Great venue. I've attended several concerts here and would definitely do it again. Clean. Great staff. Only draw back is it seems a little inconsistent on scheduled shows. One year you will have big name acts and the next year you won't have but the...More

The Expo Center doesn't really have a bad seat in the house for concerts. The size of the arena isn't too large so concerts have a little "closer" feel to them as compared to the 20,000+ seat arenas. It's always very clean as well!

I have attended a number of events here, and I have no complaints. Glad to have a place like this an hour from home. The town I live in would never allow a place like this. My town seems to be against having fun.

The Expo provides an excellent venue for concerts and other events. It is large enough for major performers yet small enough to provide an up-close experience for attendees.
