Park in the free parking garage. But get there early to park on the 1st level or 2nd. If you’re on the top and stay for the entire event, you’re gonna be looking at about 1 1/2 to 2 hr wait trying to get out.
If you decide to stay in pikeville, you need to reserve way ahead of time due to limited hotels. We stayed in Paintsville but was able to visit Loretta Lynn’s homestead which was awesome!!!!!
The arena has really good seats pretty much everywhere because it’s small.

Great venue. I've attended several concerts here and would definitely do it again. Clean. Great staff. Only draw back is it seems a little inconsistent on scheduled shows. One year you will have big name acts and the next year you won't have but the big concert during Hillbilly Days. I'd sure rather drive to Pikeville rather than Chatlotte.

Great Venue

The East KY Expo Center is a jewel to this community. Not only is it a great place for concerts, but for many other events as well. They have in house catering and can accommodate almost any event you can think of from Birthday parties to large conventions.

Great Venue for Shows!
May 2018 • Family
The Expo Center doesn't really have a bad seat in the house for concerts. The size of the arena isn't too large so concerts have a little "closer" feel to them as compared to the 20,000+ seat arenas. It's always very clean as well!

Great venue for concerts
Jun 2018 • Family
Have attended several Gaither Homecoming and Gaither Vocal Band concerts here as well as local graduations. Great, modern venue here in Eastern Kentucky. The only bad thing is they have no on-site or really close parking. Handicap parking is non-existent. Parking is at a public parking garage two blocks away. If attending an event here, the best parking option is across the street at a local technical college's parking lot. They usually charge $5.00 for event parking and it's still a little walk but it is way closer than the parking building and a lot easier in and out access. But don't let this keep you from attending a show here...this is a really great modern venue in the heart of coal country. It's a wonderful facility.

Great place
Feb 2018 • Couples
I have attended a number of events here, and I have no complaints. Glad to have a place like this an hour from home. The town I live in would never allow a place like this. My town seems to be against having fun.
