Located on Haywood Street, the U.S. Cellular Center, formerly the Asheville Civic Center is Western North Carolina’s preeminent multi-purpose event facility and is managed by the City of Asheville. The facility first opened to the public in 1974 and has since hosted thousands of concerts, sporting events, trade and consumer shows, graduations, speeches and other types of events over the years. The U.S. Cellular Center primarily consists of four venues and has the ability to host a variety of events: Explore Asheville Arena,  Thomas Wolfe Auditorium, the Exhibit Hall and the Banquet Hall.

In recent years the U.S. Cellular Center has acquired a solid reputation as a quality venue that hosts events in an appealing destination with appreciative fans. Leveraging the burgeoning reputation of Asheville as a center of creativity and the awareness of the city as a great place to live and visit, the U.S. Cellular Center hosts sold-out shows by a diverse range of artists. With over 200 days of events and drawing well over 200,000 people annually the facility serves as a major economic engine supporting the vitality of the region as a whole and vibrant downtown Asheville in particular.

The building itself contains historic elements from the previous Art Deco auditorium. The lobby of the current structure features Art Deco terrazzo floors and gilded plaster molding and anthemia-ornamented columns.
