The Venue
​Elora Centre for the Arts, 75 Melville Street. Elora, Ont.
Quite literally held in the Yard on the property of this wonderful historic 1850’s stone building just around the corner from the Main street and shops.  Last year we featured 45 tented vendors outside in the Yard and inside the gallery.  The event also includes live musical performances by local musicians curated by the Elora Acoustic Cafe, food trucks and kids interactive area.  Parking is available at and around the venue and just a short walk to the wonderfully quaint village and gorgeous view from the Elora Mill. It’s a great weekend destination spot for sight seeing and shopping for unique treasures.

Elora Centre for the Arts presents:

Full-colour postcards and posters are part of this largely spread marketing campaign. Other advertising includes radio and online promotions, community listings and news sources on several sites.
