The George Jenkins Arena, named for George Jenkins, the founder of Publix Super Markets, debuted in 1974 as the concert venue of choice in Central 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 site of the world renowned "Disney On Ice" premier each fall.
Jenkins Arena features reserved seating for over 8,000 and can accommodate 10,000 with festival style configuration. 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 seating.
With its 12,000 square feet of concourse space, EAW Sound System, rigging capability of 1 ton per point, there is no limit to the type of event or events that we can host.
