Your dream wedding rental…

We typically host weddings in our Multi-Purpose Room. Not only is it the largest room in the Community Centre, it also has the best view. If you’re looking for a more intimate wedding venue in Vancouver, our other room rentals are ideal for smaller functions.

How many people can the venue hold?

The room has a standing capacity of 100 people and a seating capacity of 80 and is approximately 52’ x 39’ (feet) with hardwood floors, a large outdoor patio, a top of the line stereo system, and a small kitchen.

What is provided with the rental?

Tables and chairs are provided with the rental. 15 round tables (60-inch diameter), 10 rectangular tables (6’ by 2.5’ feet), and 2 card tables are available. Renters are responsible for their own set-up and clean-up unless janitorial service is ordered (service for clean-up only).

The kitchen has a stove, oven, microwave, sink, and two fridges. One of the fridges is located beside the kitchen and is perfect for a drink/bar area. Unfortunately, the kitchen is only for storing, reheating, and preparing food—full cooking is prohibited.

Renters may bring in any caterer they wish—the Community Centre does not provide any food or beverage services. The centre also does not have table clothes, place settings, cutlery, serving utensils, or kitchen items at the Community Centre, and linen service is not provided.

The patio can be used, but tables/chairs must be brought in by 10pm and everyone must be inside with doors closed by then (City of Vancouver by-law).

Do we need a liquor license?

If liquor is being served, it is the renter’s responsibility to apply for a special occasion license and the primary person serving must have Serving it Right. Visit Serving It Right for more information.

Can we play music?

There is a stereo system that plays CDs or easily connects to a laptop, iPod, or other audio devices. The community centre has the connecting auxiliary cord.

There is also a podium, wireless microphone, projector, and projector screen available. All equipment is included in the rental price except the projector ($25/day).

When can we reserve the room?

The Multi-Purpose Room can be reserved up to a year in advance for your wedding or special event depending on the date and time. The typical time slot for weddings are Saturdays from 2:00pm – 1:00am (this includes time to set-up), but other times may be requested.
