Riverdale’s Centre for the Arts, Business, and Leisure Services
The mission of Riverdale’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Leisure Services is to provide residents a means to celebrate diversity in Riverdale by developing cultural initiatives and leisure activities that meet the needs and interests of the community. The department operates the Riverdale Centre in order to reach their goals of improving health, education, and lifestyle.
Residents of Riverdale are afforded the opportunity to participate in various classes offered at the Centre during the year. Courses on acting, dancing, kickbox cardio and more are currently running for winter and it’s not too late to register. If you have a special occasion or need coming up, the Riverdale Centre for the Arts, Business & Leisure Services has a space right for you. Be it a banquet hall, dance studio, art studio or entertainment lounge, the Centre has rentals available now.
The Seafood and Beer Festival is a popular event held at the Riverdale Centre each year. The festival features a beer garden, live musical entertainment, kids’ fun zone, talent competitions, and a lobster derby. On warm summer nights cool down after work with music performed in the attached open air amphitheatre. Musical guests appear the third Thursday of the month in summer. Additional performances are scheduled throughout the summer via the South City Concert Series.
