We have been here a few times, private dinners, theater, special events, etc... Most recently we attended the Ladysmith Black Mambazo concert earlier this month (Feb. 3). Now with the big expansion and construction still in progress it may become a much classier joint.... err sorry, big time venue for conferences, concerts and shows. As it is now, some doors... More

The civic center in downtown Rochester just got at major facelift. From the outer shell to the internal mechanisms. If you park on level 2 in the ramp you can use the skyway to go directly into the building.

This venue is great for live stage plays. It's handy, via the skyways, to hotels in the downtown area. We saw Les Mis and had seats close to the stage. Perfect! Rochester is a great city and Mayo Civic Center offers wonderful entertainment.

Attended the 'Away in a Basement-Church Basement Ladies Christmas' play at the Presentation Hall at the Mayo Civic Center. Good matinee play and location within walking of several hotels and restaurants.

Attended a Flea market here on Sunday. Center was very clean, including the bathrooms. Staff at the concession stand was very friendly The flea market was well set up and organized. Not sure if that was the Center staff or the organizers of the flea market Will return

Doctors and Nurses are above excellent. They all treat each patient with great care and concern. Nicest thing about all of them they do not guess and they all take the time to make sure everyone understands what is being said-treatment plan-and they call you after hours with results usually same day if possible

The seats were very comfortable, which I was thankful for as we were there fairly early ... so we were there for a total of3 hours and 15 min. Bathrooms were pretty clean. It was a little bit of an older building, but they are remodeling with a huge new addition in another section of the center, and I imagine... More

Not sure where you would park. Saw a couple lots on the walk there from my hotel - you would have to walk 2-3 blocks from those. We were in the North Lobby conference hall; For our 520 predominantly-male audience, there were only 3 toilet stalls, and I had too keep asking the conference personnel to open up for back-up,...
