Clarenville Events Centre
The Clarenville Events Centre (CEC)
is a state-of-the-art, multi-purpose facility featuring regulation ice surface, a 1240-seat arena (with an additional 1000-person standing room capacity), a 200-metre indoor walking/running track, a 278 soft-seat (total capacity of 433) arts theatre, as well as meeting facilities and concession areas.
The CEC’s strategic location makes it extremely attractive for a multitude of special events, tournaments, meetings and conventions. The arena and theatre, combined with the exceptional number of patrons using the walking/running track and meeting rooms, has created phenomenal interest in the venue. This level of activity has established the CEC as a true regional multi-purpose facility.
The combination of facilities, driven by the region’s residents embracing the facility, has led the CEC to become the busiest multi-purpose venue outside of St. John’s. Real recreation potential starts here!
