The Rabobank Arena Theater and Convention Center in Bakersfield, California is one of the most exciting
entertainment venues in the country. It is located in the heart of downtown Bakersfield, and first opened its doors in the
early 1960s. It was originally constructed to attract convention trade to the city, but soon became a venue for top-notch
entertainment. The first show to be performed at the facility featured the Ice Capades. Not only was it one of the first convention
centers to hold such an event, it was also one of the first buildings of its kind to feature modern design and architecture.
It also featured one of the largest stages in the world. It became the home of the Bakersfield Symphony and attracted large
Broadway musical productions because of its state-of-the-art facilities.
In the late 1970s, the theater underwent massive
renovations and expansions that would include the addition of a large convention center area and an adjacent hotel that would
help bring more visitors, not only to the facility but to the town of Bakersfield. The building was once again remodeled in
the late 1980s with the addition of a 10,000 sports arena. It was renamed the Centennial Garden and Convention Center. It
included room for large crowds and a staging area for large productions and live shows. The building was again renamed in
2005 when the Rabobank signed a 10-year agreement with the city.
The theater has become a hot spot for some of the most
exciting music and theater productions in the country, and has several areas in which shows may be performed. There is a concert
hall, an exhibit hall and a lobby, which is also used for seating in some events and a Stagehouse. The convention center continues
to host intense matchups between the Bakersfield Condors and their biggest rivals. In the coming months the theater and convention
center will not only be the site of many exciting games featuring the Condors, but they will also host events like WWE Live,
the Harlem Globetrotters and Hello Dolly. Don't miss a moment of the action at this exciting entertainment venue.
There is a lot to love about the Rabobank Arena Theater and Convention Center in Bakersfield, California. Not
only is it one of the most beautiful theater venues in the country, but it also hosts some of the most exciting live performances
around. The facility first opened in the early 1960s. It first served as just a space for the performing arts, hosting events
put on by the Bakersfield Symphony and Broadway productions. Then, in the late 1970s, the city began to make plans to expand
the theater into a multi-purpose convention center, which would incorporate the existing theater. This first expansion was
completed in 1980, which allowed for the facility to host larger events and conventions.
Then in the late 1990s, the
venue was modified once more with the addition of the sports arena. With the addition of the sports complex, Bakersfield was
able to acquire the ECHL hockey team, the Bakersfield Condors, which helped bring thousands of visitors to the complex each
year. The Condors have become a winning team, earning an affiliation with the Anaheim Ducks of the National Hockey League.
The Condors finished their first season as Ducks' affiliates first in their division. The team is now affiliated with the
Edmonton Oilers and continues to conquer the competition, attracting fans from all over the area.
Today, the auditorium
hosts musicals, comedies and dramatic theatrical productions, sporting events and some of the biggest conventions on the West
Coast. In the coming months the facility will host some intense matches between the Bakersfield Condors and their toughest
competition, musical productions like Hello Dolly and live events like WWE Live, an appearance by the Harlem Globetrotters
and concerts featuring megastars like Gabriel Iglesias. There's never a dull moment at this fantastic venue, and you won't
