How the Centre Evolved


The Event Centre was created as a long term "legacy" project by the St. Lawrence War of 1812 Bicentennial Alliance primarily to assist volunteer event organizers stage successful outdoor events. The Alliance received an Ontario Trillium Foundation grant in 2011 to open the Centre in Eastern Ontario. Now that the bicentennial is over, the Alliance has turned the operation of the Centre over to the Almonte Civitan Club who will manage the facility in the years to come. Events all have the same needs but at different times of the year and by sharing our event equipment, we all benefit!

The Centre is a one-stop depot for any event: schools, churches, fairs, music festivals, rodeos, heritage events, Canada Day, sporting events, etc. We service all types of community celebrations – large and small.

"We cannot thank you enough for the equipment and support your provided as they were an integral part of our success in executing our event. Thank you for the insight, for the vision and for the wisdom to know that these tools are needed and used by all and that by sharing and working together we can bring world class programs to our region"
