Kitchen Only Rentals

Kitchen Only Rentals are the perfect opportunity for start-ups, small businesses, and home-based businesses to prepare their food products in a government inspected facility. The Commercial Kitchen is an ideal space for cooking classes and demonstrations.

The Caledonia Fairgrounds is home to two government inspected kitchens which are available for short-term rentals: The Commercial Kitchen in the Riverside Exhibition Centre and the Kinsmen Hall Kitchen.


The possibilities are endless in these multi-functional spaces!

The Commercial Kitchen- Riverside Ex. Centre


Cooking Equipment

The Commercial Kitchen features two 10-burner, 2-oven gas ranges, two large stockpot gas ranges, a gas cabinet-convection oven, a 36-inch natural gas griddle, and two 40-lb gas deep-fat fryers. The cooking equipment is covered by an automatic ventilation hood which is professionally cleaned and certified twice per year. The area is protected by an automatic fire suppression system which is inspected annually.

Preparation Area

Two massive stainless steel prep-counters act as islands down the centre of the kitchen. A convenient hand-washing sink is located in the west island and on the south wall. The kitchen is outfitted with an automatic commercial conveyor dishwasher.


The Commercial Kitchen features a reach-in refrigerator and a reach-in freezer. The adjoining bar also features a walk-in cooler and an ice-maker which are available on request.
