Had a great time at the concert for Little Big Town. Was very impressed with the Mayo Civic Center. It is a smaller venue that adds to the concert. Loved it.

We toured this really fantastic Christmas tree show which was a nice respite from hospital visits and it was so convenient to be connected to the clinics.

very wide place, very good for conventions, a little disorganised so it's a bit difficult to find the place where you're headed, nice garden outside

Attended conference with 400+ people. Excellent facilities. Wifi was very good. Meals served in adjacent rooms was very acceptable. Good acoustics and visibility. Other than they kept it a little too cold, that was better than being hot. Would attend there again.

The Civic Center and the Civic Theater are attached, and all the streets are one way and parking is metered, and not in an good area of downtown.

We drove down from the Twin Cities for a concert. Parking was a breeze in a local lot. The building was OK, nothing memorable. The audience was insanely rude and talked and walked up and down the aisles throughout the entire concert. Really? I would consider other venues if possible.

So, seating was cramped, sounds bounced around or were too loud, just like every other convention center. Snack bar food was surprisingly reasonably priced and quality. Restrooms adequate, everything accessible. Not an "attraction," but if your convention is held there, you go.
