The event is okay, but could use some updating and a better air conditioner. They try to hold too many events at the same time.

Came here for a concert, and loved it. It's a beautiful Event Center right next to the water, very spacious. They were also very organized during the whole concert.

Attended this Festival of Lights Parade for the first time. The VIP event was at the Harborside Event Center and they charged $50.00 for it. It included dinner, wine, beer and soft drinks. Liquor drinks were also sold. The dinner was a tossed salad, roll, runny mashed potatoes, steamed vegetables, something that they called chicken but was questionable and very... More

This facility is on the fringe of downtown; is easily accessible and has many parking areas surrounding it, from indoor parking to parking lots; and many street spots. The facility is close to the water and the attractions of downtown.

Lucky for me the Mrs. is a teacher. The venue was great. the salad was fine, the veggies amazing, but the chicken... not to die for. Tough, bland, dry, and such small portions. The desserts were great.

The location, across the street from the river makes this venue a great location for a boat show. With the inside , outside and waterfront docks filled with new watercraft the mood to Go Boating is set. Add the new trendy downtown restaurants, and it makes for a great afternoon.

I haven't been there lately. Parking is nearby and it has some good venues. But, I really have no reason to go there any more. It's down town and I do not like going down town. But, if you want to see a Revival or maybe a Kitchen Show, this is your place! If you want to attend the Reading... More

Prayer Day Breakfast is always first rate there. Home and Garden shows are well displayed there. Art Fest in and around the building is great. BUT THERE IS NOT ENOUGH PARKING.
