The Battleford Opera House was built in 1912 and was the venue of choice for many community events -  school plays, high school graduations, live theatre, musical talent nights, Christmas concerts, dances, and firemen's banquets.  


In 1965, fire damaged the Opera House and the administrative offices on the building's ground floor.  Renovations saw the reopening of the administrative offices on the ground floor, however, the Opera House remained scarred by the fire.


The Historic Battleford Lions Club started The Operun to raise money for the restoration of the Opera House.  The Operun was a success, however, the restoration of the Opera House has stalled.  The Operun continues to raise money for local initiatives like paving the local walking trails  and continues to promote the beauty and history of our community.
