The Syrup Factory got its start as a house concert venue in 2011. You may find out about concerts by signing up to the mailing list or joining the Facebook group. Shows are booked through our founder’s other company, Side Door. If you are looking to play at The Syrup Factory, you must connect via their Side Door profile and request to match!

About the space:

The Syrup Factory is a 19th Century house in North End Halifax, Canada, which used to be a small cordial-making factory (hence the name). Abandoned for 13 years, it was beautifully restored by Scott and Laura Simpson, who knew from the beginning that it would be a place for the community to come together to support connection and creativity.

The inside performance space has room for 60 people and 80-100 outside. The Syrup Factory welcomes a diverse and loving audience that respects the artist and other audience members. Since 2011, all ticket proceeds have gone directly to the artist (and sometimes to charities).

As a presenter, all shows are carefully curated to offer the highest-quality art in an environment designed to keep the audiences in the moment and feel inspired.
