I've gone to events at civic center for years. Good facility. Was really bothered by events going on while renovations were been done. Didn't appreciate paying to be there while such strong paint fumes were in the air. Maybe they should complete work before having public there.

we had a great time and the staff were great, they seen I had trouble with the steps and they showed me another way out so I wouldn't have to walk back up them. I have bad knees and I really appreciated this more than they knew

I live in Huntington and travel to events in Charleston often. We have 3 kids. The Civic center has seen offering a great range of entertainment for adults and children. Ticket prices vary depending on the event but typically you can get good deals. The arena is set up where you can see decently even from the top and that's... More

Good overall place for most venues. Doesn't always lend itself well, but is typically good, For example, Monster Trucks/Monster Jam just does not make a great show in the small arena. We've been there for Disney on Ice, the WV International Auto Show, several concerts, etc. They're usually fine. My biggest complaint is actually a tie between the entry/box office... More

The Civic Center has been a staple in Charleston for decades. Whether you want to see a hit artist or a college basketball game or maybe the West Virginia High School basketball tournament this place never didappoints. It's a very nice venue.
