Hillside Summer Festival 2017
July 14 – 16
Send a Family to Hillside!
Give the gift of music, dance, drumming, and workshops to families, couples or individuals who live in our neighbourhoods but may not be able to come to Hillside.
We work with partner organizations such as Women in Crisis, Guelph Neighbourhood Support Coalition, Children's Foundation, Family & Children's Services, and groups who support Syrian families—organizations whose mandates are to provide care, shelter, pain relief, education, and all-around brightness to people who live with many challenges. We give these organizations the passes and they identify the people whose lives could benefit from a community celebration in the sun. Participating in arts and culture helps reduce loneliness, isolation, and alienation, enhances social understanding, builds cohesion, and fosters community development and civic participation.
