Book the Hall
The New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame Inc. is housed in the John Thurston Clark Memorial Building, 503 Queen Street, Fredericton, in an area known as the Historic Garrison District. The Garrison District was declared a National Historic Site in 1965. Constructed in 1881 as Fredericton’s Post Office and Customs House, the Clark Building later served as the Public Library, and then as the National Exhibition Centre. Since 1996, the Sports Hall of Fame has occupied the entire building.
To find the Sports Hall of Fame, follow the directions to “Fredericton City Center”. The Clark Building is located on the corner of Queen and Carleton Streets, in the heart of the city. It is just one block from City Hall and on the self-guided walking tour of downtown Fredericton.

To celebrate our 50th Induction Gala in 2019 and our 50th Birthday in 2020, we announced the start of our Building Inspiration campaign with a goal of raising $300,000.00 and we succeeded.
We are thrilled to have received funding from generous supporters (listed below). Through their donations we accomplished our goal to build our 50-seat theatre called Alden R. Clark. They truly made the difference for us, and we are extremely grateful!
Supporters are honoured on our donor recognition wall just outside the theatre. Take our 3D tour for an up-close view.
