Our Next Performing Arts Series Event !
"Dance For All Projects" is a mixed program that showcases highlights from major Ballet Jorgen productions, such as Romeo & Juliet, The Nutcracker, their smash hit Anne of Green Gables – The Ballet®, along with exciting new contemporary works by Canadian choreographers.

CBJ’s extensive repertoire of full-length ballets, children’s ballets and shorter contemporary works has enabled the Company to become Canada’s most active touring arts organization and, to date, has reached 253 different communities in Canada and 60 in the US !

A 2022-23 Series that sees the return of World-Class Singer-Songwriters, Ballet, Opera, Jazz, Symphonic and Chamber Music to Wolfville!
(August 29, 2022) The inaugural BACK TO THE GARDENS took place during the August 13-14 weekend on the Acadia University campus.
Due to adverse weather conditions, the festival was moved indoors at the eleventh hour to a “greened up” Convocation Hall. Although the big stage erected in the beautiful Harriet Irving Botanical Gardens remained elusive, Back to the Gardens presented a wonderful community of Artists from near and far, coming together in harmony to create and perform. They delivered beautifully!
The Acadia Performing Arts Series thanks its Back to the Gardens partners within Acadia, and its major founding community partners, Just Us Coffee, EOS Natural Foods and Rewind 89.3, for their support. Major thanks also to the BTTG production team and to the community of volunteers who made the weekend’s concerts unfold perfectly. Last but not least, kudos to all the remarkable Artists who performed at Back to the Gardens. As the audience can attest, musical magic was made!
As September begins, the Acadia Performing Arts Series now invites you to Acadia’s Festival Theatre and Convocation Hall for its annual Fall to Spring Series. It begins on October 1 with “la Grande Dame” of Canadian jazz, pianist Lorraine Desmarais and her trio.
Series’ subscriptions at a very advantageous price, as well as tickets for each event, are available at the Acadia Box Office.
