As the spring air turns warmer and leaves turn greener, we would normally be preparing for our upcoming summer season in Elora and Fergus. Nestled along the cliffs of the Elora Gorge and the Grand River, Elora and Fergus have become a destination for summer getaways, weddings, as well as many of our popular events and festivals. And though right now isn’t the time to visit us, we hope you’re still dreaming.
“Elora is a little town in Ontario bursting with creativity, art and good food. Plus an awesome brewery. A day well spent for me is always when I’m there. When all of this is over and return to normal life I cannot wait to go back.”
In fact, we’d like your help in keeping that dream alive. As you clean your home and reminisce with friends over a video chat, you may have stumbled across fond memories of your travels from years gone by. We’d love to see your photos and hear your stories from your trips to Elora and Fergus so we all can keep #DreamingofEloraFergus
“My favourite time of day is early morning before sunrise and its cool to watch the sun come up on the Grand River in Fergus”
If you’ve visited us before, you know the hometown pride Fergus has for its Scottish roots, or Elora’s iconic title of “Ontario’s most beautiful village”. You’ve explored hiking along the Gorge or tubing down the Grand River. Our historic downtowns bustle with artists and musicians while you shop for the perfect souvenir, or dine in one of our exquisite restaurants. Many of you have travelled from far and wide to take part in the Fergus Scottish Festival and Highland Games or rocked out to world-class musicians at Riverfest Elora. A stroll behind-the-scenes capturing an artist at work on the Elora Fergus Studio Tour or the power of voice at the Elora Festival. Whatever it is that drew you to us in the past, we’d love to know – and don’t forget to shout out to those local businesses you love!
