NDG | Things to do in NDG this Winter

Updated: Apr 12

Learn Something New Everyday


November instills a sense of time shifting gears, seasonal expectations, and brings back memories of studying in cozy coffee shops as the leaves tumble and the winter winds send chills down your neck. Autumn is basically over, the smell of the first snow is in the air, and most everyone is preparing for the harsh weather to come. If you’re like me, I start to become apprehensive about the encroaching winter months and think of ways to avoid hibernation mode. Participating in a workshop or registering for the new schedule of classes at your local community centre, can help get you out of your work to Netflix routine, meet people, learn something new, bone up on existing skills, or just keep fit so you can have all the winter comfort food without becoming your own best source of insulation.


Searching around the internet for things to do can sometimes feel overwhelming-how do I choose, or confusing-too many pages and events to keep straight. I thought I’d help you all out by rounding up a list of upcoming workshops as well as spaces offering workshops and courses around the borough of CDN-NDG. With the CDN-NDG borough being as large as it is, it can be difficult to find out or keep up with all the goings on, so we at What’s Up NDG will keep you informed!


*Be sure to register for workshops as spaces are usually limited and if you register you must show up!
