Since opening its doors in October 1971, the Roanoke Civic Center continues to be Western Virginia's premier full-service convention, exhibition and cultural complex. Major industrial trade shows, professional sports teams and business executives have all discovered that the Civic Center can meet their needs with professional service and competitive pricing.
Located within walking distance of downtown Roanoke, visitors to the Civic Center will enjoy exploring the historic Roanoke City Market or browsing in some of the many shops and museums. There are numerous hotels and restaurants in the Roanoke Valley which cater to a variety of tastes and budgets. And the great southern hospitality can't be beat!
A spacious coliseum, theatre, and multi-purpose hall, supported by complete kitchen facilities and plenty of dressing rooms make the Roanoke Civic Center the ideal place for business, professional, or social gatherings. Major concerts and touring Broadway shows appear regularly at the Civic Center, often to sell-out crowds.
