Creative Spark In the Yard

Elora Centre for the Arts presents Creative Spark in the Yard in early July each year.  This outdoor and indoor event showcases artists, artisans and makers from across Ontario with live music, food trucks and kids activities.  In 2019, the weekend event welcomed 2,000 visitors.  The 2019 event celebrated the 17th annual summer weekend event for ECFTA!

Quite literally held in the Yard at Elora Centre for the Arts, a historic 1800’s stone building with gallery just around the corner from the Main street and shops of downtown Elora.

This wonderful juried handcrafted weekend event features between 40 – 50 vendors.  Live musical performances by local musicians, and delicious food trucks round out this wonderful summer event.  The site is steps away from gorgeous Grand River views and the newly renovated Elora Mill.  The annual event is a collaboration between the Elora Centre for the Arts and Creative Spark Workshops (Carolyn McLeod-McCarthy).  Click here for more information about Carolyn and Creative Spark Workshops.

We are thrilled to announce that the 2022 event will take place on July 9 & 10, 2022.  Mark your calendars!  For more event details please click here.
