The inaugural Two Rivers Festival took place from June 10-17 2012.
Where you there? If you were, you’d have witnessed a wonderful coming together of the community to celebrate a very important part of our city. There were hikes along the rivers, tree identification activities, juggling, discussions around the history and future of the river lands, music, water-dance and a general celebration of our two Heritage Rivers: The Speed and Eramosa.
Do you know our rivers? Do you know where they begin and end? Do you enjoy their tree diversity along the green corridor on both sides as they slide through Guelph?
If you want to learn more, you won’t want to miss the second annual Two Rivers Festival in 2013, so stay tuned.
