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 2017 Creamery Square Performing Arts Series. So far, we're thrilled to announce that Dave Gunning, Shirley Jackson & Her Good Rockin' Daddys, Scott Cleveland, and the West Branch Singers will be playing at the Grace this summer. Advance tickets for all events are available here.

Operations Manager: Malory Beazley

Oh, hey, that's me! As the new Operations Manager for the Grace Jollymore Joyce Arts Centre, I was featured in this fantastic piece by The Light. Wow, I'm feeling so honoured (and slightly sheepish). Read about some of my visions for the Grace in the article below.

A big thanks to Peter Martyn, George Klass, and Raissa Tetanish for reaching out! Can't wait to get more involved in the community.
