When did the Abbotsford Centre open?

The Abbotsford Centre opened its doors to the public on May 9, 2009

Did you know?

Each show designs and runs their own set, lighting, and sound. In most cases, this equipment travels with the tour and is set up the morning of the show.

Some shows travel with as little as 1 semi-truck of equipment to load in the morning of the show. Other shows like Cirque Du Soleil can travel with 27 semi-trucks and take two days to set up.

Our friendly ushers are a great resource for seating issues, noise/volume concerns, other patron concerns and any displeasure you may experience while attending an event.

Wheelchair escorts are available at the Abbotsford Centre. This service can be arranged when you arrive at the event. Simply speak with a Guest Services staff member inside the Envision Financial Guest Services Office and we will have someone pick you up and bring you back to the gate at the end of the event.

All set times, intermission lengths, camera policies and additional security measures are dictated by artist management.
