altIn 1938, the civic leaders of the City of Rochester dedicated the new Mayo Civic Auditorium. This  building, designed as a dual-venue complex, provided much needed entertainment for the citizens of a growing community.

In 1998 Rochester voters authorized the extension of the city's 1/2% sales tax which when combined with a bonding grant from the state of Minnesota would offer renovation of the auditorium, adding a north lobby and 25,000 square foot exhibit hall, updating connectivity technology, and updating existing HVAC and finishes.    

In 2001, the new 25,200 square foot Exhibit Hall addition was completed, creating a facility of 120,000 square feet.
