Family Fun

Family time is important. Spend it someplace where you can truly relax and have an experience to remember. Load up the car, mini-van or truck and head on up to Elora and Fergus.

Here are a few family fun suggestions:

Elora and Fergus are home to many scenic parks some with great look outs to the majestic Grand and Irvine Rivers.

Need a fun place for food? Pick up your ready-made picnic or build your own from the Elora Bread Trading Company or Dar's Country Market in Elora, Frabert's Fresh Food and Fergies Fine Foods in Fergus.​

Get in touch with the great outdoors in Elora and Fergus. We have plenty of unique activities to enjoy, like ziplining across the gorge, hiking or biking along a trailtubing through the gorge or boating and fishing in our lake or rivers. Float on the Grand with Elora Raft Rides - guided tours or DIY all from the heart of downtown Elora. 

Learn about our past at the Wellington County Museum & Archives. Take advantage of their drop in Wednesday afternoons through the summer, plus a variety of festivals and events year-round. With interactive displays, scavenger hunts and beautiful gardens, there's something for every family member to enjoy.

Explore local art at the Elora Centre for the Arts. Its two galleries are open 7 days a week.

Catch a movie at The Gorge Cinema. Nestled in the heart of downtown Elora, the Gorge Cinema is a charming, privately owned movie theatre. Housed in an 1860s heritage building, the cinema features all the latest movies, state-of-the-art digital projection and Dolby surround sound.

If theatre is your flavour, the newly restored Fergus Grand Theatre is just the zing, featuring live performances throughout the year in all its resplendent, historic glory. It is also the proud home of Elora Community Theatre
