About This Location

 Auditorium 1     Auditorium Picture 2      

The City Auditorium was built in 1940 and throughout its history has housed an unbelievable amount of wide ranging activities from wedding dances, craft shows, graduation ceremonies for York High School and York College, wedding expos, band concerts, basketball tournaments, volleyball tournaments, soup suppers, home shows, birthday celebrations, funerals, conventions, car shows, farm shows, bridal and baby showers, informational meetings of all kinds, and yes, even as a disaster shelter.  There is not a week that goes by that we don't have multiple events scheduled.  No other building in the community has the seating capacity so it is very attractive to large gatherings.

The Auditorium features a large gymnasium that can be used for athletics or banquets.  The main floor can seat 475 people comfortably with a dance floor included.  The upstairs balcony has 952 chairs, and the bleachers on the main floor can seat about 550 people.  The downstairs USO room is a large room that can house approximately 200.  The North Dining Room is a smaller meeting room that seats about 75 people comfortably.    There are also men and women showers for the sporting events.  

The Children's Museum is also housed on the main floor of the Auditorium.  This impressive museum has four rooms with different themes for the toddlers to visit and play with hands-on items.  The Children's Museum is open every Tuesday and Saturday mornings and also can be reserved by appointment.
