Escalator leading up to the Event Center

The Seneca Event Center
Year Opened: 2006
Capacity: 2,400

The Seneca Event Center has hosted many shows since its opening in 2006. It contains a nice size stage. The seats are divided into three sections. The only downfall is that the seats are all one level and do not incline at all. This may leave one with not too good of a view if you have a tall person in front of you. But do not let this deter you from checking out one of the many great shows hosted by this venue.

The Bears Den
Year Opened: 2005
Capacity: 440

The Bears Den is the mecca of all intimate venues. Not only do you get pristine sound but no matter where you sit, you will get a great view of the stage.
Some of the artists who have played here: Collective Soul, Ace Frehley, Patty Smyth & Scandal, Mickey Thomas & Starship, The Zombies, Jon Anderson among many more.

Niagara Falls Convention Center
Year Opened: 1973
Capacity: 10,000

The Niagara Falls Convention and Civic Center was opened in 1973. The multi-purpose venue hosted many concerts earlier then also several trade shows and many then World Wrestling Federation events.

The Convention Center was closed in 2002 following several years of struggling to break even. Seneca Niagara Casino now occupies the site.
