  • I was at the Center for an event. Spacious room, good parking, handicapped access. My only negative was the room was cold the first day. This was corrected for the second day of the event.  more »
  • Do not order tickets for this venue directly from them over phone, they are a Ripoff, we ordered tickets for WWE just minutes within them going on sale and was told that the closest seating available ...  more »
  • Parking was a breeze which is usually a nightmare at a civic center. It was nice inside, people were nice, and most importantly CLEAN.  more »

  • Horrible place. I was there for a magic tournament and they searched everyone for food on the way in, made us throw everything out. I even saw they made people give up empty Nalgene bottles - and of course water is $4 inside. Never seen this from a convention centre, terrible experience.
  • BE FOREWARNED! Do NOT buy advanced parking tickets on their website like they ask you to do for "convenience." You will be charged an extra $2.75 for the same type of parking spot as everyone else. We paid more than other people and still had to drive around the parking lot to find a spot. I was not happy and felt very ripped off! The events at this venue are great, but I was not happy with their online service. Hope I'm able to help others not be ripped off as well. If they are going to ask for people to pay in advance for parking and charge extra to help their chaos at the entrance of the parking lot, then I would expect a better parking spot or an assigned parking spot.
  • Pretty terrible convention center with mandatory bag checks so they can force you to buy $4 bottles of water.
  • No outside drinks were allowed into the venue. The Berglund Center then turns around and charges four dollars for a water bottle and $4.50 for a 16 ounce soft drink.
  • A good venue for music and gun shows. Parking is adequate. The future for the former Roanoke Civic Center is somewhat up in the air since its acquisition by the Berglund group. The Berglund name isnt exactly associated with quality and excellence.
