Elora Festival's 40th Anniversary
This funding is for the marketing of the “Elora Festival's 40th Anniversary”, enhanced programming taking place July 12 to 28, 2019 in four venues in Elora: Gambrel Barn, St. John’s Church, Wellington County Museum and Knox Presbyterian Church. Anniversary programming will feature 30 presentations across two events.
