How to celebrate 150th Canada Day (Guelph, ON)


First of all, this is our 7th of 150th post. Time is flying so fast, I didn’t even realize that I am already on the 7th post.


This time we will share details of “Royal City” called Guelph with you. This Royal City is another gem in Southwestern Ontario.





One especially relevant thing you should know is that this city has lowest crime rate in Canada, clean environment and high standard of living. Due to these specialties, this city consistently gets rated as one of the best cities to live in Canada.


Local Attractions


  • Downtown Guelph is an active attraction. Many streets are lined with Victoria Era buildings, which are of a century old.
  • Guelph Civic Museum. Here you can find pictures, films and other antique materials related to the historic development of the city (in addition to other cool stuff).
  • St. Patrick’s Ward
  • Goldie Mill ruins. Goldie Family owned this mill. In 1953 a fire destroyed the building. It now serves as a venue for outdoor public and private events.

  1. This is indeed a lovely place to celebrate. I am fascinated by the Market Square, what a nice place to chill with the family. I am sure it would be a great experience.

  2. Reading and learning… I had never heard of Guelph, but it seems to be a very nice place. And I love your series of how to celebrate 150th Canada day. I guess I should visit Canada more often!

  3. This is a nice series. I guess this is the year to be in Canada. I am sure there would be a lot of year-around festivities.

  4. This is a really cool way to feature the small cities of Canada. I want to slowly explore more Canada. I would love to explore a little of Guelph if I ever get the chance to visit.

  5. I’ve never heard of Guleph, though I have been to Vancouver and I loved it so much I want to go back. Maybe I’ll go to Guleph as well when I return.

  6. I’ve still never been to Canada! I really must go one day. I would have loved to have gone during the year of this celebration. I would love to do a Canadian road trip one day.

  7. Guleph is new to me and it seems the place is stuffed with lots of sights to enjoy. The bulleted info on attraction there is really helpful.
