I have been here for concerts, the circus, and hunting and fishing shows. There are also graduations held here. There are now remolding the center to allow a river view and more room for attractions.

Charleston does host some events and the patrons are well served by the Charleston Civic Center. It is conveniently located next to the Towne Center Mall and various downtown hotels. The civic center is comfortable but nothing special.

Went to Univ of Charleston Graduation here. Nice venue for mid size events. Clean & plenty of parking in the garage or across at the mall.

Due to the 100% chance of rain the UC (University of Charleston) 2016 Graduation ceremony was changed from an outdoor location to this venue. It was an easy walk from the Marriott and is located directly across from the Macy's entrance to the mall. There is a parking garage if you need to drive your car there. There is some... More

The civic center is undergoing major renovation. The walkway into the center is mud covered and the work trucks pull in and out without any concern for anyone walking. The escalators are out of order. The rooms were hot. The sound travels from room to room. Bathrooms are basic and not very well maintained for a big event.

This is a great place to put on a conference or meeting. The food that is served is delicious. The staff are easy to work with and seem like they love their jobs.

Always a great theatre for events, and seeing Mountain Stage live here, all seats in the house are great. Good sound, friendly stage and sound crew, and not to be missed while in CRW, WV.

I attended a concert with my grandmother and the concert was amazing but the staff is nowhere to be found. When you enter there is no kind of organization and it is like a cow herd. When you do get into the event the lines disappear and you have a bit of free run but depending on the event you... More

Took my son 7 and niece 6 to Disney on Ice at the civic center. The outside is completely under construction and hopefully they head to the inside soon. This was my first visit in about 7 years and it was in bad shape. It is very dirty inside. Bringing large events in such as Disney you would think it... More
