River Run Centre

River Run Centre was built with funding from the City of Guelph, Government of Ontario, Government of Canada, and from more than 1,400 companies, foundations and individuals. Major contributions from local companies led to the naming of several spaces within the facility, including duMaurier Theatre (now Main Stage), Co-operators Hall (now Studio Theatre) and Sleeman Atrium. Under the leadership of Douglas Bridge, a group of Guelph developers, professional people and private citizens pledge $500,000 to ensure that the centre be named for the community. River Run Centre was named through a public competition that attracted 2,260 entries. Stephen Norton of Guelph won the naming competition. The Centre opened its doors to the public April 23, 1997 with five days of open house tours. More than 400 volunteers led 8,000 visitors through the building.
