The mission of the Civic Events Division is to provide clean, comfortable facilities along with exceptional support to events in City venues.

Civic Events facility policy

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 sales@citywisemarketing.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 jenny@citywisemarketing.com

City-approved caterers

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.

List of current caterers

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.

Indoor public art display application and agreement

Those wishing to display artwork in the McNease Convention Center are encouraged to read the indoor public art display agreement, which details the process for doing so, and to complete the accompanying application.

 

The Indoor Arena (once known as the Blye Arena) sits adjacent to the San Angelo Coliseum on the San Angelo Fairgrounds at 4602 Cuero St. The rodeo arena, which has a groomed dirt floor that is approximately 20,000 square feet, is used by several area riding and roping clubs for competitions and as a practice facility. It also serves as the "sanctuary" for many western-themed worship services.

The arena offers 80 stalls for penning horses overnight, eight holding pens for roping stock, and 16 RV electric hookups (110v). Additionally, the metal construction arena has electricity and water, indoor restrooms, a concession stand with utilities (although no appliances), five bucking chutes, a roping chute, and an announcer's stand.

The arena is available for rental for private and public events at extremely affordable rates. Click on the image above for a photo gallery of the facility.

Reservations for private events may be booked up to a year in advance. To book a date or for more information, call the Civic Events Division at 325-653-5487.
