The Avening Hall (or ACC North as some like to call it) is a little old hall in the hamlet of Avening, about an hour north of Toronto on Airport Road and a short paddle down the Mad River from Creemore, Ontario. It has a bowling alley in the basement, a picture of the Queen on the wall behind the stage, a main hall clad from floor to ceiling in wood and a faithful following of fans who like to see great old halls used for the reason they were built. That means great music, great parties and great fun (as well as the odd community dinner).

Over the years, the Avening Hall and its promoters have hosted Neko Case, Sarah Harmer, Elliott Brood, Fred Eaglesmith, Luther Wright & the Wrongs, the Silver Hearts, James McKenty & the Spades, Sunparlour Players, Matthew Barber, Jenny Whiteley, Carolyn Mark, NQ Arbuckle, Hank & Lily, Hayden, Willie P. Bennett, Oh Susanna, Joel Plaskett, Hawksley Workman  and the legendary Bogoslowski Wood Exchange.

Stay tuned, there are many hipshaking shows to come… is owned and operated by The Creemore Echo with the express purpose of promoting concerts at the Avening Community Centre and other facilities in the Creemore area.
