typical arena, nothing spectacular

They do get some great B level acts here. The Arena takes advantage of their parking monopoly and charges outrages fees since there is no other option.

Wow! Wow! Wow! We went to the Friday 10:30am show of the Shrine Circus. It was AWESOME!! We sat in General Admission seating. With the purchase of an adult ticket you get a child's ticket free. For the price of a movie you can enjoy a FABULOUS show! We all, mom dad and 7year old boy, loved it. From elephant,... More

This place is in need of major improvements. Seats are so disgusting/stained. Floors are sticky/dirty.

Jeff Dunham came to town (Yay!) and his show was AWESOME but unfortunately he was once again appearing at this shoddy and poorly run venue... You first experience the long line of traffic trying to get to the entrance and parking lots... very poor signage along the S. River Rd. doesn't even mention that there are multiple lanes used until... More

It's not bad if you don't paying to much for any food item. It looks to me that St Charles County give those prices an adjustment.

This is a nice place to go for concerts. We had 2 twelve person suites rented which include your concert tickets, VIP parking, food and private bathroom. We had a great view of the stage and the sound was good. Expect long lines when entering since they have to go through security check which I was happy to do. Can't... More

Good place to see a game rock concert. Only drawbacks are $10 to park for all events and no way to park free close to it and walk. Food sucks and prices for food and drink not cheap despite smaller crowds. You do sit close no matter what seats you have and way to move to better seats as well.... More

We went to the Family Arena to see the Happy Together show last month. It is our third time seeing a show here and I have really enjoyed myself each time. The arena is large but not huge, parking is very convenient and there is plenty of it onsite, not far from the entrances either. Someone planned that part of... More

First visit was for a concert. The setting was intimate, and every seat afforded a great view. We were lucky enough to have floor seats, and it was one of the best concerts that I have ever attended. The bathrooms were clean but not air conditioned. It's an older facility, but well maintained.

The Family Arena is owned by St. Charles County. The Family Arena is a great place to attend concerts and local attractions. It holds around 10,000 people. It is a great place for family oriented events. Soccer is big at the Family Arena. I have particularly enjoyed a Christmas concert and a gospel concert. There is plenty of parking but,... More
