Arts and Culture in Cornwall

The growing arts community in Cornwall and Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry is rich in talent and vision. Local artists are readily accessible through area galleries, playhouses and concert halls.

Live music can be found in every hamlet and village in the region. Informal concerts are offered through church or community halls and often feature a rotating lineup of musicians celebrating the region’s Gaelic and Francophone roots. Many area restaurants and pubs also feature live music on the weekends. More formal presentations can be found at established venues such as the St. Lawrence Acoustic Stage in Morrisburg, Aultsville Theatre and the Port Theatre in Cornwall. You can also experience music in the open air at Lamoureux Park and at St. Raphael’s Ruins. Check our website for notices of upcoming performances.

If you enjoy a little entertainment in your life, plan on arranging your visit around a performance at the Upper Canada Playhouse in Morrisburg, the Old Town Hall Theatre in Winchester or in Cornwall by one of several theatre groups. Local theatre productions feature some very talented local actors and musicians and thought provoking set-design and direction, and are very popular with visitors and residents alike.

You can also take home a piece of art with you by visiting the growing number of artist studios that dot the landscape. Explore the rich colours of acrylic, oil and watercolour on canvas, forms brought to life in wood, metal and clay or even try your hand at creating your own glass sculpture through the Priest’s Mill Glassworks in Alexandria.
