Attraction Information

Attraction Type/s:  Theatre (Performance), Sporting Venue


Adaptability is the key at the Kiefer UNO Lakefront Arena. Events are radiantly presented whether the performance is in the True Theatrical Configuration (2400 capacity) or Expanded Theatre (2200 6500) or Full Arena (6500 10,000). Even the grounds are ideal for an outdoor event. Because of the excellent acoustics and the intimacy of design, the Arena has maintained the reputation that there is no bad seat in the house.

Each patron can feel close to the performer and the action! In addition to the main arena, the facility boasts meeting rooms, an Olympic-size pool-one of the finest in the southeast, an outdoor warm-down pool, and even an auxiliary gym, which provides two practice basketball courts. This truly multi-purpose facility is operated by the University of New Orleans. Versatility is the hallmark of the Kiefer UNO Lakefront Arena.

Consistently ranked among the top ten in entertainment industry publications, the Arena has enjoyed the rating of #1 internationally in its category. The Arena has been included in the Top Ten for well over a decade among all public assembly venues, and is the #1 university venue of its size-a status that it has maintained for several years.
