McAllen Convention Center
McAllen’s new 174,000 square foot convention center offers state of the art meeting and show space within walking distance of restaurants and shopping. It hosts music concerts, trade shows, national conventions, dance recitals, and more.
The multi-million dollar facility opened its doors in 2007. It is also home to the Veteran’s War Memorial of Texas that is located on the east side of the property.
Oval Park on the west side of the grounds has a fountain and reflecting pool where "Music Afterhours" is held, where a variety of musicians perform every other friday. People congregate to the park to have picnics, use the beautiful backdrop to take pictures for weddings, or simply take a stroll.
