I have visited the Allen Event Center twice in the last year. There is free parking, close to eating places and not many stairs to climb either up or down to get to your seat. The corridors have plenty wide to accommodate both those getting food and those just visiting. The restrooms are big and clean and it does not... More

Well coordinated event center. Have attended inside football game, home and garden show, ice hockey, and speical events. Easy and accessible parking (free) and ease of entrance and access to the seating areas. Good visibility throughout into the arena. Food vendors on both sides.

This is located in an area full of choices of where to eat before any event that could be held there! I loved it. There are some venues where you have to drive further to find food. But if you don't have time to pick up food before hand, this place has Cici's pizza and Nestlé Toll house cookies! I'm... More

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
