Revitalizing Historic Downtown Fredonia
The Main Street Studios will be created from comprehensive interior and exterior renovations of the warehouse space at 50 West Main Street in Fredonia, NY. The Studios will become an entertainment hub that will feature theater, film, music, dance, and cultural activities.
Originally the tri-level warehouse was home to the historic Card Seed Company, but has been vacant since the 1980s. Venture Productions looks forward to transforming the space through a partnership with the Village of Fredonia and a generous grant from New York State Homes and Community Renewal.
Renovations will adapt the facility into a first floor performance venue, second floor classrooms (ideal for acting, dance, martial arts, etc.) and a rooftop garden, which will play host to a variety of activities (yoga, wedding photographs, public presentations, etc.).
The project will yield year-round community events, increase tourism, and create additional jobs in Chautauqua County. This project will foster business development, promote economic activity, and stimulate the revitalization of Downtown Fredonia.
