The Pavilion

Encompassing nearly 100,000 square feet, The Pavilion is as big in versatility as it is in size. Eight roll up doors, eighteen foot ceilings and concrete floors make this building ideal for major trade and consumer shows, festivals, dances and sporting events. As the home of past events like the Governor’s Ball, The Pavilion has shown its glamorous side on more than one occasion. It has also shown its versatile side with events such as the Health & Fitness Expo, Sacramento Kennel Club Dog Show, Special Olympics and the Exotic Zone Halloween Ball.
