The AHL team Bakersfield Condors home ice is at Rabobank Arena. We had seats on the ice & there is nothing more exciting than to see the puck flying toward you or players crashing into the boards. I do have a challenge with the stairs so I made sure I had everything I needed before sitting down, popcorn, soda, candies.... More

I am working here in early February with The Bakersfield Symphony. This hall seats about 2,500 people. The way the seating is set up, even the cheap seats are still pretty close to the action without obstructions to your view.

We use the facility for a religious convention every year. It is very accomodating, well located and has a good air conditioning system which is a must in Bakersfield in summer.

Sound system not good quality, speakers rattle can't understand. Stairs are way to steep. If climbing is hard do for you, don't bother.

Rabobank has the best events in town. They have this huge hall where my company gave us a company Christmas dinner. They upgraded their fountain which it gives rabobank that relaxing theme when your outside.
