I recently attended a trade show at the Burton Coliseum. The layout was perfect and the staff was enthusiastic. Every time I attend an event at this facility I leave with a smile. Thanks Burton staff!

I have gone to basketball games, and to festivals there and been very comfortable. I am in a wheelchair and it was easy to get around. It is a nice place to visit and have a good time.

Great show just wish the building was more ADA friendly. Smith, Harper, & Morgan doesn't disappoint with great rides and lots of action.
