Kitchener

Ontario

Kitchener is a Canadian city in southeastern Ontario. In the centre, The museum features interactive art and science exhibits. Near sprawling Victoria Park, the Joseph Schneider Haus is a living-history museum recreating life in the 19th century. Part of the Waterloo Region Museum, the Doon Heritage Village evokes early-1900s life with buildings such as farmhouses and a blacksmith shop.

With a population of over 240,000, Kitchener offers big-city excitement without losing its small-town charm. The city’s deep Germanic roots and history are most evident during the annual Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest, the largest celebration of all things Bavarian outside of Germany. But Kitchener is known far and wide for more than the Tapping of the Keg. The 2015 annual TD Kitchener Blues Festival drew 150,000 people over the four-day festival, with performances by some of the biggest names in blues from around the world. Kitchener is the place to be for music lovers.

Kitchener also celebrates its rich cultural heritage through its many intriguing museums. Visit the historic Homer Watson House and Gallery and learn about one of Canada’s most celebrated masters, or stroll through the Waterloo Region Museum and Doon Heritage Village to experience first hand what life was like in Waterloo County in 1914.

Home of the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery and world-class performing arts theatre, the Centre in the Square, Kitchener is a hub of artistic and cultural celebrations. Explore the many restaurants and cafes, sample a craft beer in a microbrewery or stretch out by the lake in historic Victoria Park.
