This is a very nice old sports arena constructed in the 1950's and means a lot to the US world of inline and quad speed skaters.

Parking around arena was metered (2hr spots) Mon-Sat. LOTS of spots though and free on Sunday. Ended up parking in a public lot and it was only $5 for the DAY! Arena is dated but did the trick for our event. Lots of seating for sure. Would prefer more informational signs to be up alerting me to the different areas... More

If the show is something your interested in and its there it is OK place to go but a very old venue that hasn't been updated. OK for Ribfest.

Thumbs up to roller derby. Thumbs down to hard-metal concerts. Venue is dated, but for the right event, it can be fun.

Son Jackson was able to enjoy his last time with friends by taking in a concert at Pershing Center. Mom dropped him off after a nice meal at a Mexican Restaurant in the Haymarket, another place you will want to take in while in Lincoln!

I have visited Pershing for several decades, from high school basketball tournaments, to concerts, circus, etc. I enjoy a smaller venue. Parking can be difficult, but not impossible.

This place rocks. Too bad the city will prolly tear it down for another parking garage. They could book acts here that will not fill the 'Haystack' center and it's in a great part of town. I don't think any city council members have businesses near here, so it's a gonner.

I always enjoy this venue for basketball. As usual, parking was the biggest problem, especially during the day. I will be disappointed when Pershing is no longer utilized.

We had a blast at our SIXTH Dare2Share in Pershing Center. The venue is older, but very adequate. Plenty of restrooms, could use a couple more concession stands. Nice place for a conference.
