Great Canadian Entertainment has announced the grand opening of a new Live Entertainment and Special Events Venue at its Great Blue Heron Casino & Hotel. The property opened in 1997 and is located in Port Perry, northwest of Toronto.
Great Blue Heron Casino & Hotel also houses a gaming floor with over 600 slot machines, 16 table games, 10 electronic table games, and a popular poker room. It also hosts a 116-room hotel adjacent to the casino, which was renovated in 2021.
The new venue, with a total capacity of nearly 800, is designed to accommodate a variety of events, including live performances, concerts, and corporate gatherings. Its layout allows for multiple seating configurations, such as round tables set in a banquet style, theatre seating, or general admission, making it suitable for large-scale events. Spanning 12,637 square feet, the venue features an open cell ceiling grid approximately 4.4 meters (over 14 feet) high.
