The 2Rivers Festival

The 2Rivers Festival is an annual festival celebrating the beautiful Speed and Eramosa rivers, which meet in the city of Guelph, Ontario. Since its beginning in 2012, people have gathered to share, enjoy and discover all that these rivers bring to our community. By showing that we value our rivers, we contribute to actions that will help to protect them.

This year’s 2Rivers Festival features a wide variety of FREE river-related events to attend in May and June 2016, including canoeing, kayaking, hiking, cycling and river restoration. Learn more about this year's wonderful events! You can also download our 2016 Festival Guide.

All 2Rivers Festival events are FREE and open to attend. To help us get an idea of numbers, we invite you to register. We look forward to seeing you on the banks of our two rivers!

Let's keep this excitement going year round! Sign up for our newsletter to stay connected to events and happenings on our rivers.

Interested in contributing to the 2016 festival?

Our festival is volunteer-run and we welcome new volunteers for festival coordination and new partners to offer events. As the festival draws nearer, we are currently looking for volunteers to help in a number of ways. Sign up here.
