The Lubbock Memorial Civic Center
The Lubbock Memorial Civic Center, 1501 Mac Davis Lane, was dedicated in 1976 to the memory of those who were killed in the May 11, 1970, tornado.

Built on the site where much of the tornado damage occurred, the 300,000-square-foot facility has the flexibility to accomodate large events and small specialized gatherings.

The main exhibit hall has 40,000 square feet of space and is the site of a variety of special shows, exhibits and civic functions. The Moe Turner Banquet Hall has 14,105 square feet of space.

The Civic Center Theatre, which houses concerts and stage productions as well as many other events, can seat up to 1,377 people. The Civic Center also boasts 12 meeting rooms of various sizes to accomodate many organizations.

The first major event, following its grand opening, was an areawide evangelistic campaign on March 21-25, 1977. It was sponsored by Lubbock's Sunset Church of Christ.
