Casino Events

The River Rock Casino is located on River Road in Richmond, British Columbia. It opened in 2004 to answer the growing demand for a high quality gambling venue that would combine superior gaming, fine dining, comfortable accommodations and casino events amidst the beauty of the scenic hills and forests of British Columbia. Vancouver’s population is growing and includes an increasing number of professionals who work in international trade, high tech and other lucrative professions. These people are interested in combining the comfort and affordability of Western Canada with the kind of excitement and nightlife that they would be able to find in Toronto.

River Rock Casino answers that need with a large resort center that offers eateries, shopping, gaming and entertainment in one convenient location. Vancouverites can travel to the casino, located 30 minutes south of Vancouver, and stay for one of the evening performances at River Rock, combine the night out with some gambling fun or enjoy a few days at the hotel which features all of the amenities of a high caliber resort.  

Smokey Robinson and Motown

Smokey Robinson’s career spans almost seven decades, from his beginnings as a Detroit teenager to his status as a septuagenarian performer who continues to rock the stage. From his beginnings as a songwriter and producer for the Miracles, Robinson has participated in almost every aspect of the music business, including working as a frontman for Motown groups and a position as vice-president of Motown Records.  Since the ‘70s Robinson returned to his first love, working as a songwriter and a performer. He has garnered great acclaim, including a star in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Robinson’s performances always sell out early and the River Rock Casino suggests that anyone who is interested in attending a performance book their seats as early as possible.
