The Village Cenotaph and a community gathering space

Blyth Memorial Hall is a living memorial to soldiers’ lives lost. A place to gather, a place to celebrate …

Home to the Blyth Festival

Award-winning professional theatre Company that produces primarily new plays that reflect a rural audience … an extraordinary history of development in this small rural village in southwestern Ontario.


Since 1975, the Blyth Festival Theatre has put farmers and rural Canadians centre stage, telling our stories, sharing our history, and celebrating our way of life. A fully professional theatre, in the heart of Ontario’s bread-basket, the Blyth Festival’s ingenuity, tenacity, and creativity has irrevocably reinvigorated the region’s very imagination.
