Concept of Proposed New Arena at State Fair Park

Bennett Event Center

The Bennett Event Center is NOW OPEN for business. Since opening in January 2017, the following shows have taken place in the BEC: the OKC Home & Garden Show, An Affair of the Heart, the Leake Classic Car Show & Auction, the OKC Auto Show, the RV Super Show and the OKC Farm Show. It offers, among other amenities, 201,000 square-foot of contiguous floor space. Thanks to MAPS 3, the BEC opened debt-free!

The BEC offers current State Fair Park clients the ability to expand and enhance their events, while bringing new national and international shows to Oklahoma. The BEC is the largest event space in Oklahoma City.
