The Eastlink Events Centre – Clarenville has been designed to create a lasting legacy that will shape the future of the Town of Clarenville and the region as a whole for years to come.
Opened in October of 2009, the Eastlink Events Centre – Clarenville is a state-of-the-art multi-purpose facility featuring a 1247-seat arena (with an additional 1000-person standing room), a 200-metre indoor walking/running track, a 400+ soft-seat arts theatre, along with meeting facilities and concession areas.
The Events Centre is located on Blackmore Avenue in the vibrant and growing Town of Clarenville. Adjacent to the Clarenville High School and Middle School Complex, ball field, swimming pool, fitness centre, soccer and track facility, the Event Centre's strategic location makes it extremely attractive for a multitude of special events, tournaments, meetings and conventions.
During the first year of operation, the Events Centre contributed significantly to increased growth in minor hockey, figure skating and youth hockey and quickly became recognized as one of the top facilities in the province. The theatre and walking track has created phenomenal interest and increased use for the facility, helping to establish the EECC as a true regional multi-purpose facility.
The Events Centre hosted numerous events during its first year including provincial and invitation hockey tournaments, provincial and regional figure skating competition, and of course, the Clarenville Caribous AAA Senior Hockey. For the first time ever, Clarenville hosted the provincial senior hockey Herder Memorial Championships and the Senior Caribous won the provincial title in 2009 and 2010.
The residents and businesses throughout the region have embraced our facility, rejuvenating community spirit and enhancing Clarenville's reputation as a “hockey town”.
