Arts and Culture

We have a thriving creative scene that contributes to a vibrant and exciting community for both residents and visitors.

The visual arts, created by our talented artists, ranging from painting to wood carving are often displayed in our local businesses, public spaces, galleries and special events throughout the Town.

Music of all genres and styles is being composed, recorded and performed throughout the community by gifted musicians and songwriters of all ages and backgrounds.

Ellena's Café and The Old Church Theatre host the popular Starstop Concert Series. Audiences can gather and enjoy musical guests from all over the globe as well as our own gifted musicians as they perform in a welcoming setting.


Check out our Events and Festivals page for information on our Music by the River event.

Greater Napanee has multiple dance studios, as well as a booming community theatre group that are constantly amazing and entertaining audiences.

The volunteer Advisory Committee's mandate is to promote arts and culture within the community and to help market the talents of our town regionally, provincially and beyond.

This awards program recognizes outstanding contributions to arts and culture in our community including literary, musical, performance and visual arts.

The 'Pallet'able Art Program is a venture to introduce more art and beauty into our community. Local artists paint on wooden industrial pallets which are displayed around Greater Napanee for everyone to enjoy!

Communities in Bloom is a Canadian non-profit organization committed to fostering civic pride, environmental responsibility and beautification through community involvement and the challenge of a national program, with focus on enhancing green spaces in communities. For more information, please see the Communities in Bloom website.

Greater Napanee joined the Communities in Bloom program in 2013. The Town's mission is "raising awareness of everyone's surroundings through tidiness, environmental action, heritage conservation, urban forestry, landscape, turf & groundcovers, floral displays and mostly, community involvement." Visit the Communities in Bloom - Town of Greater Napanee Facebook page for more information on how the Town participates in the program.

The Town of Greater Napanee and Communities in Bloom are recognizing gardens around the community!

A majar goal of the Lennox Community Theatre is to foster interest, participation and skill as well as education about the theatrical arts.

The theatre seats 80 people and produces five productions of a variety of genres from September to June. All shows are operated by volunteers, including a 13-member Lennox Community Theatre Board of Directors. 

Take a look at the theatre's playbill. Unless otherwise noted, evening performances begin at 8:00 p.m. and matinee performances (m) begin at 2:00 p.m. Tickets for performances can be bought at the door of the theatre or at Gray's IDA Drug Store.
