  • attended the art show this Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed it. As far as convention centers go this is very nice. Well designed in a great setting in a convenient location.  more »
  • I'm a professional wrestler, and have been fortunate enough to perform at such a beautiful venue. I love the seating; it makes even the top row feel like they are right next to everything.  more »
  • We have been to several events at Century Center, primarily for wedding receptions and business functions. The catering was wonderful as was the outside scenery.  more »

  • Great venue with plenty of space and rooms for events. Situated right on St. Joseph river, there is a walkway to the island outside that has a great scenic experience. Weddings and large conferences are often held here with great experiences being had.
  • 4 Stars because it's the best event center we have but South Bend could use a larger venue yet - Bernie overfilled it, Trump overfilled it, high school graduations fit - barely. They are always pleasant experiences because the building is up kept and the experiences are ones which people desire to gather in those numbers for; it just seems as though there is a requirement for a slightly larger square footage. Besides that - wonderful building, wonderful venue. Looking at it from across the river is appealing. They also have a great view across the river from the buildings interior. I really like their 'island park' they do concerts and events from. Really cool feature I doubt other cities have access to. Just wish they had means to expand - maybe they do unbeknownst to me, only time will tell.
  • I want to have Easter Sunday here with Harvest Bible from Granger. Everybody that was there was very helpful and the operation was organized.
  • Cool building but some of the artwork is kinda weird and doesn't quite fit with the architecture.
  • Great stop right in the heart of down town South Bend. There are so many rooms and events here and every time it's wonderful! Incredible view of the river!
