About the Festival

The Guelph Resilience Festival Celebrates It's 8th Year!
A celebration of community resiliency in Guelph

What does it mean to be resilient? When talking about resiliency in terms of a community, we believe it means that we are well connected, able to get our needs met locally, and can learn to connect with the people around us. Resiliency means that we, as a community, are strong, reliable, and self-sufficient.
In Guelph, we are lucky to have an amazing community of people who value resilience and work together to create that strength that comes with being resilient! Are you interested in learning more? Come check out our events, share some stories, and make some friends!
