House of PainT Festival of Arts and Culture brings the four elements of hip hop together – with writers covering concrete walls while DJs and MCs fill the air with beats & rhymes and bboys, bgirls an’ their crews throw down. Concession stands sellin’ art, clothes and crafts by local artists, a community BBQ serving summer foods, a kids corner and workshops teachin’ mural painting, breakin’, DJin’ and the history of hip hop and urban life in Canada and the world.

The event started in 2003 as a celebration of the creation of Ottawa’s first Free Zone for Legal Art. Since then it’s become a yearly event under the bridge, bringing Ottawa’s grassroots hip hop community together for Ottawa’s dopest old school block party style summer event! 613-998-4944
