Coliseum building 600x200.jpg

The Rapides Parish Coliseum (often called the Rapides Coliseum, as noted on the sign out front) is located in Alexandria, Louisiana. It can seat about 6,500 people in the 65,000-square-foot building. Additional space is in the smaller Exhibition Hall, also on the property. Built in 1965, the dome-topped Coliseum has hosted thousands of events, including music concerts, "monster" truck shows, professional wrestling, trade shows and sporting events.

Past sports teams based at the Rapides Coliseum include the Louisiana Rangers, a member of the IPFL, and the Alexandria Warthogs, a member of the WPHL.

Additional facilities on the grounds include a 23,000-square-foot Exhibition Hall often used for trade shows and the 65,000 square foot Lewis-Odom Agricultural Complex used during livestock auctions and 4-H shows.
