About The Event Organizer

Meaford Hall

In 1909, the town of Meaford eagerly gathered at the new Town Hall and Opera House on Nelson and Sykes Streets. The construction of this grand building, designed by local architect James Ellis, marked a significant moment for the community. As the cornerstone was laid in 1908, Mayor J.W. Horsley proudly declared that Meaford Hall would be a symbol of progress and prosperity for generations to come.

Over the years, Meaford Hall served multiple purposes, including housing the council chambers, town offices, courtroom, library, and community meeting spaces. However, it was the second-floor Opera House that truly captured the town's heart. The Opera House became a cultural hub, hosting plays, graduations, concerts, and famous speakers.

The building endured some neglect but was ultimately saved through a restoration project in the early 2000s, funded by grants and community efforts.

Today, Meaford Hall Arts & Cultural Centre stands as an icon of downtown Meaford, a testament to the town's history and commitment to arts and culture.
