Spirit of Rasputin’s Christmas Party
Monday, December 16
7:00 to 10:00 pm
The Olde Forge, 2730 Carling Ave.
at Richmond Rd.
replacing for this night only our regular Open Stage at Whispers

Our always-popular Christmas party takes place this year on December 16 at 7:00 pm at the Olde Forge on Carling. That’s a Monday, and the party replaces our usual Monday night Open Stage at the Whispers pub in Westboro.

This year we want everyone to get home at a reasonable time. (In past years, we’ve had so many performers that we’ve gone on to midnight.) So we’ve limited ourselves to 18 performers. Submissions for performing are now closed. But everyone is welcome to come to enjoy the music and the festive refreshments provided by Spirit of Rasputin’s.

There are special parking arrangements. Please see the map and instructions.


Spirit of Rasputin’s, Ottawa’s folk music society, continues its musical activities with our popular Monday night Open Stage at the Whispers pub in Westboro, as well as the Folk-along Jam on Tuesday nights at the Vimy Brewing Company.

Meanwhile, there are lots of musical events going on around town, many of them involving our Spirit of Rasputin’s regulars as performers or organizers. Check them out on our friends’ events page. Presenters are welcome to submit an event for listing there.
