Richard O. Jacobson Exhibition Center

Completed in 2010, the Richard O. Jacobson Exhibition Center is a flexible venue with the versatility to host events ranging from livestock and trade shows to concerts and sporting events. The state-of-the-art facility is fully climatized and includes a show arena, a covered warm-up arena and fixed seating for approximately 3,300. The striking design and unique architecture combined with tiled quilt patterns adorning the exterior walls make the Exhibition Center the ideal space for any large-venue event.

Jake's Club, the second floor VIP area, can be used independently for business meetings, private parties or receptions.
