Grand Re-Opening Celebration!

Free Events
August 26 

Join us as we celebrate your NEW Chester Playhouse!

In June 2021, the Chester Playhouse caught fire near the end of a major restoration project.  After two years of rebuilding, your Chester Playhouse finally re-opens with a community celebration! 

This afternoon festival-style street party has something for everyone!  Join us for a parade from the Chester Legion, down Queen St to the rebuilt Playhouse, where we’ll hold an official ribbon cutting ceremony on the new building.  

Following that, we celebrate! Bring a lawn chair, and enjoy outdoor performances by a stellar lineup of incredible musicians, including Chester favourites Dark & Stormy,  with some special surprises along the way. In the breaks, wander local stores for special offers, or browse booths featuring local artisans. Grab a bite at nearby restaurants and enjoy the town! Most exciting: sign up for a tour of the new theatre building, led by our welcoming committee, and discover your new home for fun, inspiring live events!  

This community celebration is free for all.  Bring the whole family, lawn chairs, and sunscreen… we’ll provide the smiles!
