Host your convention, trade show, entertainment event, wedding, or other large celebration at the newly-expanded, beautifully-modernized Mayo Civic Center! The recent expansion and renovations to the center transformed it into the region's premier event site, with more than 200,000 square feet of flexible meeting, exhibit, and event space. The center can accommodate two 1,000-attendee events simultaneously, and features Minnesota's largest ballroom, with seating capacity of more than 4,000 classroom-style or 2,000 banquet-style. The center also features an Arena that hosts many large concerts and sporting events; the history-rich Presentation Hall, which served as Rochester's cultural hub for decades; stunning pre-function areas with views of the Zumbro River and downtown Rochester; 23 breakout rooms; a brand-new production kitchen; and the Riverfront Plaza, an outdoor reception venue. The center's venues are all designed to accommodate the sophisticated production, AV, and wireless service requirements of today's meeting planners. In addition, the Mayo Civic Center is located adjacent to both the Rochester Civic Theatre and the Rochester Art Center.
