Kitchener Time Capsule and 100th anniversary celebration

KITCHENER – Mayor Carl Zehr and members of council will celebrate 100 years of cityhood by placing a centennial time capsule, presented by Superior Memorials, at the Duke Street gardens at Kitchener city hall on Monday, June 10 at 4 p.m. They will dedicate the capsule at this public ceremony and declare an official date for the time capsule to be opened in the future.

All residents are invited to the grand finale of the Kitchener 100 celebrations and to sign the centennial signature scroll. The event will include highlights of the year-long celebrations, live music and displays in the rotunda. Refreshments will be provided so we can all “toast the time capsule.”

“This is a great way to conclude our centennial celebrations from the past year. It gives us a unique opportunity to look back at how our community came together and celebrated our city, and a chance to leave our legacy for those who come after us through the time capsules,” said Jeff Young, manager of special events.

After the time capsule ceremony join us inside the rotunda to share in the excitement of our world record for the longest picnic. You can have your picture taken with the Guinness World Record certificate, enjoy live entertainment and refreshments. 

The festivities begin at 5 p.m.
