We love this venue for live music or any type of event. There really is not a bad seat in the house. The staff is really warm and friendly too!

Not a bad seat in the house. Had a pleasant time at the SoCon Tournament. Bathrooms were clean with all the fans. A little tight as far as the streets and all. But over enjoyed the the Tournament.

The civic center has two parts--a multi-purpose arena and an auditorium. The civic center parking isn't too far away but the major problem is that on event nights, the cash takers are buried in their cell phones or talking with each other. Plan on up...More

Horrible venue for concert. The Celtic Women were wonderful entertainers and their music was beautiful. However the acoustics were terrible! The bass overpowered the sweet voices of the Women. And the audience talked, ate and used their phones for taping and photography. On the plus...More
