The City Auditorium, designed by a local architect in the "Classic Revival"
style, was completed in 1923. The building, costing a whopping $424,910 at the time, was primarily used for concerts, theatre
performances and graduations. To this day, the City Auditorium remains one of the premiere live performance venues in Colorado
The plaque above the stage of City Auditorium is inscribed, "USUI CIVIUM DECORI URBUS", or "For the use
of the people and the glory of the city." With this motto in mind, the City Auditorium has provided entertainment to
Colorado Springs for nearly a century. City Auditorium tickets are very popular
and sell out quickly. Get yours today.
Though City Auditorium began as a place to see silent films and stage plays, today the facility is used for everything
from trade shows, meetings, concerts, and auctions, to sporting and social events. So what are you waiting for? With a little
something for everyone, City Auditorium events are never disappointing. Come
experience them for yourself. You'll be glad you did.
