Confederation Centre of the Arts was founded in 1964 as Canada’s National Memorial to the Fathers of Confederation, who gathered at Province House in 1864 to discuss the creation of our country. Covering an entire city block, the Centre stands on what was the site of the old Charlottetown marketplace. It houses several theatres, an art gallery, restaurant, and a gift shop. Open year-round, it showcases the best in Canadian visual and performing arts.

Meeting & Convention Facilities:
Confederation Centre of the Arts offers one of the largest convention and meeting facilities on Prince Edward Island. Within walking distance from three major hotels and next to Province House, where the Fathers of Confederation met in 1864, the Centre can easily accommodate any function – from a reception for 25-1,500, to a banquet for 900.
The venue is also particularly well suited for exhibition and trade shows due to its expansive rooms and high ceilings. Unique features such as the marble-walled Memorial Hall, the elaborate 1,102-seat Homburg Theatre, the 200-seat cabaret Mack Theatre, and the intimate Studio Theatres make the Centre a leading choice for meetings and conventions.
