Rent the Centre

The Oakville Centre has all the tools needed to make sure that your event is a success. Whether you need a 485-seat auditorium or an intimate 120-seat Studio Theatre, we are here to help plan your event from technical set-up and operation to ticketing and box office services to catering.

The Oakville Centre has two fully licensed bars, a kitchen for food staging, complete sound and lighting systems, tables and chairs and convenient coat check areas.

The Oakville Centre Box Office offers full service box office support for your event — wherever you hold it. Your ticket buyers may buy online 24/7, or speak to one of our friendly, knowledgeable staff members by phone or in person. Staff is ready to help six days a week, with a minimum of six hours of support each day.

Your event will be listed on the Oakville Centre website as soon as it goes on sale (sometimes before). You will be provided with space to treat your interested customers to a video clip of your event and link to your website for background on the event or your organization.

Sales reports are made available to you by request, or online with your own login and password, so that you may check ticket sales any time of the day or night.

Your ticket buyers may choose to have tickets mailed to them, held for pickup at the event or delivered to their or someone else's email inbox.
