Our Story

Be Engaged. Be Inspired. 

Welcome to the Aurora Cultural Centre


The Aurora Cultural Centre is an 1886 heritage building that began its life
as the Aurora Public School, also known as the Church Street School.
It has been transformed into a centre for the arts, culture and heritage.
Aurora is recognized as a premiere heritage community. In 2008, the Town won the
prestigious Prince of Wales Prize for its commitment to the preservation of its
built heritage.
Generous funding from Federal, Provincial Governments, the Town of Aurora, and
from the Aurora Historical Society ensured the heritage building was beautifully restored.
Today the Centre, a Registered Non-profit Charity, is overseen by a dedicated volunteer
Board of Directors with it’s operations generously funded by the Town of Aurora.
Doors opened January 27, 2010 and several thousand people enthusiastically enjoy
events at the Centre annually.
