The George Jenkins Arena, debuted in 1974 as the concert venue of choice in Florida. Hosting rock & roll legends such as Elvis Presley, Led Zeppelin, Rod Stewart and many more to enthusiastic crowds of nearly 10,000, the Jenkins Arena stands as one of the premier concert venues in Florida.
The arena is much more than a concert venue. Each year, it plays host to events such as FHSAA basketball, wrestling & volleyball tournaments, livestock events including rodeos and bull riding, dog shows, trade shows, music & comedy shows, banquets, monster trucks, professional wrestling and is the new home of the Orlando Magic’s G-League Affiliate Team, The Lakeland Magic.
The arena offers several meeting and dressing rooms along with two show offices. For a more intimate event, the arena can also be configured into our “arenatorium” half-house setting.Please see our Building Guidelines
