The Dow Event Center (formerly known as The Saginaw County Event Center, formerly known as The Saginaw Civic Center) is located in downtown Saginaw, Michigan. The center consists of three parts: Heritage Theater, a meeting facility formerly known as Unity Hall, and Wendler Arena, an ice rink. It also houses the OHL junior ice hockey team named Saginaw Spirit. In 2008 served its first year as host to the Indoor Football League's now defunct Saginaw Sting. The facility has housed a number of hockey teams in the past, such as the Saginaw LumberKings, Saginaw Wheels and both the IHL and UHL incarnations of the Saginaw Gears.

Wendler Arena has a capacity of 7,600 people for concerts (without the ice), and 5,500 for hockey games. Heritage Theater has a capacity of 2,276 people.
