On Friday, February 5, 2016, at Ottawa City Hall, patrons were treated to an evening of Caribbean music, dancing and cuisine at the “ON THE ROCKS: in the Caribbean” event presented by the Ottawa Art Gallery. “ON THE ROCKS” is a CHILL FACTOR event during Winterlude presented in partnership with the Downtown Rideau BIA, ArtHaus condominiums by DevMcGill. Every year the Ottawa Art Gallery throws a party to celebrate winter cultures from around the world. This year they chose to celebrate the sights, sounds and flavours of the Caribbean by partnering with the Jamaican High Commission, the High Commission of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, the High Commission of St. Kitts & Nevis, and the City of Ottawa.
