“Rain Barrel Ball Event at Century Center was a Ball!”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

Discovery Ballroom at the Century Center featured an outstanding facility for a 200+ guest event. Gorgeous appointments (lighting, standing bars, etc), excellent dance floor, and state-of-the-art sound and video systems helped make the event picture and sound perfect. Century Center support staff, and cooking star Chef Rory Bancroft made planning and executing the event a delight.

“Ho-hum”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

The building is deteriorating. The food served doesn't quite come up to average. I wouldn't waste my time as a tourist.

“Big Convention Center”
Reviewed 22 February 2013

The only convention center in the area that is not a hotel. You can rent a room for a special occasion. The downstairs has a great view of the river. In the summer, the outside area and the amphitheater are open for the visitors to stroll around and enjoy the "fresh"air and the mist from the river

“Variety of events”
Reviewed 31 December 2012

It seems like there are more events at Century Center than there had been in the past. You can tell an attempt has been made to make the building welcoming despite the architecture and scale being of a more grand and slightly cold nature. Some of the details of the building are pretty amazing though, such as the view through the large windows in the grand hall, the bathrooms, the museum, etc.

It a lovely view whether you have an event there or just want to walk out on the island and be surrounded by the river and the dam.
