To commemorate all of the wonderful people and organizations that helped shape Gymnastics BC into the organization it is today, we’ll be celebrating in many different ways throughout the year.

About the Venue
Originally a repair shed for train engines, the Exhibition Hall retains much of the original post and beam architecture, and even some railway tracks which remain embedded in its polished concrete floor. Natural light, high ceilings, and the floor-to-ceiling windows provide a dramatic space, well-suited for large gatherings such as Gymnastics BC’s gala celebration.
Doors open for the gala at 6:30 pm, dinner will be served around 7:00 pm.
