“Great venue for a Dog Show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

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.

“salem fair”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

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.

“Efficiency and information poor”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014 via mobile

Recently went to Alison Krause and Willie Nelson concert. Was not informed when bought online tickets parking passes required. Went to center however could not pay for parking and was instructed to go back downtown to park and catch shuttle. Arrived at center very few employees around to help with where the will call windows located, etc. went back to gate 1 out of sun to await entry. No one allowed in until 6 pm and two employees at this gate to search folks and take tickets. Needless to say not good and drink lines were long. After concert there was a huge line to return to parking with one employee filling one bus at a time! This was ridiculous for hundreds awaiting buses. Lack of efficiency due to lack of employees was ridiculous. This was two trips in one, first and last to Roanoke Civic center. They should take some tips on how to move crowds from our friends at Disney
