(August 2009) Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest 2007 in LeBreton Flats Park – aerial view The Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest is an annual outdoor music festival that takes place each July in downtown Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. While ostensibly focused on blues, the festival has increasingly showcased mainstream pop and rock acts in recent years. The Bluesfest has become the largest blues festival in Canada, and the second largest in North America.[1] Since its inception, the festival has been managed by executive and artistic director Mark Monahan and a small group of full-time employees, including director of sponsorship, Nathalie Laperrière and director of communications, AJ Sauve, adding current director of operations Mike Rouleau in 2004 and director of volunteer services Tammy Parent in 2006. In 2008, Sarah PC and William Yap joined the team as programming assistant and accounting coordinator, respectively. In 2002, the Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest won the Best Event Award from the Ottawa Tourism and Convention Authority and in 2003 the organization received the Keeping the Blues Alive (KBA) award for arts education from the Memphis Blues Foundation. Mark Monahan is a past recipient of the Toronto Blues Society’s Blues with a Feeling award.
