It was such a great night! We hosted a lovely reception in Confederation Park on Sunday evening (June 24th) and despite the cloud burst, our guests were kept dry and comfy under the protection of the tent we had compliments of our friends at the Ottawa International Jazz Festival.
As long-time sponsors of the Jazz Festival, we were able to invite our guests to a great night under the stars with the amazing drums of the Conga Kings – an 11 piece Rumba Group with 3 of the master congueros of Afro-cuban music. It was a great evening .. great music, fabulous food and drink and great company.
To our delight, this year, our partners at the Ottawa Jazz Festival awarded the Lord Elgin Hotel with the ‘Corporate Award of Distinction’. We have been working with the Jazz Festival for well over 10 years and it was so rewarding to have this award presented to us. With our location, it makes so much sense to give back to these festivals that provide the color and culture that make this a great town! Kudos to the unfailing efforts of people like Catherine O’Grady and the heads of all the other wonderful summer festivals and all those behind them for all they do to bring such fabulous entertainment to our city! We are proud to be a part of what you do!
