For more than 60 years, The Aud has been a cornerstone of the community. The history of The Aud tells a story of a building first conceived with a vision for the future – a vision that has been surpassed.

In 2012, an expansion at The Aud added close to 1,000 seats to the venue’s capacity, as well as a third-level concourse, a fourth-level media room, bunker-style suites, concessions, washrooms, offices and retail areas.

The Aud hosts more than 500,000 guests over 364 days of the year within its 70,000+ square feet of indoor exhibition space. This includes three adjoining ice surfaces (Kinsmen, Kiwanis and Dom Cardillo arenas). Also home to The Aud are Jack Couch Ball Park, Centennial Stadium, The Aud Skate Park and The Aud Neighbourhood Leash Free Dog Park.

The Aud welcomes its guests to stage shows, trade and consumer shows, exhibitions, training sessions, seminars, concert productions, religious gatherings, ice events, tournaments, and a variety of baseball and field events while providing world-class customer service and great experiences to all... every visit!

The Aud is owned and operated by the City of Kitchener.
