Hi,

1- What is the most important event you can remember when you were 5?
2- What is the most important event you can remember since you were 5?

Which one sounds OK to you? They are my sentence but I cannot make sure which one is OK.

Thanks.

I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to say.
Try:

What was the most important event you remember from when you were five?

or if you meant between age five and now:

What was the most important event you remember since the age of five?
