Today the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium launches a nostalgic digital campaign in honour of their 70th anniversary. The initiative is aimed at collecting memories of The Aud from members of the community.   

For the past 70 years, The Aud has been famously known as Kitchener’s premier sport and entertainment venue, hosting national and international competitions, shows, and trade shows.  

The Aud is a special place where so many great moments and memories have taken place. I grew up in the Aud Neighborhood and walked by it, to and from Sheppard School every day,” said Councillor Dave Schnider. “I'd often watch the Rangers practice after school and going to Rangers games on Friday nights with my dad is a memory I treasure.” 

We want to hear about your favourite Aud memory, whether it was an unforgettable concert, watching your child play a hockey game, or catching a special show with a loved one. 

Residents are encouraged to share their Aud memories by uploading images, stories, and videos to the 70th Anniversary page on Engage Kitchener. All approved memories will be posted on the memory wall for residents to connect and engage with 

Memories will be collected over the next six weeksA celebratory video will be shared on The Aud’s official birthday, May 24, 2021.
