It is okay Crawford Arena is much better than Garrett which is where we were at and we had great horse stalls this year! Wish the funds were there to make improvements to the restrooms, stalls, and Garrett Coliseum. One big plus would be if you had a WiFi Option even if there was a small fee like at many... More

I've been to runs, fairs and expos at the garret coliseum and am never disappointed. It's a great place for events.

We went for a concert and are used to venues in Atlanta... needless to say, this venue is in some need of an overhaul. There was no air running and the smell of the fried food they were selling permeated the building. It is a small venue which is nice because you can park close, but be prepared to pay... More

Was at the fairgrounds for a scholarship presentation. Ended up with free tickets to the rodeo. It was the first time in years we'd been to the rodeo there. Mainly b/c the tickets are so high! The announcer no longer rides around on horseback. He stands at a table by the bucking shoots. Only 1 bareback rider... announcer said "the... More

Enjoy attending the rodeo there every year. But this year the rodeo did not seem to be nearly as good as in years pass. The clowns were not fun, to announcer riding around on the horse. Seem like it was cut a little short. Was not nearly packed full like I have seen it in the pass. We have been... More

For the most part, I usually go to the coliseum at the Alabama National Fair, so about once a year. But it can be used for so many things like the rodeo,circus,fashion shows. The renovations are not that noticeable, to me.

The Coliseum was very warm there was absolutely no airflow in the hall. It was miserable to sit and watch the Western Pleasure competition and the exhibitors were super warm.
