Riverfest Elora

Ontario’s “big-little” festival continues its run as one of Canada’s premier boutique festivals, offering top tier headliners, up-and-coming indie bands, local artisans, food trucks and craft brews, all within a majestically natural setting along the banks of the famed Grand River in Elora — Ontario’s most beautiful village.

Heading into the 11th annual installment, Riverfest Elora, which started as a backyard festival in 2009 with an attendance of around 700 people, has grown exponentially in recent years to see crowds of more than 5,000 a day over the August weekend.

Growing from the success of past instalments, which have included performances by The Flaming Lips, MGMT, Carly Rae Jepsen, Arkells, Metric, July Talk, Blue Rodeo, Chromeo, The Sheepdogs, Gogol Bordello, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Serena Ryder, Walk Off The Earth, Charles Bradley, Donovan Woods, Bahamas, The Strumbellas and many more, Riverfest Elora thrives because of the  ongoing support it receives through its artistic partnerships and the unwavering support of Elora’s small but mighty community.
