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 Brockville & District Chamber of Commerce’s Tourism Department 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!
