Drayton Festival Theatre

Surrounded by rural countryside, a visit to the Drayton Festival Theatre offers a pleasant drive along quiet roads where common sights include farm-gate signs and roadside stands that will tempt you to stop and make an impromptu purchase of fresh produce, flowers and maple syrup. Occasionally you'll pass an Old Order Mennonite horse-drawn buggy that so eloquently reminds us of life's simple pleasures.

The Drayton Festival Theatre is a renovated 1902 Opera House, boasting wonderful acoustics. This former Town hall has a rich history of entertaining audiences with the finest talent in professional theatre.

Located only 35 minutes from Guelph and Kitchener-Waterloo, the Drayton Festival Theatre offers a scenic drive through rolling farmland and quaint villages.

When visiting the Drayton Festival Theatre, skip the line at intermission and pre-order your refreshments upon arrival.
