Went to the Home and Garden show. Facility is easy to enter and adequate open space. Have also attended other events and this is a great location. No huge, so easy to see all the vendor tables

The Allen Event Center is easy to access located off US 75 or Central n the Allen Viliages. Parking in two high rise decks was free. Went on a cold day in December 2016 and the event center was cold as worn coat and hat during the performance.

My wife & I attended a mid-week Allen Americans minor pro hockey game at AEC with a friend from the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Having a free parking garage right across the street is unusual for such venues & much appreciated. The local traffic policemen were very courteous as they directed pedestrian traffic across the main access road; we even chatted... More

We vIsit the Allen Events Center frequently for hockey games but this was our first concert here. The facility transforms very nicely for concerts. Several concessions were open also. As always, parking is convenient and free. We will be looking for future concerts to attend at this venue.

Went to a concert here - first time to visit. The venue was only set up for half the arena and it wasn't very full, but I liked it a lot - I could almost see the musicians faces. However, since I'm used to huge arenas, I was missing the screens actually showing the musicians up close - maybe they... More

The hockey games are fun, and great for all ages. My friends and I loved the free ice time! It is great for all ages.

I can't speak for what the Allen Event Center is like for other sports or concerts, but for Allen American Hockey games, it's outstanding. The staff is generally friendly, the seating comfortable, and the viewing angles great (not a bad seat in the house) The only complaints I would include is that on weekend games, especially Saturday nights, they crank...
