The Event Center at Kino Sports Complex will close for renovation starting Nov. 10 and will be closed through January.
Planned renovations for the facility include a new multi-purpose gym floor, acoustical panels in the gym for better sound absorption, new lighting that will include dimming capabilities for banquets and speaking engagements, restroom upgrades, and new paint and flooring.
“These improvements will bring the Event Center up to date and make it more enjoyable for the entire community to use,” said Reenie Ochoa, director of Kino Sports and Entertainment Complex.
The project was funded using $750,000 from the American Rescue Plan Act.
The Event Center is a 32,000 square-foot indoor venue that currently includes a lobby, reception area, two outdoor patios and various meeting spaces. It is located at the Kino North Complex at 2805 E. Ajo Way.
The facility is expected to reopen Jan. 31, 2024.
