As a Parry Sound resident, I make use of the Stockey Centre every month. The facility may be commonly thought of as a concert venue, but it serves as a multi-purpose facility where young and old alike can enjoy music, theatre, movies, school trips and speakers. I've also attended retirement parties, funerals and weddings here. Also housing the Bobby Orr... More

We go to the Stockey for the Festival of the Sound - but the winter shows are worth the drive too. The Festival of the Sound is the best summer music event in the North. Great and varies program but it's the Stockey Centre thaat makes it all work. Try for Mezzanine seats close to the stage if you really... More

Hubby and I have been here for two shows. Both awesome! Not a bad seat in the house. We saw George Canyon the first time and Marty Stuart earlier in May. I am in a wheelchair and those spaces are amazing! Staff very helpful. Great parking. Can't say enough good things about this place!

It would be difficult to find another performing arts centre that can match the wonderful acoustics in the Stockey Centre. A small, intimate venue that features a wide variety of entertainment -- everything from a classical music festival in the summer, to book readings by authors, to rock bands, country bands, etc. etc.

Nothing to dislike - amazing acoustics! This concert, and other attractions/events held here is incredibly intimate. While not the best when comes to sight lines from the sides closest to the stage it has some many upsides that it is not a problem.

I really enjoyed my visit to Parry Sound recently, including the travelling Newfoundland Kitchen Party at the Stockey Centre. The centre is really well set up, with good acoustics and a range of comfortable and attractive seating options. It's right beside the water, although I didn't explore that option due to the weather! Staff were very welcoming and helpful. The... More

The wood and granite stone interior of the concert hall is not only visually impressive, it offers wonderful acoustics in a setting that mimics the natural geography of the area. Having attended three performances at the Stockey Centre, the ticket prices have been quite inexpensive compared to venues in larger urban areas. The staff were very polite and pleasant and... More

Attended Bruce Cockburn concert last night and was once again amazed by the great sound from this venue. It wasn't too tough either to sit outside on their patio before the concert and watch the sun start to set. With seats for only 500 people you get none of the elbowing and jostling that is a common experience at Toronto... More

The acoustics in the Centre are great! Went to a Christmas concert there - full house- and had an enjoyable evening.
