don't Miss the Lil Om'ies Zone!

May 22, 2024

City of Om is Ottawa's Yoga and Wellness Festival. It takes place from May 31st - June 1st, 2024 at Lansdowne Park. The best part is there is great programming at the Lil Om'ies Zone which I would like to share with you!

About the Festival

City of Om is Ottawa’s largest health and wellness festival. This festival is ideal for folks of any age who are interested in deepening their passion for overall wellness. Ultimately, City of OM aims to unite all aspects of fitness to inspire a unique journey for all guests through collective lived experiences and an inclusive environment, conducive to discovering one’s authentic self.

What started as a yoga festival, has now evolved into much more. The majority of the festival’s 35+ classes are variations of yoga styles including high intensity classes, slackline yoga, kids yoga, live music and special guess to support wellness and foster community in a free-spirited, festival atmosphere. Come spend the day with us at the Lil Om’ies Zone. You can paint pots, meditation rocks, and bags, and participate in dance and yoga classes. We'll have lots of fun activities for all the little ones. You can also get your face painted and hula hoop the day away! This is a free event for the kids, but parents have to be present. The Vendor Village boasts over 30 local and international vendors with exclusive product. This area is open to ticket holders and the public alike.
