May is always an exciting month in Cornwall. The snow melts, the weather warms up, April showers give way to May showers, and a whole slew of exciting events come to town to welcome yet another wonderful summer. This year, the action kicks off on the very first day of May. Yes, that’s right, this May 1st, two awesome and original events will roll into town, and because they both take place just moments from our hotel, they’re both very much yours to enjoy!

Here are the details!

Art Battle | May 1

For art enthusiasts, this is not one to miss. It’s Art Battle, the immensely popular, semi-competitive live art show that has taken the scene by storm. Hosted by The Social Conference and Event Centre, which is just a short drive from our hotel, this event kicks off at 7:00pm and costs just $20 to attend, with discounts available for students and seniors. And of course, there will also be plenty of art available for sale. Don’t miss the excitement!

Cornwall Comedy Festival |May 1-3

Whatever your ailment, laughter is the best medicine. Don’t believe us? Go find out for yourself at this hilarious event! The Cornwall Comedy Festival, which runs for the first three days of May, is hosted by the Aultsville Theatre. Just who will take the stage at this side-splitting festival? Names like Derek Seguin, Mike MacDonald, and the hilarious Bowser and Blue. Tickets for this one are just $25. Get yours before they’re gone!

Yes, this May, the fun begins right away, as two exciting events kick off on the very first day of the new month. Why not book a room at our centrally located Cornwall hotel and enjoy all that this beautiful slice of Ontario has to offer? We look forward to welcoming you to town!

Cornwall is home to a wide variety of great entertainment, and there’s nowhere hotter to have a seat than in the Aultsville Theatre. If you’re in town this April, be sure to check out some of these upcoming shows.
Buzz – April 18th

As the group would tell you, the word “Buzz” has two main definitions: “excitement over novelty”, and “a sound produced by vibrating the lips”. However, this group has added a third: “brass quintet”. And Buzz—the brass quintet in question—can do this because they fit the first two definitions so perfectly. Through exciting, modern arrangements of old classics, the group has combined their efforts with a pianist and harpist to create lively theatrical works guaranteed to entertain. Tickets start at $25.

Greasemania – April 19th

Grease is quite possibly the most endearing and enduring musicals of all time, and it’s still gracing stages around the world today. This is because the Broadway show and movie combine a great story with great music, and it’s this great music that is at the heart of Greasemania. With the great cast, costumes, and stageplay, you’ll feel like you’re in the movie as you take in some of the classic musical’s best songs. Tickets are $48.50.

Steve Patterson – April 25th

If music just isn’t your thing, then this is surely the option for you. Steve Patterson—best known as host of the CBC radio show The Debaters—is back on the circuit after a highly successful national tour. You’ll now be able to see Steve in all his hilarity on his new tour, “I Laugh Therefore I Think” right here in Cornwall. Steve is consistently labeled by nation-wide newspapers and even personalities such as Rick Mercer as one of, if not the funniest man in Canada. If you’re a fan of comedy, this is not one to miss. Tickets are $41.50.

Whether you’re a fan of buzzing brass, slick musicals, or rollicking comedy, Cornwall and the Aultsville Theatre have something for you. And after your show is over, be sure to stop by the Ramada Cornwall for accommodations that encompass both luxury and value. Book your room today. We look forward to your visit!

Hugo Mobility, in association with La Plume Moderne, are proud (sort of) to present Participation’s Music Hall Theatre Production, the First World Premiere of Syllabification from a Sycophant, starring APRIL SHOWERS and MAY FLOWERS (if they are available).

Participation is a curious quartet of musicians—Voice (and virtuoso Kazoo), Clarinet, Tenor Ukelele and Tuba—but what better way to bring alive the superbly singable songs of the “Paleolithic” (that is, Rag Time and Jazz) eras of the early 20th century? Anticipating that folk would be inspired to sing along, they chose their very name to serve as an invitation.

Syllabification from a Sycophant is a Multimedia Melange of Rag Time Music, Comedy and Images. Nothing naughty (except Bob’s Spotted Dick).

