I agree with those who say the concerts here are way too loud. This causes feedback. And you can’t hear the singers. The voices are garbled. This venue is not built for concerts but I think they could... do better with the sound. I also agree that the chairs are too small and too close together. Even the seats that are not on the floor are too small. The Three Dog Night concert here was terrible. Way too loud and distorted. I may not return to a concert here because of these reasons.

We have so much fun at Fonner Park. Can’t believe Lincoln and Omaha can sustain race tracks. We try to go to Fonner at least two times a year. Great place.

The music in that place sucks. The music is way to loud and we can't understand any of the lyrics they are singing or saying. Been disappointed every concert we've been to. I don't know who controls t...hat but somebody needs to fix it. See More

The complex is awesome. The State Fair buildings and the Heartland Event Center are first class additions to Grand Island. Fonner Park plays host to several annual events including Horse Racing, the N...ebraska State Fair and national groups that have all hosted events on the grounds. Concerts at the Event Center have exceeded it's 7,500 seating capacity more than once. The State Fair now has to take its concerts outdoors in order to have enough space. The success of the facility was greater than some had predicted. It is a great sprawling campus with even more room to grow. See More

The chairs they put out for concerts are way to close together no moving room whatsoever. The husband of the woman sitting next to me kept putting his arm around her and hitting my shoulder they were so close.

Friendly staff, comfortable seating, and cool temperatures! Attended the Three Dog Night concert! Parking was good! Restrooms were easy to find and get to, plus they were clean! Great experience!

I attended Three Dog Night and enjoyed the facilities. Staff was great! Beer was costly but ok - I get it. Great events center. Second level seating was fantastic. Nice sky boxes. Fairly clean Good signage but needs directioning for handicapped parking. See More

The monster truck show last night was the worst I have ever see. The show was not prepared and set up. The ed beckley jump was a joke, and a waste of an hour. The wrestling was stupid and horribly c...oreographed. Two trucks didn't even make the show, and the only truck putting on a show broke down. Of the two hours we sat there, the trucks only performed a half hour. See More

It would be way better if they started to get rock bands back in there they used to have a lot of them now it's been about 4 yrs since I have even cared who was there.

Saw the oak ridge boys there last night & loved it.

The ladies at the box office were great! Both over the phone & I'm person. Especially Deanna. Much prefer this venue to pinnacle bank arena. ...

Wish they'd either bring back the oaks or other groups like them. I'd happily drive from Lincoln to attend.

Great concerts and all the other things that go on at the event center. I just wish that at the concerts people would show other people the respect they deserve. I enjoy the concerts but there are like the hall county fair, Craig Morgan concert we had two drunk men behind us talking over the music. I did not enjoy this concert. I just hope that maybe before the concert starts something should be said about talking and disturbing other concert goers. See More

Went to the 3 Dog Night Concert. Friendly staff. Sound system needs work. Other Concerts that I have been to was way better than Saturday night's Concert.

Fonner park is one of the cleanest well planned event center for large livestock shows you will find anywhere in the country
