  • 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 »

  • Attended numerous events. Structure and layout are nice. On the river, great views. Museum is a nice addition. Looks like a nice place for a wedding reception. Would be nice to have a small food selection. Foot traffic may prevent this option. Either way nice place for events in South Bend
  • Great location for the MLK day celebration Come down and be part of the solution for making a better community to live in
  • I have been to many events at the Century Center over the years, including my high school prom and graduation. Most recently I was there for Ramencon and I have to say it is still a rather lovely space, and I love what they have done with the island. I will definitely continue to attend events that take place here.
