Kicking Horse Culture manages the Civic Centre on behalf of the Town of Golden. The building is located on the south side of the Kicking Horse River at 810 10th Ave. S. (Highway 95 S.) next door to the Golden Cinema.
The Great Hall is a beautiful and welcoming venue for concerts, conferences, meetings, memorials, weddings etc. On the accessible lower floor, there is a Board Room available for smaller meetings and presentations and, a variety of multi-purpose rooms available for rent by hour or day.
Many years in the planning, and 15 months for the construction and restoration, and the old brand new Civic Centre was re-opened the week before New Year’s 2011 with 5 days of celebratory events.
See the Civic Centre video on YouTube. This video shows the story of the restoration, enhancement and celebratory re-opening of the hall. Originally built by volunteers in 1948, the hall closed for construction in Sept 2010 and re-opened the week before New Year’s 2011.
