The River Run Centre Gears Up for 2012-13!

Karen KesselDowntown Guelph, Special Events

The River Run Centre‘s 2012-13 season kick-off is fast approaching! Starting in mid-October, this year’s lineup is quite impressive and runs all the way through to April! Some of this year’s big name headliners include Colin Mochrie, Jason McCoy, Colin James, Darrelle London and Mike Mandel. With its premier location at MacDonell and Woolwich -just steps from RiverHouse Condominiums and the new transit hub- River Run is easily accessible to all of Guelph.

Spanning a variety of stage genres, the River Run Centre features something for all ages and tastes. The Guelph Mercury and Woolwich Arrow sponsor family events like the Three Musketeers, The Berenstain Bears Live! and Little Red Riding Hood. As you browse the rest of the acts and headliners, it becomes clear River Run attracts the best musical, artistic and comedic talent around.

One of the greatest strengths of the River Run Centre is its intimate concert setting. With the main hall seating 785, and opening less than 15 years ago, it combines a comfortable, interactive atmosphere with modern design, lighting and acoustics. This offers a welcoming alternative to the big-noise, over-crowded events you may find elsewhere. There is a strong emphasis on the artist, and the River Run Centre truly puts you inches -not miles- away.

River Run is currently in the midst of an early-bird promotion for their upcoming season. The early-bird special offers a 30% discount to anyone who purchases tickets to four or more shows before August 31st, 2012.
