Went there for a business venue during the weekend. Parking is expensive and if you leave you have to pay again. I like the overall facility. Sound system seems good, lighting good, seating some areas are good, some need more padding. Of course you are not suppose to bring food into the facility, but there food is terrible. No salads...

The Hall was nice for our convention. The seats were comfortable. They had good vendors. The bathrooms need updated badly.

Very nice stadium. Loved the fact that walking up to the second floor was by a ramp not stairs. Clean, well lit, and well maintained.

We attended a large event in this historic venue and had an overall good experience. The venue is definitely dated but this should be expected since it is decades old. The lower level folded seating was not very comfortable, however the upper bowl seats, even though a little narrow, we're among the most comfortable I have experienced in any large... More

I have been to a whole lotta concerts here and will definitely go back. It is not hard to find your way around, and they have a lot of parking that is not far from the entrances, unlike some other places that I have been.

Have been to Freedom Hall several times for different events. Flea Markets, Home Shows & Basketball games. It's just a big open space that lends itself well to these types of events. Reasonably well maintained, the restrooms are spacious and kept clean.

This event was so much fun. We visited Freedom Hall at the Louisville Fair and Exposition Center for the Rodeo/Bull Riding. There were thousands of people there and people were having a great time. There was plenty of parking and police were directing travel so there were not major traffic jams. This was a great family event.
