THANK YOU GUELPH! You have once again showed us a loving and supportive community and we’re so thankful you were able to join us in our 33rd year! We’d like to thank all of our dedicated volunteers for committing their time and efforts to making this Festival successful. We’d also like to thank all of the craft, commercial and food vendors, all of our loving sponsors, and everyone who performed during the Festival.

We would like to thank the Board of Directors for their dedication and commitment to the Festival, and give an extra special shout out to Meher Parakh, volunteer Executive Director, for making this event a grand success!


Join us from June 7-9, 2019 for our 33rd annual Guelph & District Multicultural Festival at Riverside Park. The 2019 Festival will bring you more performers, food, fun and of course – more opportunities to celebrate Multiculturalism. 

Our Festival is 100% sponsored by local businesses and grants. Each year, we rely on the generous support from our community to keep our Festival alive and free to the public. Help us continue the Festival for generations to enjoy, donate to our Go Fund Me campaign!
