The 2Rivers Festival is an annual two month event in May and June intended to inspire a love of the Speed and Eramosa Rivers.
We do not feel the need to protect what we do not know, but we will fiercely defend what we love.
Our rivers are so easy to fall in love with......
The 2Rivers Festival was intended as a way to connect people in Guelph with our rivers and to inspire in them a love for the preciousness of what we enjoy here. This event is run by a volunteer steering committee and we are currently seeking a few new individuals for our 2019 festival. Consider joining our steering committee to help keep our creativity high and to engage an even broader population in the exploration of our rivers and all that they offer.
The steering committee meets once a month to oversee logistics for The 2Rivers Festival. The role of the steering committee itself is not to host events but rather to reach out to organizations who are already engaged with our rivers and to help organize and promote events offered by these groups.
Please contact us at [email protected] if you are interested in joining this team and bringing your skills, talents and love of our rivers to help connect even more residents with The Speed and The Eramosa rivers.
We are also looking for individuals to help support us during the festival itself. If you are interested in volunteering during the 2019 Festival, please sign up below!
