Concerts & Festivals

The Salinas Sports Complex is a great venue for any festival, showcase event or concert! With grandstand capacity at 16,670, a 400ft x 160ft dirt arena, approx 360ft x 100ft mid-way, grass areas at the north and south ends of the complex, built in concession booths, and two large restrooms under the grandstands the complex can accommodate large audiences and events.

With surrounding grandstands for a large audience as well as the option of using the arena floor for seating and the addition of a stage (supplied by promoter) the Salinas Sports Complex can be transformed into the perfect concert venue!
The Salinas Sports Complex has a sound curfew of 10pm on Saturdays and 6pm on Sundays. We must be courteous of our surrounding neighborhoods, so the sound curfew is strictly enforced.

The Salinas Sports Complex is the perfect location for any type of festival or showcase event! The large midway behind the west grandstands along with two banquet halls makes for an ideal indoor/outdoor event! During the California Rodeo Salinas in July the midway holds thousands of attendees who enjoy food, shopping and music all in one location. With the midway measuring approx. 360ft x 100ft the possibilities are endless and the space is ample. Not to mention for large festivals the dirt arena may also be utilized!
