Discover the sights, sounds and tastes of the Guelph & District Multicultural Festival!

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



The annual Guelph & District Multicultural Festival is a free, three-day event held at Riverside Park in Guelph. Each year we welcome local craft vendors, performers and food vendors to share their passion for art, culture, and cuisine.

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. This approach ensures that everyone who comes to the Festival can discover and share in the tastes, sights, and sounds of the city’s diverse population.

Can you believe that in 2018, we welcomed over 25,000 visitors?! We even managed to catch the attention of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
