Weddings and Private Functions

The Mayne Island Community Centre is a lovely, rural Gulf Islands venue for weddings and other private functions like banquets, family reunions or private retreats.

The grounds are quite beautiful and ideal for a special occasion, situated on five acres of meadow and surrounded by forest. In the warmer season, our marquee tent is up, for a total of 2400 sq. ft. of usable space.

The facility was designed with a bright, rural, West Coast ambience featuring a huge skylight in the Main Room.

The Main Room has lovely high ceilings, with access to the outside or tent area via a large, glass power door. A well equipped commercial kitchen is connected by a pass through window.

During the warmer season with the marquee tent in place, 100 people can be seated in this 1200 sq. ft. area, leaving another 1225 sq. ft in the Main Room as well – plenty of room for music and dancing!

Decor can be any way you want it. This wedding went with a very nice marine theme.

A cozy Social Room is connected to the Main Room and can be left open to expand the space, or be closed for quiet conversation for example, or be designated as a retreat for parents with small children during events, your choices. Within you will find a nice gas fireplace and comfortable lounge seating.

Our professional kitchen has everything you need for a fully catered event with 100 people: tables, cloths and chairs, place settings, wine glasses and champagne flutes, votives, warming trays and much more. A detailed inventory is available on request.


For booking information please send an email to

We will work with you to make your special occasion all that you hoped it would be. There are some considerations when booking a larger, private event. We take a refundable deposit to hold the date for you, then remaining fee is not due until 30 days before your event. Deposits are returned within 30 days afterwards.

You may want to serve alcohol in which case a Special Occasion Permit is required. This goes hand in hand with the necessary insurance, as a rider on your own policy, or secured from PAL for a one time event. If you use a caterer, that service provider may have Foodsafe and a food permit, or if you are providing this service yourself, the permit must be obtained at least 2 weeks in advance of your date.

Basic rates are as follows:

$1900 Tent Season: Marquee Tent has banquet seating capacity of 100
$1200 Non-Tent Season: banquet seating capacity is approximately 60
