Culturally, the community offers a number of fine restaurants and unique shopping experiences. The community supports many local artists, both visual and performing, with a number of local art studios, and several programs and venues for performing arts. Orangeville boasts its own orchestra, and annually hosts the Jazz Festival, drawing thousands of visitors from across Canada each year. Theatre Orangeville is in its 22nd season with performances at the historic Opera House. We are fortunate to be within an hour's drive of Toronto, with all the arts and sports events it has to offer, without having to cope with the congestion of, not to mention the expense of living in, Toronto.
