The Arts  

Canajoharie High School is the home of the area's premier theater, the Arkell Performing Arts Center. Through the generosity of the Arkell Foundation, the Canajoharie High School auditorium is a true performing arts center.

In addition to concerts, the Canajoharie-Fort Plain Drama Club presents a spring musical and the Canajoharie-Fort Plain Drama Club Summer Drama Club presents a summer show, which is open to all communities and features a multi-generational cast.
