Riverfest Elora, everyone’s favourite little-big music festival, returns to Ontario’s most beautiful village this August! 

The beloved 3-day outdoor event has grown into one of Canada’s premier music, community & arts festivals, offering top tier headliners, up-and-coming acts of all genres, local artisans, and food trucks, all in a majestic setting along the banks of the famed Grand River in Elora, Ontario.

Riverfest Elora has grown exponentially since starting as a backyard bash in 2009. The festival, which celebrates its 14th edition this summer, now draws crowds of more than 5,000 a day over the August weekend.

Riverfest Elora credits its success over the years to the strength of its local partnerships, and the unwavering support of Elora’s small but mighty community. “We are deeply grateful to the community of Elora & Centre Wellington for continuing to support us with their enthusiasm, encouragement and their time,” says David Lander, Riverfest Elora’s newly appointed Executive Director. “With a dedicated team of over 500 volunteers, we get to welcome locals and people from across Canada to a truly magical experience each and every year! It’s an honour to be a part of all the incredible moving parts that make the festival the national staple that it has become.”

The community-run music and arts festival continues to build on the tremendous success of past installments, which have included performances by world class touring acts Metric, Feist, Alessia Cara, The Flaming Lips, City and Colour, MGMT, Charles Bradley, Carly Rae Jepsen, Arkells, Blue Rodeo, and many more.

“This year’s lineup feels like the strongest group of artists we’ve ever brought to the festival,” says Spencer Shewen, Riverfest Elora’s Artistic Director. “We have something for everyone, with three musically diverse but complementary headliners and an incredible supporting cast that is going to get everyone dancing.”
