Salem Civic Center


The Salem Civic Center, the hub of the James E. Taliaferro Sports and Entertainment Complex, became a part of Salem’s landscape October 1967. For more than 40 years the 7,000 seat facility has welcomed a who’s who of entertainment’s brightest stars to its stage including the likes of Bill Cosby, Kenny Chesney, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Def Leppard and Larry The Cable Guy.

The Civic Center currently is the home of the NCAA Division III men’s basketball Final Four, but its round ball roots go all the way back to the old American Basketball Association when Dr. J, Julius Erving, played in the arena as a member of the Virginia Squires.

One of the Complex’s most important features is its parking. There are more than 4000 free parking spots at the Taliaferro Complex, and this not only gives patrons easy access to shows, but it also provides tremendous flexibility for outside events like the Gingerbread Classic Cheer and Dance Competition.  The Salem Civic Center is a great venue for a Cheer and Dance Competition in VA.
