Have gone to this location for everything from crafts shows to gun shows. They have a myriad of things going on. One complaint is the lines to enter cross directly in front of the interior lobby and cash is the only form of payment taken for the events I attended.

Once I side the hall the area is expansive and well lit. The shows there have a very friendly atmosphere and are usually well attended by vendor and patron alike.

Security is both event and Fredericksburg PD attended and very low key yet gives you a safe feeling.

Have not attended any concerts here but imagine it provides a nice small venue.

Shows of crafts antiques and guns are what I have been too and all are very good. Well organized and very good value from vendors.

Location could not be better! Shops all around, malls galore, right off I-95 and close to Rt. 1. Pillows were like rocks (bring your own), and handicapped accommodations not the best.

Was there for historicon. Place is smaller than the other places than the other place where the conference has been held. Many vendors who were listed to be there were not there. The water keep running out and not replaced in a timely manner. Plus all the water was pull at the same time. The food was ok. Not all the ATM were working.

I love having a local place that we can have quality crafters and be able to purchase their crafts without having to drive to Richmond or Northern VA!

I visited the center during a Gun show back in the year 2011. The center is large enough to accommodate conferences and other events.If marketed well it can be a good a source of revenue. The fee charged is depedent with the activity in place. Some are free others you get to pay activity entrance fee
