There are so many reasons why the GrandWay team are my first call when we are brainstorming a new corporate event idea. They go above and beyond to support, from the first call to packing the last box into your trunk post-event. It’s not a cookie cutter approach, they help you build the event that *you* are envisioning. We’ve asked for it all – from custom menus & budgets, to out-of-the-box outdoor events, last-minute bookings, on-the-fly set-up changes, early morning starts and late night finishes, and everything in between.

Sally Litchfield, General Manager, Centre Wellington Chamber of Commerce

Danielle and the entire team at The GrandWay are wonderful to work with. From the quick email responses, to the event setup/cleanup, and everything in between; they are with you each step of the way to ensure your event runs smoothly. We were all very pleased with how well our event ran and our guests had nothing but great things to say. Overall an amazing experience and definitely recommend having your next event, big or small, at The GrandWay!

I’ve had the pleasure of attending both an indoor and outdoor event at The GrandWay recently. Both events were fun, had great atmosphere and delicious food! Beautiful venue and cannot recommend more!

Our Spaces

Find the perfect venue for your next market or show. We specialize in providing creative solutions for unique needs, so all our spaces are extremely flexible and versatile. If you don’t see something here that fits your needs, our Events Team will work with you to find or create a space that does.

GrandWay Hall

Location: The GrandWay Event Centre

  • 250 people*
  • dividable room
  • private outdoor patio

As one of the largest event spaces in Centre Wellington…we aim to impress. Built in 2020, the 3,800-square-foot hall has a fully integrated audio-visual system to make your market or show come to life.

With large windows that look out onto the 53-acre property and access to a partially covered patio, this space has the ability to accommodate up to 250 guests. If this is more than you need, we can divide the room into a split of 110 and 130 people.

If the GrandWay Hall is not enough, it can be used in conjunction with any of these event spaces, grounds, infield, or patio.

*Room capacity is dependent on room configuration.
