     Since opening its doors in 1993, the West Plains Civic Center has served the citizens of the area by providing a wide variety of entertainment and educational opportunities. This multifunctional facility houses nearly 30,000 square feet of continuous floor for trade, exhibit, and banquet events. Within its walls is also an arena that can seat up to 3,500 fans for a full hall concert, or sporting events such as basketball and volleyball. We serve as home to the Missouri State University-West Plains Grizzly volleyball and basketball teams, who play on a new hardwood maple court that was bought in the summer of 2020.

     Our beautiful theater, which can seat up to 450 patrons, hosts a wide range of events from touring comedians, magicians, and vocalists of all genres to ballet and performing arts productions. 

     The West Plains Civic Center also provides a convenient and first-rate location for banquets, conventions, and meetings (both large and small). This space also works great for corporate seminars, weddings, and ceremonies of all types.  We have over seven separate configurable meeting spaces that are perfect for conferences, each with audiovisual capabilities.

     Combine our excellent facility with our dedicated staff who are dedicated to you and your event and you will have a seamless event from booking to teardown.
