City National Arena has a large event space on the second floor of our facility that overlooks one of our ice rinks. The room has been painted black and now has two TV's mounted on the wall. The capacity of this room is dependent on the type of set-up required. If minimal sit-down seating and tables are required, we are able to hold 150 people in this room. If sit-down seating is required, the capacity is reduced to 100 people. This room has also been used for large seminars/presentations, as well as large private parties.
City National Arena has two rooms located on the second floor of our facility. Each of these rooms overlooks each one of our ice surfaces, are the exact same dimensions, and have the capacity to hold 35-40 people with tables and chairs to seat all attendees.
Private ice rental is a great way to make your private event stand out from other venues in the surrounding area. Although it is not required to rent private ice if you hold your event at City National Arena, it is an option to give your guests an exclusive experience to try ice skating! We recommend renting private ice for any group over 60 people, as it makes for a more enjoyable experience for the group.
Private ice rentals are scheduled amongst our regular rink programming and other events already booked. We will do our best to accommodate the date and times that your group requests.
Located on the second floor of our facility, City National Arena features a full bar and restaurant, MacKenzie River Pizza Pub & Grill. MacKenzie River is able to cater your event in any private event room in our facility, and are able to cater to any specific needs of your party.
Please note that requesting an event through City National Arena's website does not mean you are booking an event in the restaurant. MacKenzie River Pub & Grill is a separate entity from City National Arena, and they do their own event bookings. To make a reservation in MacKenzie River Pub & Grill, please contact them directly.
City National Arena requires the use of MacKenzie River Pub & Grill to cater your event. Extremely special circumstances must be present in order to use an outside catering option, and will be judged on a case-by-case basis.
