If you’ve never been to the Elora Festival, make this year your first. Over the past 35 years, the much-anticipated musical celebration has seen some of Canada’s finest modern-day talent, including Sarah McLachlan, Holly Cole, Steven Page and Randy Bachman — just to name a few. This year, the 16-day festival kicks off on July 10th and includes 25 different performances across seven different venues before its wrap-up at the end of the month. In preparation for this exciting festival, Williams and McDaniel Property Management has put together a blog for those living — or looking to live — in the first industry-certified apartments for rent in Elora.
East Elora’s Sandstone Apartments (120-122 David Street) are less than a 10-minute walk from one of the festival’s main venues, St. John’s Church (36 Henderson Street), so you’ll be able to squeeze in as many performances as possible without the stress of finding a cab.
This year, you can catch Handel’s Solomon during the opening night gala on July 10 at Gambrel Barn (corner of Country Road 7 and 21), another major venue, which is just a quick 10-minute drive from Sandstone Apartments. Other notable festival performances include The Mike Janzen Trio, Stewart Goodyear, Mark Masri, The Next Generation Leahy, The Jackie Richardson Trio, Torq Percussion Quartet, and Glenn Buhr and the Button Factory Band. The final night of the Elora Festival wraps up with Nine Lessons and Carols of Summer, a fun summery twist on the Christmas tradition.
Though the festival is centred around musical performances, there are other events happening during the 16-day span. These include a book sale, a 35th anniversary quilt fundraiser and the Elora Festival Kids Camp.
Tickets for the Elora Festival range in price and include student discounts, season passes and flex packages. They can be purchased here.
