Initiatives & Events
The Riverbank Discovery Centre works in partnership with many community groups to serve Brandon and Westman as a cornerstone space to host educational and cultural initiatives, promote environmental stewardship and to foster healthy community relationships. We host many permanent, annual and seasonal initiatives at the Discovery Centre, and are constantly working with our community partners to find other new, interesting and unique things to bring to the Riverbank.
The Riverbank Discovery Centre also serves as a gathering place for the community. It plans and coordinates many annual community events such as Brandon’s Canada Day celebrations. It also hosts large scale community events organized by external groups such as charity fundraising walks, fundraising events and even car shows! There truly is never a dull moment at the Riverbank!
