In addition to programs run and delivered by The Bentway itself (find full listings here), The Bentway also acts as host venue to events and activations run by communities, partners, and clients.

In selecting these opportunities, The Bentway prioritizes events that:

  • Are free or low-cost to attend
  • Are open to the public
  • Do not duplicate or compete with Bentway program offerings
  • Preserve space for both Bentway programming and general public use of our spaces
  • Align with the mission and values of the organization

Fees for event hosting and activations are scaled, and include special discounted rates for community groups and not-for-profits.

Like other registered charities, The Bentway relies on the contributions of a range of supporters, as well as income from occasional onsite hosting, to fuel our work. Income generated from event hosting helps enable year-round offerings delivered by The Bentway, such as free onsite skating, artist installations and performances, and community programs, plus the costs of onsite maintenance. Read more about The Bentway’s 365 impact here.
