Rural Style Theatre Venue


Once upon a time, just outside the village of Orono ...  livestock farmers would gather each Wednesday evening at the Cow Palace (then known as the Durham County Sales Arena) to buy and sell livestock. 

In the early 1990s the practice moved to a bigger space in Lindsay, ON leaving behind an amazingly unique structure..

I purchased the property and building in 2001, to create a workshop and studio for my Leather Art.

I kept the arena intact and after a deep cleaning and some fresh paint, created a intimate setting with exceptional acoustic quality.

Now the arena is available by special request for concerts, movie screenings, film and sound production, theatre, and workshops. 

Let's talk about your next project. Contact me anytime.
