You always want to look good, but festival fashion can’t be all haut-couture. Your festival outfit is also your survival kit. If you think about what you're wearing once you're there, you aren’t doing it right. You don’t want to be focusing on your sore feet or how the sun is blinding you, you want to be eating, drinking and taking in as much fun as you possibly can.

We’ve compiled some smart summer festival fashions from around the world to give you an idea of what will be best for the Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival, taking place this year June 23-26 at Mooney’s Bay Park.


A loose-fitting tank keeps you looking and feeling cool when the temperatures rises. Pair it with sunglasses and a hat to protect you from the sun and you have an easy outfit that is functional and looks good.

A beautiful denim jumpsuit lets you feel the breeze while keeping you mostly covered from the sun. Top it off with neutral wedges, a skinny belt and a matching crossbody bag to give it that effortless feel.

This long-sleeved lightweight H&M romper lets you move freely while looking great. It works well with many different accessories, from fedoras to flowers.




A classic look that isn’t about to go out of style. Keep the denim jacket tied around your waist during the day, then pop it back on during our free concerts at night.

Hippie-chic is a classic festival look. Long, flowy dresses are perfect for a sunny day near the water, and the flowers, rose-tinted sunglasses and colorful bracelets complete the look.
