Welcome

Great Acoustics and Intimacy

We were strongly advised by audience and performers alike not to mess with the intimate feel and great acoustics of our auditorium and we listened.

Unique venue in East Margaretsville

Bringing the best in live performance to our extended community of the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia.

About the Evergreen Theatre

The Evergreen Theatre  is the sole project of the Fundy Folk Association; a not-for-profit, volunteer-run organization with a committed Board of Directors, whose mandate is to offer quality arts programming/cultural enrichment/social and volunteer opportunities to our rural community by presenting professional and amateur acts from a wide variety of performing arts, and by providing a performance venue, meeting and workshop space to the local community. The re-purposed 1860s-era  Baptist church on the North Mountain above the Annapolis Valley brings a steady stream of professional artists from Nova Scotia, the rest of Canada and abroad to a rural area otherwise lacking a dedicated performance establishment. In its 20-year history,

The Evergreen has developed from a local amateur talent event to a professional venue known across Nova Scotia, and further afield, as a surprising jewel in the travelling performance circuit around the Maritimes

A little history…….

 

For the first 140-plus years of its life our building was the Evergreen Baptist Church serving the small community of East Margaretsville. In 1999 it was decided that its days as a church were ended and it was offered to the Community. A volunteer-built stage, cast-off seating and surplus theatre drapery have transformed the Evergreen into an intimate, acoustically superior-space. Our reputation as a warm and welcoming place with enthusiastic audiences continues to draw performers from across Canada and beyond.

After 15 years of successful operations, we finally took the plunge to move our charming but quite rudimentary venue from the 19th to the 21st century.
Five years later we have a head-turning new addition with all the basic amenities. And we are not stopping there, as we have great plans to take advantage of our great new space.

 

Come and be part of it.
