The mission of the Civic Events Division is to provide clean, comfortable facilities along with exceptional support to events in City venues.
Advertising in City facilities
Citywise Marketing, a local advertising agency, sells advertising opportunities in City facilities, including Foster Communications Coliseum, Convention Center, RiverStage, Airport, recreation centers and the Texas Bank Sports Complex. For more information, contact Citywise at 325-223-5928 or at email@example.com.
Naming rights policy
The City Council adopted an updated naming rights policy on June 1, 2010. Naming rights to City facilities are marketed by Citywise Marketing, a local advertising agency that also sells advertising in City venues on the City of San Angelo's behalf. For more information about naming rights, please contact Citywise at 325-223-5928 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Only City-approved caterers may cater events at City facilities. Becoming a City-approved caterer involves completing an application and turning it in to the Civic Events Division at the McNease Convention Center, 501 Rio Concho Drive. Please call 325-653-9577 with questions.
All Caterers must pay the City 10% of the gross catering bill. Caterers often pass this cost to their customers. All rentals for dishes, table linens & linen napkins are paid to the City not the Caterer.
Sample insurance certificate
All events in City venues must provide insurance. Those who rent facilities are welcome to provide certificates of insurance through their own carriers. The language of any certificate that is provided must match the language of this sample certificate. Visit www.onebeaconentertainment.com to get a free quote for insurance. The Risk Management office is no longer ordering or purchasing event insurance for any rental venue, the client is now responsible for doing this on their own. For this and further questions, please call the city's Risk Management office at 325-657-4359.

The arena floor is 20,000 square feet and can accommodate 122 8x10 exhibit booths.
The multi-purpose arena is home to the San Angelo Rodeo, the nation's fifth-largest rodeo. The climate-controlled Foster Communications Coliseum is ideal for concerts, ice shows, rodeos, circuses, arena football, family shows, trade shows and exhibits. Its rate structure is affordable enough to host private events and it is versatile enough to accommodate an almost endless number of set-ups. (For a photo gallery, click the image above.)
