We were sent to a building on the other side of the parking lot that was CLOSED! Then given unclear directions to another bathroom on opposite side outside of venue. Found it (creepy little... More

Memorial Auditorium is venue where many events are held. Many concerts and shows take place here and during the winter months, this is where the Burlington Farmer's Market is held on Saturdays. I once attended a comedy show by Bill Cosby here.
