“Bridal Expo was overcrowded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I went to the Patriot Ctr for a Bridal Expo. It was very crowded though there were vendors both upstairs and downstairs. There was bottlenecking in the wrap around hallway on the upper level. They do serve alcohol. I have also been here for the circus which was enjoyable with decent seats higher up. Average venue. Staff was helpful.

“Excellent sports and entertainment venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Located on the edge of George Mason University, the Patriot Center is convenient to most of northern Virginia and has plenty of parking. I've attended several concerts held there and never been disappointed.
