The outdoor festival, held along the banks of the Grand River, has come a long way since its humble beginnings just eight years ago. Riverfest, which started as a backyard festival in 2009 with an attendance of around 700 people, has grown exponentially in recent years and saw crowds of over 4-5,000 a day during the last few installments.

Following the successes of 2014 and 2015, which included performances by Blue Rodeo, Metric, Serena Ryder, Charles Bradley, Sharon Jones, Sam Roberts Band, Shakey Graves, Tokyo Police Club, Arkells, New Pornographers, Donovan Woods, Bahamas and more, Riverfest Elora is enjoying the continued support it has been receiving through its ongoing community and artistic partnerships and the unwavering support of its’ regional community.
