Elora is Under Construction

We are still open for Business.

As the Village of Elora continues to make preparations in anticipation of the reopening of the Historic Elora Mill Inn, there are many changes coming to town.
Elora is under construction in order to provide more shops, stores, and attractions, as well as improve roads, parking, and much more. Currently the Main Street in Elora - MILL ST, is under construction.

There are many fences, trucks, and workers and they are definitely blocking Mill Street West in Elora. While vehicles cannot drive down the street, there is still plenty of space available for people to walk down the side walks.

All of the shops, stores, and restaurants in Elora are still open for business to serve you.
Do not let the big red fences stop you from coming to Elora for a visit with the family, and take in the beauty of our quaint little town. Enjoy all that Elora has to offer, enjoy the great unique shopping, enjoy a meal at one of our many fine restaurants, enjoy an adult beverage at one of our great pubs, and stop in to your favourite Sweet Shop for a little something to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Come on Down and #VISITELORA.
