The coronavirus crisis has led to the halting of some major events at the Charleston Coliseum and Convention Center and the Municipal Auditorium. Currently the CCCC is operating under a skeleton crew to limit the number of people at the facility. Please be aware that our response times may be longer than usual, so please be patient with us during this time.
Book Tickets purchased for the WVSSAC Boys High School Basketball Tournament will be automatically refunded. These are being processed as quickly as possible.
Two major upcoming events affected include the West Virginia Home Show, which had been scheduled April 3 through April 5 at the Coliseum, and the performance by country singer Aaron Lewis, originally scheduled April 3 at the Municipal Auditorium.
The Home Show has now been moved to June 23-29, and the new date for the Lewis concert will be announced soon.

Last Thursday, city officials announced that events expected to draw 250 people over the next 30 days at the facilities were being canceled, but the net has widened after the Centers for Disease Control recommended to avoid gatherings of more than 50 people.
President Donald Trump’s administration released new guidelines yesterday afternoon that call for avoiding groups of more than 10 people.
Charleston city officials announced Monday that there will be limited public access to the Coliseum and Convention Center and Municipal Auditorium.
We are busy trying to reschedule other events that were halted and will update this page as we go.
