Cane Mill Road

August 29, at 7:30pm

Think of a young Steep Canyon Rangers, Infamous Stringdusters, or Nickel Creek; then, mix in the on-stage energy of Billy Strings and the homespun rapport of Balsam Range, and you have Cane Mill Road!  Rapidly rising in the bluegrass scene, the Billboard-charting artists are the youngest to garner an IBMA Momentum Band-of-the-Year nomination (2018), a feat they repeated in 2019.  




1891 Run

A 5K Run/Walk to benefit the Opera House! The Run starts at 9am and is immediately followed by the Walk.  Both start and end at the Opera House/Village Hall.  The race utilizes chip timing and this year, is one of the races included in the Chautauqua Striders Athletic Club Runner of the Year Series!  Register HERE

Art & Architecture on Screen: Hermitage - The Power of Art

August 27, at 7:00pm 

This spectacular cinematic production tours through St. Petersburg’s State Hermitage Museum, a wonderful complex of buildings with the largest collection of paintings in the world, to retrace two and a half centuries.  Audiences pass through the magnificent interiors that provided a meeting point for foreign artists, architects and intellectuals creating connections through art and culture.  The history of the museum is marked by the acquisitions of the enlightened Empress Catherine II, whose personality has continued to fascinate art historians and critics over the centuries.
