Parking

Driving to Elora? That's cool. We are less than 30 minutes away from Guelph, Kitchener and Waterloo. Downtown Toronto is just 90 minutes away down the 401 and through Guelph.

Riverfest is held at Bissell Park in Elora, Ontario on the banks of the Grand River, located just two blocks east of downtown at 127 Mill Street E.

If you are driving in from out of town, make sure to look for signage guiding you to Bissell Park. Now here's where you can park.

Grand River Raceway

Riverfest's main parking lot is at the Grand River Raceway. Park here and take a shuttle over to the fest! The raceway is at 7445 Wellington County Rd. 21Elora.

Street parking

There is an abundance of street parking all over Elora, including near the festival grounds. When parking on the street, be sure to take into consideration that people live here. Try to stay off of lawns and don't block driveways. Or we will get yelled at!

Elora Centre for the Arts

The ECFTA is offering about 130 premium parking spots, right across the street from the festival. Spots are $20 per car, first come first served, but please note there is NO OVERNIGHT PARKING! Accessible parking here (with a permit) is free of charge.

Bike parking at the festival

We can't forget about our biking friends. We'll have a specific spot to lockup your bike, just past the festival gates. Don't forget your bike lock, helmet and light (if you are biking home at night)! Please be respectful of foot traffic when biking in and out of the festival grounds.
