This multi-purpose facility has been used for trade shows, receptions, sporting events, seminars, meetings, dances, concerts, etc., and is well suited to accommodate large conventions with seminar space that range from 15 people to 1,400 people. This facility is also home to two ice surfaces and this allows for flexibility and being able to accommodate all the needs of the community. Consider the North Simcoe Sports and Recreation Centre for your next special event!

It is much more than an Arena - it is truly a place for any occasion.
