The 35th Edition of HOPE VOLLEYBALL SUMMERFEST!
Can you believe it’s been 35 short years since Fred Logan and his group of friends started HOPE Volleyball? Time has flown by and we’ve grown so much, not only in size, but in pride, in all that we have accomplished in giving back to the Ottawa community. For those of you that have been with us since the beginning, to those of you who joined us for the first time this year – a big THANK YOU and see you this year on Saturday, July 15th! Let’s celebrate!!
THE HOPE MAINSTAGE
The HOPE Mainstage concert area provides music-lovers a great musical experience with plenty of elbow room in the swelling crowds. SummerFest has taken advantage of the existing hillside available at its traditional home by Mooney’s Bay to provide a natural amphitheatre accompanied by a bigger and better stage and soundscape. Located at the north end of the beach near the Hog’s Back Road Marina lot, this is a licensed area so bring your ID! Non-registered participants must purchase a wristband to access.

Missioner: 11:15am to 12:00pm

HOT 89.9 HOT ZONE
The Hot 89.9 HOT ZONE sizzles at SummerFest. Stop by and say ‘hi’ to your favourite DJs who will be cranking out the hits from this prime location smack dab in the middle of the beach! Meet up with friends to enjoy a little bit of shade and frosty beverages. Admission is $20.00 advance or $27.00 at the gate for non-players and also gives you access to the HOPE Mainstage for more live music & fun!
Children aged 9 and under are admitted to the festival free of charge when accompanied by a ticket-holding adult. Children aged 10 and above will need tickets for entrance in the licensed areas.
BE SURE TO BRING YOUR WATER BOTTLES
We encourage attendees and players to bring refillable water bottles as there will be water refill stations at the event! The refill stations are free to use and helps minimize event waste. With the help of AQUA HAULICS INC. , we will be eliminating 24,000 plastic water bottles from our site! Help us keep Mooney’s Bay a beautiful place for all!
