​​Centre Wellington's Cultural Resource Centre

Want your event to be in ship shape?  We are here to help!

Our goal is to maximize year-round event support to organizations who wish to stage wildly successful events in Centre Wellington and surrounding areas.  By providing an events resource centre we can assist these events to ensure they are better organized and safe, resulting in the ultimate visitor experiences and favourable economic consequences for the community.

How does the Cultural Resource Centre Work (CRC)?

  • The CRC is a supportive setting/one stop shop for cultural organizations serving the community.
  • It offers event resources for rent
  • Community groups/event organizers become partners and share resources in exchange for storage, maintenance and insurance of those resources. ​
  • Partners "rent" their resources at no charge and receive a 25% discount off the rental price for other resources
  • Other events or groups (non-partners) can also rent resources at the full rental cost.

How to become a partner​
If you are interested renting equipment or in becoming a partner, please contact Elizabeth Bender, Cultural Coordinator.
Do you have a surplus of equipment that could be of use to a community event?  Please contact us to discuss!

*New* Centre Wellington Watercart

Thanks to a successful and positive partnership of major festival groups and the Township, a refurbished water cart has been jointly purchased by the Fergus Scottish Festival, Riverfest Elora, Fergus Fall Fair and the Elora Festival along with the Township to provide free municipal water for festivals and events in Centre Wellington.​  

The cart has four water bottle fillers, four drinking fountains and meets accessibility requirements.  The cart is on wheels and will hook directly into a municipal water spigot.  If you are interested in renting the water cart for your festival or event please fill out the Watercart Application Form or contact Elizabeth Bender​ at  Please see photos of the cart below under our inventory section.
