Thank You Linamar

We’re committed to every child, every year.

Linamar for the Performing Arts is a program of River Run Centre for children in grades 1 through 8.

Now in its 19th season, this program is dedicated to building wisdom and understanding of life’s broadness and diversity through exposure to the performing arts. Every year, we have two opportunities to welcome students to River Run Centre to experience professional performances of music, dance, theatre and more. Thanks to the ongoing support of Linamar Corporation, Ontario Arts Council and the Department of Canadian Heritage, the program sees and attendance of 32,000 to 34,000 children each year and we are able to offer this program admission free so that every child has the opportunity to attend.
