Petrie Summer Smash

Variety of Ottawa – the Children’s Charity

The First Annual Petrie Summer Smash Volleyball and Picnic Day at beautiful Petrie Island Beach will be held in support of Variety of Ottawa – the Children’s Charity on August 18th this summer. Variety has been active in the National Capital Region since 1993 and has contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to local children’s support groups such as Children’s Wish, Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and many others.

Please come and support Variety and our sponsors in their efforts to help fund a fully accessible Beach Playground for Petrie Island. Thanks to Urban Barrel Co. and Orleans Dodge and out many sponsors for stepping up to make this happen.


About Volleyball Teams

Sand, sun and a whole lots of family fun! It’s time to put your team together for the first annual Petrie Summer Smash Volleyball Tournament! Start by putting a 6 person co-ed team (min. 2 females, max 8ppl) together and then kick back and get ready to play!

Not into volleyball? Then join as a spectator and come out to cheer for your favorite team and enjoy an amazing line up of live music!


It’s all for a great cause!

The proceeds raised will benefit the Variety of Ottawa and help build an accessible park right here at Petrie Island for all to enjoy.
