Camden Opera House

Opened in 1894.  On the National Register of Historic Places.  The Camden Opera House includes a 500 seat auditorium and four conference and meeting rooms owned, managed, and supported financially by the Town of Camden, Maine.  We produce, sponsor and host events that supplement and expand the cultural, social and economic life of our community.

A performance center for all, we hosted approximately 26,000 patrons last year, serving residents of all ages from Camden and the surrounding areas, and drawing visitors from throughout the world.  Those patrons come for a wide variety of performances, concerts, theatre and national and international conferences, having an economic impact on the area of more than $5 million.   On oru 100th anniversary in 1994, the opera House was renovated and restored to it's original grandeur.  Over the past decade, the Opera House has expanded and upgraded its services and technical capacity.  We also host over 200 town meetings and events annually.  

The Opera House is both an arts presenter and also offers the spaces for rental to individuals, groups, businesses, nonprofits and schools at affordable sliding scale rates.
