Civic Center

The Ruston Civic Center is a newly renovated multifunction facility perfect for trade shows, banquets, weddings, receptions and cultural events. Built in the heart of a rapidly growing city, the Civic Center is located within the Historic District, entertainment venues, and restaurants. Louisiana Tech University is within walking distance and Grambling State University is only three miles away from the downtown.

We can accommodate a variety of event configurations with a large conference hall that can be divided into two separate halls. An executive boardroom is available for breakout sessions or small seminars. The large kitchen, with direct access to the loading bay, is convenient for outside caterers. The concession area, strategically located in the large entrance room, is also available for rental.

The Historic Fire Station located at 200 E. Mississippi in downtown Ruston is also available for rent. Recently refurbished it was opened to the public in October of 2008. It boasts a full caterer’s kitchen, original fire poles, and beautifully landscaped garden area with pergola and fountain. The building will hold 80 to 120 people making it the perfect venue for weddings, rehearsal dinners, parties, or business meetings.

Our experienced staff is available to help plan event set-up.