Are they any good?

“What a fun and entertaining troupe of skilled musicians accompanying the delicious, mellow voice of gorgeous Katie. Loved every minute!” – Katalin Kennedy

It may get a little chilly in Cornwall this time of year, but thankfully, there’s plenty of fun to be had indoors, thanks to a packed schedule of concerts over the coming weeks. Our charming Ontario town will host a variety of musical acts, across a breadth of genres, and hosted by a range of awesome venues. Here’s a preview of what’s to come!

An Evening with Harry Manx | March 7

On Saturday March 7, we welcome Harry Manx to our beautiful corner of Ontario. He’ll be playing at the Morrisburg Meeting Centre, which you’ll find just a half hours’ drive from our hotel—a perfect idea for a night out. Manx is known for his innovative “Mysticssippi” blues sound, that is, traditional blues, infused with a hypnotizing Indian raga influence. Get your tickets for this awesome hotel at Strung Out Guitars, just 9 minutes away from our hotel.

Sultans of String | March 28

Spanish flamenco, Arabic folk, Cuban rhythms, and French manouche gypsy-jazz—you’ll experience a sound influenced by all this and more when you attend a Sultan of Strings concert. Intrigued? Well, you’re in luck. The Sultans take the stage at St. Lawrence College’s Aultsville Theatre on March 28, as part of the Cornwall Concert Series Association. Get your tickets while you still can!

Chic Gamine | April 11

On April 11, Juno award-winning musical act Chic Gamine comes to Cornwall. Like Harry Manx, they’ll be taking the stage at the Morrisburg Meeting Centre, with tickets available at Strung Out Guitars. With rock n’ roll, Motown, and French pop influences, theirs is a sound that’s sure to get your feet tapping. Don’t miss your chance to catch this fantastic Canadian act!

There are some very interesting concerts coming to Cornwall over the coming weeks, and as a guest of our comfortable, centrally-located hotel, they’re all yours to discover. Book your stay today!

CAPE—the perfect acronym for Cornwall’s first comic convention: the Cornwall & Area Pop Event, which comes to the Benson Centre on April 18th. Now, we know, at just over two months off the convention is still a little ways away, but we want to give everybody fair warning, because his is not an event to miss! Over the last few months, its schedule has grown like The Incredible Hulk, expanding with the additions of celebrity appearances, special events, contests, and more. And in the two months between today and CAPE’s official kick off, you can expect that it’ll get even better. With that said, here’s what you can expect from the event so far!

First, as with any pop expo, you can expect some cool guest appearances from CAPE. On the list so far are two beloved stars of AMC’s Kevin Smith led show Comic Book Men, Ming Chen and Mike Zapcic. The pair will be on location for meet and greets, autographs, and more. In addition, CAPE will welcome industry professionals like voice actors and animators, other stars like comedians and professional athletes, and of course, a whole lot of cosplayers! Deadpool sightings are all but guaranteed.

In addition to its spectacular roster of guests, CAPE will boast a plethora of exhibitors, specializing in collectibles, clothing, gaming, delicious food and more.  Also on the schedule are some awesome musical performances from talented bands and artists, as well as an Elvis impersonator and “The Alison Wonderland Band,” an awesome Ontario tribute band.

Best of all, thanks to the Benson Centre serving as the event’s venue, all the CAPE fun will go down just moments from our conveniently located Cornwall hotel. That means you’ll have an easy time getting to the event, which runs from 10:00am to 6:00 pm on the day, and that you might just encounter some funky costumes under our roof.

Ticket info and updates on the events ever-expanding schedule can be found on CAPE’s website. Get your tickets before they’re gone (they’re expected to sell faster than the flash runs), and don’t forget to pick up your complimentary goodies at the event. T-shirts, lanyards and more are to be had!

And of course, when CAPE wraps up, head back to our hotel for excellent amenities (like free breakfast) and a great night’s sleep. We look forward to welcoming you to Cornwall for this exciting and groundbreaking event!
