The 2019 Ottawa Improv Festival is in downtown Ottawa at Arts Court, which is at 2 Daly Ave., steps from the Rideau Centre and a short walk to the ByWard Market. The festival runs over three days, February 28 to March 2, 2019.

The Theatre

All Ottawa Improv Festival shows will be in the gorgeous and intimate Theatre space — just follow the signs and take the elevator up to the second floor.


The accessible entrance is located at 10 Daly Ave., just east of the main entrance. Take the elevator to the 3rd floor and turn left. When possible, please try to arrive a few minutes early in case the elevator is in use upon arrival. There is an accessible washroom on the 3rd floor. Turn right after exiting the elevator. Some front row seating is removable in Arts Court Theatre for patrons using wheelchairs upon request.

Arts Court is wheelchair accessible by elevator by prior arrangement. Please phone 613-564-7240 for more information. There are also accessible washrooms on both first and second floor of the building.


From Arts Court’s website: “From the west or east, take the 417 (Queensway) to the Nicholas Street exit. At the lights, continue on Waller Street. Turn left on Daly Avenue. Parking is available in the underground parking lot at the Rideau Centre.”


Arts Court is a short walk from the Mackenzie King Bridge/Rideau Centre bus stations, at which many routes stop. Consult the OC Transpo Travel Planner for more information.
