Have fun and be a part of something bigger than yourself by joining the Earlville Opera House Volunteers. Everyone can find a place in our busy multi-arts center located in beautiful downtown Earlville.
We have two art Galleries, an Arts Café, an ARTISAN Gift Shop, and an elegant 300 seat Theater from the 1890's where summer performances include Folk, Country, Cajun, Celtic and Blues performers, as well as theater productions and more.
Volunteering is a way that we reconnect with friends and neighbors and remember why we choose to live in these lovely hills and valleys. Good folks, a beautiful countryside and treasures like the Earlville Opera House can lift our spirits and keep us focused on better days ahead.
Volunteers make all the difference to small non-profit organizations like the EOH. We need you. Our hope is that every volunteer gets as much from the experience as they give.
