The Board of the Grace is pleased to announce that Marshall Feit will be beginning a full year term as manager starting in September 2019.

The Grace at Creamery Square, Tatamagouche

CREAMERY SQUARE  Tatamagouche has a rich association with the arts. Founded in 1956, the annual Nova Scotia Festival of the Arts attracted thousands of visitors to the area until 1967 when, due to its success, the festival was moved to a larger location. Between 1980 and 1995, the dramatic musical productions of Dr. Elizabeth (Betty) Murray depicted the history of Tatamagouche and highlighted local talent and enthusiasm for the performing arts. We hope to continue this tradition today.

Creamery Square Voted the "Top Area Landmark"

Congratulations to Tatamagouche Creamery Square for being voted the "Top Area Landmark" for The Light's 2017 Readers' Choice Awards! There is so much to explore in Creamery Square. The Grace Jollymore Joyce Arts Centre houses a 170-seat auditorium that plays host to live concerts, theatre productions, and open mic nights. In addition, the Ice House Gallery displays stunning visual art exhibitions by local, regional, and international artists. The Tatamagouche Boat Shop is the perfect place to watch some beautiful woodworking, especially on the outdoor Senator's Stage during the summer months. The Margaret Fawcett Norrie Heritage Centre is the place to discover Tatamagouche's local heritage, including the Brule Fossil exhibit, the Sunrise Trail Museum, the Anna Swan room, and the North Shore Archives. Finally, the Tatamagouche Farmers' Market is the perfect place to buy some local produce, pastries, and crafts on Saturday mornings in the summer. There's something for everyone in Creamery Square!

2017 Arts Programming

Jake Duggan Tatamagouche

At the Grace, we're working hard to bring you a great season of arts programming. We kicked off 2017 by holding a free CD release concert for local country singer Jake Duggan. The concert, standing room only, was a huge success - the entire community came out to support Jake! (Watch a video of their fantastic encore here.)

In addition to our regular Thursdays at the Grace events, including Open Mic Night and Trivia Night, we're beginning to roll out the 2018 Creamery Square Performing Arts Series. So far, we're thrilled to announce that Addison Locke, Celtic Rant, Alycia Putnam, Sean McCann, Unforeseen, Keith Mullins, and Tomas Kubinek will be performing at the Grace this summer. Advance tickets for all events are available here.
