This year marked the festival's tenth anniversary. That's quite an impressive milestone when the realities of how hard it is to put on a great festival year after year become more and more apparent. I only hope that Riverfest Elora can keep it up and I'll still be covering it over the decades to come.
Riverfest Elora gathers an amazing mixture of established and classic acts, up and coming artists and brand new discoveries. I'm guaranteed to come away having experienced the best of each, along with some new bands that blew my mind. It's an exceptionally well-curated festival that is well organized and well run, and attracts an enthusiastic and fun-loving yet easy-going crowd. It's a pretty difficult combination to pull off and Riverfest Elora does it so well. I look forward to this festival each year.
I was left this year with one amusing thought. It totally cracks me up that people have these new canoe shaped lounge chair things and they have to run like crazy, trailing them behind like some tubular stringless kite, and do this many times, just so they can sit down. *Shrugs and sits on the grass*
