The Livestock Show Office has several facilities available for rent. Buildings available for rent are:

  • John M. Parker Coliseum – has a dirt floor arena and is mainly used for livestock-type events.
  • Nelson Memorial – is used for small events and meetings with a warming kitchen.
  • Mini Farm – is used for medium-size events and meetings with a warming kitchen.

All persons renting any of the above buildings for their events are required to get a liability insurance policy and security through LSU Campus Police unless it is an AgCenter- or LSU-sponsored event. Additional rental information can be found in the Rules and Rental Fees.

Please call the Livestock Show Office at 225-578-2255 or email lso@agcenter.lsu.edu to check availability of the facilities or if you have any additional questions.
