The Shriners Auditorium is a premier show and exhibition facility, ideal for a wide variety of events. Just 15 miles north of Boston, it has been an enormously successful venue for hundreds of shows and exhibits. It is well known throughout the region as a major, mid-size auditorium and convention center.
With over 100,000 square feet of total space, it serves as both a hub of Shrine-related activity, as well as the site of numerous events sponsored by outside companies and organizations. There are several spaces available within the facility for shows, functions and meetings. A modern, well-appointed building, it is completely handi-capped accessible, with elevator service to the second floor.
The 37,000 square foot main auditorium has ably hosted trade shows and conventions, circuses, antique and home shows, and concerts, just to name a few. It is nearly football-field size, with a 24-foot ceiling. At the front entrance, patrons pass through a spacious 3,300 square foot lobby. Other access includes eight emergency doors, plus two overhead doors that are 12 feet wide by 14 feet high, admitting large vehicles.
