Nestled among the trees on the banks of the Eramosa River, Rivermead is imbued with historic charm. Built in 1861 by the Methodist congregation of Eden Mills, the stone chapel has contributed to the village’s social life as a Wesleyan Church from 1861 to 1921 and as a United Church from 1926 to 2014. Today, the building continues to play a vital role in the community as the Festival’s headquarters and a wonderful venue for the presentation of readings, workshops and other literary and artistic events.

When not in use by the Festival, we offer our facilities for rent for a variety of purposes: meetings, seminars, workshops, small corporate events, art exhibits, and wedding ceremonies.
