Wellesley map graphic

Northwest of Waterloo, you’ll find the Township of Wellesley.

Country living at its finest, enjoy the best of both worlds with the quiet and calm of the country but still having access to the larger urban conveniences in Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge. Scenic and picturesque country roads show historic Mennonite farming methods and beautiful sunsets.

Several villages make up the Township of Wellesley, including St. Clements, Hawkesville, Crosshill, Bamberg, Linwood, and of course, the town of Wellesley itself. These close-knit communities offer laid-back living to residents, many of which are new to the area or have lived here for several generations.

Enjoy food, furniture, crafts and churches in these villages, as well as festivals including the annual Wellesley Apple Butter and Cheese Festival every September. This famous festival includes street markets, a classic car show, farm tours, live music, and of course, delicious food. The Wellesley Fall Fair is another annual festival enjoyed by residents and those coming in from surrounding areas.

As surrounding cities have less and less land to build on, new development is booming in these small towns. Wellesley is growing with several new communities bordering on existing established neighbourhoods. Many families choose to live in Wellesley and commute to KW for work to enjoy country living while getting better bang for their buck. With a new recreation center, new housing options and an active community calendar, these charming towns are becoming a bigger draw for those looking to escape the city.

Wellesley is an exciting place to be right now, and is only going to get better.

What we love about

The Rich History

Settled in the mid-1800s, the majority of the original settlers in Wellesley Township were of German heritage. Many of the residents today still speak Deitsh, the German dialect brought to the country by their ancestors. Today you'll find many businesses still carrying on traditions from yesteryears, including custom woodworking and quilt making.

The Apple Butter + Cheese Festival

Running since 1976, the Wellesley Apple Butter and Cheese festival was formed to promote the town of Wellesley and has grown to be one of Waterloo Region's most popular events. It is always on the last Saturday in September and features delicious food including pancakes, apple fritters, and schnitzel on a bun, to name a few. Enjoy an antique car display, horseshoe and cornhole tournaments, craft vendors and live entertainment.
