The Hillside Summer Festival and Hillside Inside (February) are three-day, multi-stage events with a broad artistic vision that emphasizes diversity: of culture, of musical heritage and style, of age, geography and influence.
Set in a beautiful, accessible conservation area with campgrounds on Guelph Lake, our summer festival is world-renowned as one of Canada’s most progressive, environmentally-conscious, completely non-commercial community celebrations. We create a village on Guelph Lake Island that we fill with music, dance, drumming, food, crafts, and more.
“Music wise it was amazing! So many different kinds of music and venues. The schedule goes all day and night… I would definitely return and recommend the festival to friends. We had a blast!”Festival Attendee
