The Clayton Opera House serves as a year-round center for cultural and community events. The 1903 building underwent a $3.2 million historic preservation in 2007. Presenting a variety of entertainment from local to nationally recognized artists, the Opera House is a great place to catch a show.

Located in downtown Clayton on Riverside Drive, the Clayton Opera House, a nationally registered historic place, is a stately brick structure overlooking the St. Lawrence River. As the performance center of the 1000 Islands, the Opera House is a magnet for thousands of visitors every year, both audiences at performances of nationally acclaimed artists and attendees at community events and private celebrations. The revived Clayton Opera House has helped promote greater economic activity in this beautiful region and is an important source of local pride. With a $3,275,000 renovation in 2007, the two-story performance hall and third floor ballroom were returned to their original luster.
