Loved the eWomen conference! This is my 4th or 5th year attending. The facility does everything in their power to accommodate such a large group.

Roanoke may be a small town but has a big town appetite for the arts! The Civic Center plays host to many differing types of concerts, art shows, car shows, etc.

Attended/participated in a large dog show held at the Civic Center. It was a great venue. Having the seats available to look down and watch the activities was a nice addition. The place is clean, good PA system. Though you couldn't pay me to drink out of one of the water fountains.

One of the top fairs around. Really enjoy the rides. They put a lot in a small area. Get a wrist band and ride all day. For a hometown fair this one still has some pop.

The main building has seen its years of use and abuse and is starting to show it, from the small stadium style seating to the obligatory sticky concrete floors coated with years of cotton candy and soda. And the horribly designed bathrooms that have massive lines to use due to poor design. I think Roanoke needs to look into a... More

We went to the civic center to see Justin Moore, Randy Houser and Josh Thompson. The singers were great. The civic center is small and easy to get in and out. The parking is free which was very nice. The only negative was the line for beer was VERY long. There were only two lines in the whole place for... More
