Memorial Auditorium

Complementing the Sacramento Convention Center is Memorial Auditorium, a 3,800-seat venue - perfect for lectures, seminars and special events. This city landmark even has a hydraulic floor and a 200- seat little theater. Built in 1927, the Memorial Auditorium is an ornate masterpiece with extensive terra cotta work and elaborate detailing. This multi-purpose building is used for everything from concerts to banquet dinners to conferences to competitions.

Originally opened in 1927 and restored in the 1990s, Memorial Auditorium has drawn audiences to a variety of events, from Big Bands and violin virtuosos to the Beach Boys and Rolling Stones. Since its reopening in 1996, the auditorium stage has welcomed artists such as Josh Groban, Michael Buble, Melissa Etheridge, comedians George Lopez, Mike Epps and Ron White and bands from The Doobie Brothers, The Moody Blues, and Duran Duran to Death Cab for Cutie and The Killers.

The lighting design team for the auditorium received the 2008 GE Edison Award for their exterior lighting of the building, as well as a GE Award of Excellence in Environmental Design. In addition, "The National Trust for Historic Preservation" named the Memorial Auditorium as one of five national winners of "Protecting America's Treasures."
