One of the most recognizable and beloved buildings in the region, the Sacramento Memorial Auditorium is listed on the National Historic Register. The auditorium was constructed in 1926 and opened in February 1927. For eighty years the Memorial Auditorium has drawn audiences to a variety of events, from big bands and violin virtuosos to the Beach Boys and Rolling Stones.
The Memorial Auditorium is a sentimental venue for the many thousands of graduates from regional high schools, colleges, and business and professional schools that hold their commencements each May and June in the building. It has lived up to its mission as a multi-purpose venue, as it still serves as the venue of choice for not only entertainment and sporting events but meetings, conferences, banquets, receptions, and speaking engagements.
