Event Hosting


The Richmond Olympic Oval is a breathtaking venue on the banks of the Fraser River and winner of numerous architectural awards. Home to long track speed skating during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, the Oval now offers an inspiring environment for all ages and skill levels to progress toward their own personal podiums.

Our facilities are available to rent for corporate team building, meetings, and sporting events. Not only do we provide a unique facility with a variety of meeting rooms, sport courts, reception areas, and outdoor spaces, but our professional event team will help you plan and create a memorable experience.


The Oval features meeting spaces for your upcoming AGM, board meeting, staff training, or workshop. From small intimate meetings to larger trainings, we can accommodate a variety of setups. Our ground floor boardrooms include built-in audio visual (projector, Blu-ray player, and wireless internet) and floor-to-ceiling windows.


Overlooking the Fraser River and North Shore Mountains, the outdoor space at the Oval is the perfect setting for barbeques, receptions, and festivals. The north Plaza is the future site of major waterfront development, with commercial and public amenities.
