Wabano Centre is a beautiful, centrally located venue with first-rate facilities available to rent for special events. Designed by Douglas Cardinal, this fabulous facility has a distinctive atmosphere that can accommodate a range of events from arts events such as musical or theatrical performances that require staging and theatre style seating, to book launches and poetry readings with a more intimate ambiance.


Our striking open-concept Cultural Gathering Space provides a unique alternative to a hotel venue. The space is ideal for cultural performances such as dance and music with unique acoustics, and a central stage area for performances. Sound and lighting systems can be setup to create different effects. A variety of seating configurations are available to suit any style of event, with balcony seating available for larger events. Separate rooms are available for smaller events, or as rehearsal and break rooms for larger events.
