Sports memorabilia personally donated by Don Cherry, Ken Dryden, David Clarkson, David Hearn, James Reimer, Adam Henrique, Greg Norman and much more will be featured in a silent auction to take place Friday evening and Saturday, April 4 and 5, at the Wilmot Recreation Centre. All proceeds will go to help fund New Hamburg Live!

The 2014 New Hamburg Live! Festival of the Arts will kick off with a new feature this year – a Monday afternoon student matinee (also open to all who want to attend), on Monday, June 2, at 1 p.m. The matinee will be a concert performance of "The River Rolls", the highly acclaimed song cycle celebrating the history of Waterloo Region.
