La Crosse Center


The La Crosse Center has become a premier facility in the Midwest as a convention site and an entertainment destination for people to gather, meet, and celebrate.

This convention hall and arena was originally built in 1980 and has undergone two major renovations since. The La Crosse Center now offers 120,000 sq. ft. of multi-purpose space including an arena that can seat up to 8,000, two ballrooms, ten dedicated boardrooms, and a terrace overlooking the Mississippi River.

The Center provides professional event staff to cater to your specific needs and also offers equipment rental such as Audio/Visual services. The multi-purpose spaces offered are great for weddings, business meetings, trade shows, banquets, concerts, and more! Click here to learn more about our spaces and services.


The La Crosse Center is conveniently located in downtown La Crosse and is within walking distance of over 50 downtown restaurants and shops. While in town for an event, La Crosse Center guests enjoy exploring the majestic bluffs and magnificent Mississippi River by hiking, biking, boating, paddling, fishing, and skiing—all within a 15-minute drive. The La Crosse Regional Airport is a 15 minute drive from the La Crosse Center and the Amtrak Station is only a seven minute drive.
