For the first time in Fairmont Opera House history, we are holding a Summer Series! This series will feature community groups such as Civic Summer Theatre, and Childrens Theatre, great concerts, and engaging community events.
As we continue to progress to our goal of being the mecca of entertainment in Southern Minnesota and Northern Iowa, a natural step forward was to host events and concerts throughout the entire year. However, we could not do this without the support of you, the patrons. Thank you for coming to events, sponsoring programming, volunteering, and so much more. This new series is a testament to the strength of our supporters.
Here are the events that we have already scheduled for this summer…and there may be more to come!
