  • 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. 
  • very nice place to have a taekwondo tournament. easy to get to, clean, had food available. Just need to pick a different time of day to clean restrooms and not first thing in the event when travelers ...  more »
  • Been to hundreds of events at this place. Even saw Dizzy Gillespie play here in 1979!. What can one say, it is a large hall for rent.Seen better, seen worse. It's okay.

  • 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.
  • Nice venue to hold events. The staff during our event was very friendly and helpful.
  • Went to an indoor car show here. It was really cool
  • Beautiful event space with a view of the water located in the heart of downtown South Bend.
  • As an attendee of events and exhibitor at others I would say the Century Center is a pretty good venue. Events are usually smoothly run with almost enough hand dollies to help vendors get materials in & out. It is spacious and provides plenty of room for attendees to move around.
