As Chairman of the Acme Community Centre, I would like to welcome the world to our beautiful building. After losing our Memorial Hall to fire on March 13th 2004, the community of Acme pulled together to create a new facility that has served our community and the surrounding area since 2006.

Our community centre accommodates large functions such as weddings, graduations and concerts in our beautiful main auditorium, and smaller events such as corporate meetings or small family reunions in one of our meeting rooms. We have a full complement of bar & kitchen facilities available for rent. We also maintain relationships with local caterers and servers to meet with your exact meal requirements for any size of function. Our spacious bar serves onto the main auditorium. You will find our rental rates and terms very accommodating for every size budget.

Located only 45 minutes NE of Calgary, the Acme Community Centre would be a great place to host your next function.

- Douglas Miller
Chairman of the Acme Community Centre


The first Acme Memorial Hall, built after World War II, was destroyed by fire on January 31, 1949. Our second Hall was also lost to a fire March 13, 2004. With funds from insurance, government grants, community donations, and a tremendous amount of work from community leaders & volunteers, the third iteration of our community centre opened its doors in 2006.

Our new community centre is a showcase of community Halls. Countless hours went into the planning stage as board members travelled to neighbouring communities visiting their centres. All the features for a great gathering place were compiled and fine-tuned & the result is our spectacular community centre.

We welcome you to Acme & we hope our Hall will be your next location for your special function.


The Acme Community Centre opened its doors in 2006. It is a modern, accessible, Community Centre that can fit the needs of most groups and events. The entire facility is ground level and easily accessible. The facility has wi-fi available throughout for internet access.
