The Rapides Parish Coliseum (often called the Rapides Coliseum, as noted on the sign out front) is located in Alexandria, Louisiana. It can seat about 6,500 people in the 65,000-square-foot building. Additional space is in the smaller Exhibition Hall, also on the property. Built in 1965, the dome-topped Coliseum has hosted thousands of events, including music concerts, "monster" truck shows, professional wrestling, trade shows and sporting events.
Additional facilities on the grounds include a 23,000-square-foot Exhibition Hall often used for trade shows and the 65,000 square foot Lewis-Odom Agricultural Complex used during livestock auctions and 4-H shows.
