“This Was The Perfect Place for Graduations, Concerts, Sporting Events,. etc.”

Charleston Civic Center
Reviewed 25 May 2017

I had the privilege of attending the graduation of my long-time friend's baby son, Christopher, here. 2017 Class of Riverside High School held May 19, 2017. The venue is huge and easily accommodated all the students, their family & friends, faculty, and guest speaker. I can see why so many events are held here. It was a good thing that it was held here because during the ceremony, it began to pour rain outside with lightning as well.

You can tell it's an older arena, but it's in a very good location.

Compared to other arena's, the parking and good venue prices were very reasonable.

We attended one of the last Ringling Brothers circus events at the arena.

Overall, it is a very nice arena.

We traveled to the Civic Center to see the Ringling Brothers circus one last time. There is plenty of parking right at the center (only $3) or in nearby garages (only $1.75). This is not a large facility, and it appeared well maintained. The only curious thing was the lack of restrooms - only two women's restrooms in the entire place! It appears one men's room was a former women's room.

Easy in/out of parking garage. Great show. Seating area floor was very sticky. Building under renovations concourses are nice. Construction did not hamper visit.

It was a nice venue, except the aisles in between each rows of seats were a bit narrow for my liking, and I felt like the seats were right on top of one another. I was at the concert by myself and stuck in between two couples, which was fine. It wasn't too hot or cold either, which was nice.
