J.S. Dorton Arena

The J.S Dorton Arena is a well-known building because it has served many purposes over the years. Ranging from concerts and trade shows to athletic events or circuses – even graduation ceremonies. Now, you can even have your largely grand wedding here! Imagine having the whole arena as yours in an entire day. How awesome is that!

Moreover, the lobby walls of this building are tinted, glare-reducing glass. The two lobbies can be found on the ground level. It provide visitors with an immersive experience too. As they can see through the building’s windows! Also, the suspended roof is a distinct, sleek design that eliminates the need for structural steel supports and presents zero view obstructions from any seat. The arena floor provides a spacious 25,000 square feet. Restrooms and dressing rooms are also available for your convenience!
